ALO & Brett Dennen & Lucas Reynolds - The State Theater - 5/5/2007

Review by Nicole Parisi-Smith.

This show was a co-bill: ALO played a set, and then Brett Dennen played a set. Lucas Reynolds, of the band Blue Merle, opened the show.

Brett was joined on stage by drummer Randy Schwartz, and ALO bassist Steve Adams.

The musicians and their managers were very welcoming to the Washington, DC Chapter, and were excited to have us there! It was a great show!

One of the highlights of the show was when Zach Gill, who plays the keys for ALO (and also for Jack Johnson) gave us a shout-out from the stage, during their set. This was thanks to Surfrider member Jeff DiNunzio, who I met for the first time, at the show. Unbenownst to the Surfrider table, Jeff wrote a message about Trestles on the back of a Washington, DC Chapter sticker, and proactively handed it to Zach, who read it from the stage. Thanks, Jeff!!

Thanks to Jason Rubin, who came to the show to help me run the Surfrider table!
