Bands play a variety of stops in a tour. I’m sure after a blur of shows, venues start to seem the same for bands. But Cornerstone is always different. Something about the festival brings out the excitement and action of the band.
Paper Route played at the Gallery tent earlier tonight. I’ve seen the band a couple of times now, even at the first appearance here at the festival a couple years ago. The band has energy and stage presence sure, but this year’s show at Cornerstone was something else. The band was all smiles, leaping across the stage and playing with gusto I’ve never seen in their previous shows.
Girls in the crowd were so overwhelmed they were crying. Guys were nodding along with their eyes closed. These kind of shows are what make Cornerstone so special and different from other concerts.
