Out On The Tiles

Aaron Lewis at the Casino Ballroom July 25th, 2011

Review and Photography by Micah Gummel.

On July 25th, I made the rainy drive to Hampton Beach filled with anticipation for the evening. Staind's Aaron Lewis was performing an acoustic show at the Hampton beach casino ballroom!

Picture this: Aaron walks on stage, sporting a black Hatebreed t-shirt, a camo baseball cap and jeans, takes his guitar and sits down on a stool. The setting reminded me of VH1 Storytellers, with a rug in the middle of the stage, a couple of stools, his cigarettes, a couple microphones and guitar cases and several Figi water bottles near by. This was perfect for the ballroom set-up. People were singing along, shouting out song requests with the comedic Aaron answering them back or singing a couple lines.
