Friday night, Locksley was set to play their first show of the year at the Wolf’s Den at Mohegan Sun.  I hadn’t seen them in several years (after seeing them multiple times on the Hanson tour as well as opening up for Taylor’s side project Tinted Windows) and I had no idea what their fanbase in Connecticut was.  I also thought with it being a Friday night, the casino might be packed.  But I was wrong.  One of the waitresses said that due to the stuff going on in Boston, the whole casino was a bit slower that day.

When I arrived, hardly anyone was seated and no one was in line.  I was asked if I wanted to be up close and was given a front row, center seat.  The closest I had ever been at the Wolf’s Den.  When the show started about an hour later, there was really only a handful of people there, but a crowd did gather around the outer perimeter here and there.

Since it had been so long since I had seen them last, there were a bunch of new songs that I didn’t recognize. And the ones I did recognize, they seemed to totally re-work!  Overall though it was a really enjoyable show, though I wish that more people were there to witness it!  They said that some of the new songs they had never done before and may never do again.

They played for about an hour and a half, and after the show I was able to get a setlist from the guy clearing the stage (good thing too because I had no idea any of these songs names!)
