Review: The Asylum’s Haiti Fundraiser Concert
Last night, Altoona locals Eyes Wide performed along side Russell Dauberman and Andrew Woomer at Waring Commons for The Asylum Haiti fundraiser. With a five dollar donation at the door, students relaxed to an acoustic setting that reminded me of a campfire or an open-mic night at a cafe.
The crowd hovered close to the stage but the performers thought it would be more appropriate if everyone sat down on the floor as they sang about typical first world white boy problems, such as girls being bitches and herpes. Sitting on the floor listening to acoustic guitar was ideal even though Russell Dauberman depicted himself as an “asshole” for looking down on everyone. Nothing To Prove turned out to be a no-show and that’s where Andrew Woomer came into the line-up and fit in perfectly with the performance. It wasn’t until Eyes Wide took the stage that everyone jumped right back up and got even closer to the band to make lead singer Grant “more comfortable.”
Just another way to end the weekend instead of the usual catching up on homework assignments at the library or vegging out with Wings Over to Sunday night football.
