Aqueous finished up a three-night (or rather, day) run of sold out shows at Transit Drive-In in Lockport, NY. The Buffalo-bred jam quartet played the outdoor cinema June 19th—21st to sold out crowds for each afternoon show.
Aqueous is just the latest act to execute outdoor concerts at a drive-in theater, as these socially distanced gatherings become the new normal. While COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on just about every industry, including live concerts and movie theaters, it has apparently done wonders for the United States’ many drive-in theaters that formerly sat vacant.
The run of shows, which began each day at 2 p.m. ET and ran until 5, featured the band playing through an array of its own hits in addition to beloved covers. The crowds who showed up on Saturday were treated to a one-song second set, where the band jammed out “Half In Half Out” for over an hour. The old maxim of “never miss a Sunday show” rang true the next day, however, as during the second set the band members looped their instruments and departed the stage to drive around the crowd on golf carts. While the band made sure to maintain a safe distance between themselves and the crowd, this certainly added a personal touch to this Black Mirror plot twist that has now become the new normal.
