This was a wholly underrated tour with an unexpectedly small turnout. Granted, the thought that most often crops up when we find out a show is held in a casino is sadness. Mostly sadness at the thought of a musical career near its end struggling to stay afloat. Saturday couldn’t be farther from that assumption and small as the crowd was (and vodka-soaked as they may have been from all the available samples and cocktails) the show blew us all away. It was held at Snoqualmie Casino’s new outdoor venue, Mountain View. It was mostly a mountain view for the performers (with the mountain-scape to the crowds’ backs) but the amazing weather and surrounding forest just added to the ambiance of a fantastic day of music. The lineup consisted of the fledgling Ingram Hill and Of Verona, the Rembrandts, the Gin Blossoms, Colin Hay, and the headliner Orianthi. There were a lot of great shots, so check out more in the flickr set.
