Toads Place in downtown New Haven once again pulled together a fantastic concert on Thursday Oct. 1, headlining Relient K with Barcelona and Copeland. After an intense, wild, and animated opening by the other bands, Relient K kicked off the first show of their new “A Three Hour” tour by walking onto stage to the theme song of Gilligan’s Island. With the speakers covered in fish netting and their piano converted into a boat, this was only the beginning of a great night of entertainment. Fans enjoyed a 10 song set of oldies and brand new songs. A lot of the pieces had never been performed in front of a live audience. The atmosphere of the room could be felt and seen in the faces of the hundreds of fans packed into the club and the ever growing mosh pit forming in the center. The audience spent most of the show screaming out the lyrics to their favorite songs. After an hour of pure excitement, Relient K called it a night only to be called back on stage for another two song encore demanded by the crowd. The band continued their tour on Oct. 4 at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston, MA. Look for their new CD Forget and Not Slow Down in stores now.
