Last night I had the please of spending a good chunk of the day with the awesome guys of Stick Figure. A friend and I headed out to catch sound check early in the day, and the energy was there from the minute we walked in the door. This was the first stop on their Above the Storm tour, and everyone was eager to get the show on the road. We were greeted by the ever majestic tour mascot, Cocoa, and she thoroughly enjoyed the tug duck I brought along.
After sound check, my friend and I headed over to Cantina Dos Segundos in Fishtown for some authentic Mexican cuisine and margaritas. Once we were finished, we headed back over to the Fillmore where Iya Terra was ready to take the stage. A relatively new band, made up of West Coasters, they started the night off with the proper amount of reggae vibes. This was my first time seeing them, and I am hoping certainly not my last. Next up was Twiddle, who I have had the pleasure of seeing before when he toured with Matisyahu, and did a guest spot with Roots of Creation. As an American Rock band, they were as expected totally ready to please the crowd and their loyal followers without any disappointment. I can say the Yoda was certainly a nice touch.
After a short break Cocoa made her way onto stage looking for more toys and treats and the crowd came through for her. Once she was successfully spoiled, Stick Figure took the stage to thunderous applause. They rocked old songs and new, and were absolutely rocking the crowd with positive vibes. The tour continues on through February as they make their way across the US to their final stop in Las Vegas.
