OK, so I just went to the best small concert in the world. This band Silverline (who opened for POD and really rock) played at a local church (including the hardest cover of "Jesus Freak" I have ever heard, which rivals even Tait's rendition). It was held in the basement, with a low ceiling and everything. It felt just like the awesome clubs that I hope to go to someday. However, I can't feel my neck, hear, or speak clearly. So I'd call it a worthwile concert.
So this is a band that plays simply because they love God and want to tell people about Jesus. They work their own merch table, travel by bus all night to get to shows, and work other jobs to pay the bills. I think we need more bands like them.
