Tonight's (Acoustic!) Setlist: 8/23/14, Highlands Aqua Club, Penn Hills, Pa.

'The hill's up, the valley's down below...'

With our drummer taking his lovely fiancee on a well-deserved vacation, we took tonight's set a little higher into the Appalachian hills with a laid-back, dare I say countrified acoustic evening.
