The Thought Lot played host to four bands last Saturday night: Old Souls, Shin High Foxes, His Dream of Lions and Next to Nothing.
Old Souls, a laid-back duo playing without the rest of their band, started the night off with a mellow sound that had the crowd of about 60 swaying with the music.
Shin High Foxes, an indie rock band, came next and really got the crowd going. They started off with a song called “Hope” then moved on to play “How Can We Make Love Stay” and “What We Desire.” They rounded out their set with “Northeast Binge,” which saw a majority of the people in the crowd getting off their couches and coming up to the stage to listen.
“I just try to help people feel the music the way that I do,” said drummer AJ Dawson after the show.
His Dream of Lions, formerly known as Archie, was up next, bringing its five members and great presence to the stage.
The alternative rock band kept the crowd into the show throughout the first half of its set with some upbeat songs and mixed it up at the end with a slower song, featuring keyboard player, Colby Witko and vocalist Seth Coggeshall.
Next To Nothing, a five-member pop-punk band from Smithsburg, Md., rounded out the night with guest vocalist Benji Glunt from the band Farewell Friend.
Collan Sheaffer, member of Shin High Foxes and Memento Music Promotions said that not only will this show help fund future shows put on by his promotion company, but also it benefited The Thought Lot as well as each band.
