Some prominent faces were in the audience last night at Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill for The Tempe Trap show. Openers for Neon Trees tonight at Ovations Live! Showroom at Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino in Chandler, Paper Tongues, took in the show, as well as frequent concertgoer Jess Bowen, drummer for local band The Summer Set. The bar and restaurant got pretty packed for the Australian headliners, whose simple set still managed to get hands clapping and people dancing. Here is what people were Tweeting about after the show. (And read our review here.)
@Paper_Tongues- Watching Temper Trap at the moment. So good. -df
@thejessset- It's not even fair how good Temper Trap is live. Even these country hillbillies at toby keith's bar are loving it.
