They played well and despite the small room and set up, it sounded great, but then again the small venue caused the audience to sometimes almost overwhelm Wince's voice. Still, it was a great concert.

Sound: Most bands can't reproduce the sound they do on albums, but others can, and Hurt are one of the few bands that can. Lead singer, J. Loren Wince, was amazing. You could put the album on and you could barely tell any difference. He was always spot on and never off key. He also played guitar, banjo, and violin while singing, which is difficult, and pulled it off well. Evan Johns (drummer) played with his usual set, Paul Spatola used his guitar and dolbro, and Joshua Ansley jammed on his bass. They played well and despite the small room and set up, it sounded great, but then again the small venue caused the audience to sometimes almost overwhelm Wince's voice. Still, it was a great concert. // 9

Perfomance: The audience went wild when they made their dramatic entrance on stage. By dramatic I mean that they turned the lights down had Johns sneak on stage and start a simple but enticing drum beat then each member slowly but surely got on stage and joined in on the charade to start off the song Summers Lost. They also played Ten Ton Brick, Alone with the Sea, Loaded, from Vol. II, and Rapture, Falls Apart, Forever, Danse Russe, House Carpenter, from Vol. I, and finished with Thank you for Listening as an Encore. The band was great on stage the lighting and it's effects went well with the show and the stage was plain. Wince had fun throwing water from his water bottle onto the crowd and Spatola threw his picks out and Johns threw his sticks. The Performance was higher than standard, it was truly amazing. // 9

Overall Impression: The concert took place in Little Rock, Arkansas at the Revolution Music Room on October 22, 2007. The openers was Cinder Road Who was okay but the audience didn't too much enjoy them. That was probably the worst part and the best would be when the band came back out after the show to talk with the audience. The tickets cost about 20 USD and was well worth the money. The entire show was unforgettable and I am definitely going again in Febuary of 2008. // 10
