Around late afternoon, Third Eye Blind posted this on their Twitter and Facebook account: “guerrilla style acoustic performance TONIGHT! Underneath St Louis Arch. 7:30. See you there…”
Fast forward to 7:30 PM, where 100+ (??? I’m bad at estimated those things) people showed up under the St. Louis Arch grounds wondering if we were going to be punk’d or something. Thankfully not, as the band showed up to play an impromptu set, presumably making a stop here before a show in Springfield, MO tomorrow. The little experiment paid off and fans got a real close-up experience with Stephan Jenkins and the other band members.
-Huge thanks to Allison B. for retweeting the info on Twitter.
-A group of SLU students requested “Graduate” in dedication to their impending graduation.
-I was kind of surprised at generally younger demographic in attendance. Does that reflect their usage of FB/Twitter or Third Eye Blind continuing to pick up new fans?
