Title Fight with Single Mothers and Pianos Become the Teeth - The Talent Farm, Pembroke Pines - November 18
Pure mutiny ensued as crowd members flew off one another. "To watch the sea of people in the pit having so much fun makes me wish I was 235 years younger," posted Talent Farm owner, Kevin Burns on his Facebook page, Monday morning. The otherwise introverted bandmates came out of their shells as they performed songs like "Memorial Field" for their devoted audience. "It's great to be back somewhere familiar, see some faces we haven't seen in a while," said Ned Russin to an applause.
As the band played songs like "27," the crowd stormed the stage. The musicians wiped sweat from their eyes with their inner elbows between strums as a mosh pit broke out in the middle of the floor. The band closed with their most recent single, "Secret Society" as fans shouted along and fans somersaulted across the audience.
"Tonight at the show, we had a lot of fun and there was a lot of stage diving and good friends and good people," Rhoden said. The band members jumped in the air enthusiastically as a free-for-all arose. Water bottles darted through the air and gave people in the crowd much needed mists of cool water (other than sweat for a change). "It might have been the best Florida show we've ever played," Rhoden revealed after the show. "It felt good to be back at the Talent Farm. It's notoriously hot, but there's charm to that too."
