(no rating) Oct 09, 2007 - yonder on Yonder Mountain String Band
Milwaukee show at the rave on 10/5/07

The Wood Brothers opened the show for yonder and got the crowd movin quite nicely for an acoustic guitar/upright bass duo. The Wood Bros. played several songs from "Ways Not To Lose" which inclueded Atlas, Luckiest Man, Where My Baby Might Be, and One More Day along with a few others. When Yonder came out the crowd was ready to see what they had to offer. Ben opened with Looking Back Over My Shoulder and the crowd just loved it. Yonder invited the Wood bros. back out to jam with em which was a good treat. They pulled out a brand new song named "Cupid shot me twice and missed you all together" Yonder did a wonderful job of preforming "dawns early light" "east nashville easter" and "upon the hill where they do the boogie" All in all everyone who went to the show in Mil town was done justice and I'm willing to bet the show in Mad town will be better
