Photo recap: Braille & S1 Cloud 19 Tour
S1 (brown shirt) & Braille (tan shirt) brought the Cloud Nineteen Tour to Houston on 03/23/09
Still playing blog catchup, but here are some flix and commentary from Braille & S1's Houston stop on the "Cloud Nineteen" tour at Fulcher Mission near downtown.
This was just two days after SXSW and the final show on this tour so they were both understandably beat. Still, both Braille and Symbolyc One really showed their hearts and shared their time and story with the small crowd of teens.
A small crowd & sound system ain't a problem for the down-to-earth Braille
Braille Brizzy performed tracks like "For Life," "Fill It In," and "Blessed Man."

S1 played hypeman to his silky smooth "Cloud Nineteen" beats

Pastor Jason Hess closed the night with a message about God's grace when you encounter "Big Stuff."
As they've been doing at EVERY SINGLE show on the tour, Braille and S1 gave out FREE copies of their "Cloud Nineteen" album.
So far, Braille & S1 have given out almost 5,000 copies of the album.
Their goal is 30,000 and Braille told me they almost have enough donations for another print run of 10,000. They're giving these out at tour stops at churches, youth centers, prisons, and community events.
