I hope they bring The National to Philly. They are soooooo good live.

Fuck MoMo if I can have The National instead.

I might be there with you, Lance. It'll be hard for me to pass that show up.

I think both are opening the whole N. American tour...

Definitely down for either Jones Beach (it's a Saturday so the longer trek is OK) or NYC, I guess it will depend on what the TBA turns out to be.

I can understand how you feel, I find it a very difficult album to just throw into the Cd player and play. Rarely have an urge to listen.

It's the understated songs that give the album it's true beauty I reckon, Sweetness Follows, Try Not To Breate, Star Me Kitten. Everybody Hurts has been overplayed, while just about every other song requires me to be in a very particular mood for me to enjoy it.

I much prefer New Adventures, Reveal, Out Of Time, Document and Murmur personally.

Everybody Hurts can't be overplayed
that's like saying you've seen Rembrandt's Nightwatch too often

Everybody Hurts was written to fatten his resume for his future career at Hallmark.

I skip Everybody Hurts every time I listen to the album, and that's my REM concert bathroom break song.

I love Everybody Hurts, regardless of its overexposure.

Boston in June, with The National.

I've been waiting for them to announce dates, and with The National as well? AMAZING!! They're so much fun live, although it probably won't be the same as it is intimate with their fans but still a great opener. Modest Mouse is ok.

Guess I'll be day-tripping it up to Vancouver. At least it's on a Friday!
there's a large gap between vancouver and l.a. AND the sasquatch festival falls in that gap. i would not not be surprised if they headline the day that the cure doesn't headline.

anyway, this tour is off the chain. im seriously considering timing a visit to san francisco around the berkeley date; i've always wanted to see a show at the greek theatre.

I dunno it's just not immediately accessible, I suppose. There's good songs, Try Not to Breathe, Sweetness Follows, Man on the Moon, Nightswimming... a grower perhaps.

I hope they don't do Sasquatch. I hate giant festivals and don't want to drive that far to see one band.
