First ever intermission at Mountain Stage? No, first ever Fire Alarm.
About mid-way through the set by YARN the building had to be evacuated when the fire-alarm began blaring throughout the Cultural Center. Thankfully it was a false-alarm and everyone was back inside with the music back underway in about 15 minutes. Thanks for sticking around!
I asked our photographer Brian Blauser if this had ever happened to him. "NEVER!" he said matter-of-factly. There's a first time for everything.
