Oh man oh man oh MAN!

Pilgrimage, Begin the Begin and Find the River? Holy shit, that's three of my usual top five right there.

Dear REM: Please please PLEASE come to Seattle in a non-festival format later this year. PLEASE. Seeing the new songs live will probably even make me like the new album more. It worked with the last one!

That's awesome, NSW. And thanks for the shout-out.

Full set from last night:

Living Well Is The Best Revenge
These Days
Begin The Begin
What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?
Pilgrimage
Hollow Man
Animal
Man-Sized Wreath
Ignoreland
The Great Beyond
Accelerate
Houston
Electrolite
The One I Love
Final Straw
Find The River
Let Me In
Walk Unafraid
Orange Crush
Horse To Water
Bad Day
I’m Gonna DJ

Encore:
Supernatural Superserious
Pretty Persuasion
Losing My Religion
Fall On Me (w/ Johnny Marr)
Man On The Moon

The band seemed much more loose and fun, a welcome change from the lackluster "Around The Sun" tour. Stipe flubbed the second verse of "Man-Sized Wreath" and didn't get to the microphone in time for "Bad Day." Highlights were definitely the rarities, but "Fall On Me" with Buck and Marr on dueling Rickenbakers was unreal.

Also ran into Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche between The National and Modest Mouse!

I'm psyched! I'm going to see them at Jones Beach on Long Island 6/14. Hopefully, the weather is good.

Oh, and The National were great. I'm not a Modest Mouse fan, but, I liked a few songs, have no idea what songs those were, though.

Find the River.
Nice. That was some setlist you got.

Sweet, NOTHING off Reveal, and only one bad song, The Final Straw.

I can live with that.

I like The Lifting from Reveal, but that's it. Yeah, I tell you, it was a great show. I was exhausted last night, totally forgot to mention that Marr played during Fall on Me. That was fantastic. If that's the last time I ever see them I went out with a winner.

You can take a FLAMETHROWER TO THAT PLACE?

Glad you got such a great show.
