Saw them on Friday. It was the bomb. Ran into a bunch of friends who I showed them the band back in high school and we all had a blast. One of my friends begged Phil to play Travel Song and they basically serenaded us during the sound check. Phil also gave a shout out to Breakfast Pizza during the set.
And then Phil took a selfie with me because he wanted to send it to Ray.
Chris' studio yes. Beau Sorenson is the solo producer and engineer on this album - that is unless the band does some of their own recording to add to the stuff they're doing with him. I'm super excited cause I saw that as of Sept 9th Beau is actually in Springfield, MO and they're recording vocals at this studio called "The Studio" (no really) in downtown that's right next to The Outland, which is the venue where I've seen the band perform the most.
