Brandon apparently sold his soul in order to write a song that appealed to almost every person on earth. However, he had never seen the (first) finale of Futurama, so he didn't realize that any deal with the devil comes at a price. His was the inability to ever sing this song live well.

Well, didn't know what to expect with that cover, but it went over pretty well, I think.

I suppose he'd play every song from his album, but I was kind of surprised to hear "Magdelena", especially so early in the set.

EDIT: I'm slow.

Nah, Vampire Weekend next and Phoenix is the headliner. He only has about 10 mins or so left.

I've never heard any of these songs he's doing other than Bette Davis Eyes, but I've admittedly enjoyed.

They're all from the new album.

He's only got 10 minutes left? Jesus, short set. And the fact he left in the two covers (counting a Killers song as a cover of course) is kind of surprising.

He better play Hard Enough or Only the Young before he bails .

They all have 30 minutes except for the headliner. The times are on the first page.

And I have a short attention span and forgot . Sorz.

EDIT: Obviously it took an artist I really cared about for me to notice how short the sets were lol.

No, he doesn't.

I thought the Bette Davis Eyes cover was weak, unfortunately. Leighton Meester did it better.

He's giving it his all though, and is a likable guy, so I'm enjoying it for the most part.

Hmmmm, this reworking of When You Were Young, I think, might be really crappy.

I think he sounds fine, but I admittedly haven't heard any of this stuff.

Yeah, I'm not digging it, nice try Brandon, but no cigar.

I've never heard a good live version of "Crossfire", but I'm happy with everything else from Flamingo.

"Only the Young"

I'm certain.

Jilted Lovers was good though.

Oh cool, there is a female up there singing with him, so maybe he'll close with "Hard Enough". Unless this is it? He didn't say this was his last one.
