The Fray Invade the MLB Fan Cave Part Deux

I got a nice tweet from Patrick Ella saying we could use his photos from The Fray performing at the MLB Fan Cave.  I jumped at the chance because A) his pictures are a lot better than mine (what I get for just using my iPhone at all times) B) more pictures the better!  So here are five more fun shots from The Fray’s performance at the MLB Fan Cave.  Thanks to @plipella for letting us use them!  Follow him on Twitter why don’t ya?

Isaac Slade was in a very jovial mood throughout the concert.

 Joe King killin’ it on the guitar.

Nothing like closing out the concert with a round of high fives from cave dweller Ricardo Marquez in his pursuit of setting the Guinness Book of World Records high five record.  The Fray got him four closer to his goal.

Hope you enjoyed some more pictures from the performance!  We’ll be back with baseball blogs later tonight as I’ll have my Sunday edition of “Five Things I Think I Think” and the podcast #7 will be up in next couple of days!

The Fray Invade the MLB Fan Cave

I apologize in advance for a post not really about baseball, BUT it did happen in the MLB Fan Cave.  Internationally acclaimed band The Fray took center stage with the Cave Monster as a backdrop for a intimate performance for a packed crowd in New York City.  The Denver-based band was back on tour after performing at Radio City Music Hall the night before in support of their new album “Scars and Stories.”

The Fray played a four-song set with their two newest singles “Heartbeat” and “Run For Your Life”.  They then went to two fan favorites “You Found Me” and closed with “How to Save A Life.”  My kingdom for them to have played “Over My Head (Cable Car),” which is in my top ten favorite songs ever, but beggars can’t be choosers.

The band embraced the baseball theme.  Isaac Slade, the bands lead singer, admitted to partying a little too hard the night before.  He assured the crowd that he was going to be like Cal Ripken, Jr. and perservere, even dedicating a song to The Iron Man.  He then asked “how many game Ripken had played in a row?”  I’ll give you one guess which baseball nerd yelled TWO THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED AND THIRTY TWO with no hesitation.  It was me.  BOOM.

Cave Dweller Ashley Chavez has the full interview with The Fray coming soon on mlbfancave.com, but in the mean time.  Pictures!

Cave Dweller Ashley Chavez MC’s and introduces The Fray to the stage.

Next up in the MLB Fan Cave concert series is Daughtry on Thursday, April 23rd.  Should be another amazing time for everyone on 4th and Broadway.
