The crowd at DC Sessions was the biggest I’d seen. The majority of the people were there for Carbon Leaf (who put on a great show, btw), but there were plenty of emmet fans, as each familiar song brought cheers. “Don’t Call Her” was brand new, “first time we’ve played it in public” said Todd. He asked where everyone had been the last two years, then said they’d been touring, but nobody’s coming to the shows. Also, during the intro to “Broken Oar”, he said “Scott Brotemarkle’s on vacation”. They seemed happy about the crowd response, and with any luck, there’ll be some more shows.
