So everyone remembers when The Non-Commissioned Officers took home the gold at Round One of Mercy Lounge's Road to Bonnaroo series, right? Well, did anyone happen to notice frontman — and occasional Scene Arts Section contributor — Eric Lehning's prophetic announcement during the evangelical-preacher-of-rock-n-roll-style diatribe during the song "Ride"? At about three minutes into the above video, you'll hear the following:
I know that you party so hard because tomorrow may never come. But I have seen tomorrow! And I will tell you that we can live underwater! And we can love underwater! But we cannot rock and roll underwater!
Gives you chills, doesn't it? I mean, as long as you don't think about it too hard or really read that much into it. Hey, Lehning! If you're so good, what am I eating for lunch today?
