In the words of C-3PO, "we've had some problems." Technical glitches have kept three of our posts from living up to their name in verb form.
But right now, it seems we can sum them up in one phrase: It is hot. It is blazing hot out here. Early in the afternoon, an overcast and a blessed breeze settled in. But that's all over now as the appropriately named Red gets ready to hit the stage.
We did get to spend a few minutes with Fireflight in their mercifully air conditioned RV, just a few hundred yards up from the Herald-Leader's Ichthus bureau, and trust me, the guys and gals in the band appreciate getting to spend the summer fest season in the AC transportation. I mean, we're all hot, but we don't have to play a show today. Jason of Hawk Neslon said he likes the length of fest sets, around 45 minutes.
More from both of those acts in a bit, when we get some time to post some sound.
I am wondering if this is the hottest day in Ichthus history, and if tomorrow will challenge it.
My daughter just looked at the 88 temperature reading in the corner of le blog and exclaimed, "How is it only 88?!"
