In honor of the Weiss family's visit to Springfield this Saturday.
We were able to see mewithoutYou in concert at Cornerstone Music Festival many summers back when RVA was still just a booth with pretty things and children weren't yet on our to do list. We were set up in a hot, dusty tent with other return vendors and musicians and it seemed that Aaron Weiss (aka: THE HOT ONE) was great friends with a few of the folks in the next aisle and spent a few hours over the weekend hanging out and catching up with them. However, I never actually TALK to the indie musicians that I admire, I just walk past and watch them from a distance. I'm one of THOSE fans.
I will say with 100% certainty that a mewithoutYou concert is one of the most inspiring and enthusiastic live shows you might ever attend. They are usually small enough that you feel a part of things and magical enough that you feel like the creativity and thought involved came from a place of love for the audience rather than to distract you from the mediocre performance.
Brett is the one with the detailed knowledge of the band and their history, personal stories, theology, etc. I love them for their lyrics and beautiful videos like this one. Enjoy!
