June 2011 7MP3

We've got an incredible version of "Lucky" for our June 7MP3. This was recorded live at a the now (semi) infamous Ross/Juliano City Arts Factory show in March 2007. Jason and Thomas played mostly covers that night with a few 7M3 gems from the past (like this one) and debuted several songs that would later be on day&nightdriving.

If you are reading this, chances are you are familiar with "Lucky". It's one of the bands most popular songs and finds its way into the set most every night. I first heard the song right after American Standard was released at at radio station (WEND) in Charlotte. The band was doing an acoustic set live at WEND and decided to play a new song, which turned out to be "Lucky". It's impact on me (and everyone else at Mammoth, their record label at the time) was incredible. The label was in the midst of the rocket known as "Cumbersome" but we couldn't wait to release the next record so the rest of the world could hear "Lucky". After legal wrangling and delays brought on by the Mammoth/Atlantic split, "Lucky" led off the Rock Crown release and became that records biggest hit despite the fact it was the third single on the record (behind "Rock Crown" and "Make Up Your Mind"). It still gives me chills listening to it now, and this City Arts version certainly delivers.

You know the drill by now. Enjoy the free download and please share the track with your friends via email, Facebook, and Twitter. We'll even bring back Friendster if you want. The download widget makes it easy for you to share the track.

We've got some Florida dates July 4th weekend and many others in the works. Stay tuned to the Tour section and/or let us pepper you with the good word on Facebook and Twitter.

Stay cool this summer. Enjoy "Lucky"
