After an impressive and energetic performance by the Athens, Georgia based Futurebirds, it was time for Band of Horses close out the evening.  Lead singer Ben Bridwell was the only band member on stage for the first song.  Before he performed, he made a joke about the rest of the band being in Birmingham, England.  The joke was a reference to a recent show the group had to cancel in Oxford, Mississippi because the equipment truck went to Oxford, North Carolina.
