Lone Wolf: 6 August 2010 - Chicago

It’s been a long, long day and a dark, dark night. Almost apologetically, Lone Wolf leaves amidst gracious applause, back into the steamy darkness of a somber night.

Cloud Cult: 15 April 2010 - Chicago

It’s not always possible to know when a Cloud Cult song begins and ends. But, that’s the whole point. Human emotions are never that calculated.

This was The Soundtrack of Our Lives’ last night of their US tour, and it was an emotional one for the fans and the band, too.
