I headed up to The Met in Pawtucket, RI on Friday night with mixed emotions – happy and excited because the line up for this show was going to be great, but also with a bit of a heavy heart knowing this was probably going to be the last time I’d ever see A Loss For Words play a show.

In the center of the carpet, there’s a large hardwood dance floor with plenty of room for large crowds to dance or gather for a ceremony.
