Oh, awesome. Hopefully he plays something other than "Fitz."

I hope the spinning gramophone is fixed and that he doesn't blame us.

If it is broken, I will scream, "Damn those New Mexicans!" at the top of my lungs.

Did you have Lonely, Dear as the opener? If so, how was he/they?

I am a forgetful SOB. You could say that I'm a useless creature.

As was to be expected, the show as quite good. All the predictable tracks were highlights (Nervous Tic, Plasticities, Fitz, Anonanimal, Fake Palindromes, Imitosis, Tables & Chairs). The two tracks that surprised me were Joyful's Robot/Ghost song, and a track that's apparently called 'Why?' (just like teh gr00p I liek!). Both were fantastic live, I'll have to buy "Why?" off of iTunes.

I went back and listened to Robot/Ghost after the show and it wasn't nearly as good as it was live and I decided it wasn't my favorite song on Noble Beast at all. But damn, it was great live, wasn't it?

I don't remember "Why."

Was Tables & Chairs the last song of the night?

Did you like Loney, Dear, dear?

Yeah, I just listened to Robot/Ghost a little bit ago, and I agree that it's much better live.

Why? was the first song of the encore, Andy solo. He talks through most of it, starts with him saying something like "Why did you do that? I wish you wouldn't have". It was quite entertaining. I'm worried that the album version may sound nothing like it.

Tables and Chairs was the last song of the main set (there was an encore of 2 songs). This was the last song when I saw him this summer as well, so I'm assuming it's the song you left during.

Randomly I ran into two people from my graduating class in high school at the show though, and ended up talking to them through out almost all of Lonely Dear, so I admittedly didn't pay close attention. I did like what I heard though.

I made a bathroom run during the first encore (I had to go ever since I was standing in line outside in the cold so it had evolved into an emergency situation) so I think I missed Why. Maybe I heard Tables & Chairs and just don't know it. I don't have that record yet though I have a bunch of songs from it. I've looked everywhere and can't find it, as usual here. I should have bought it at the show.

Why? live is da bomb. The version you'll find on iTunes (from The Swimming Hour) is a'ight.

Did you get his digits?
