Also, what's the estimate on how much weight Gareth has put on in the last 3 years?

I'm gonna go with 20. Dude's got a fucking double chin.

He's turning into the Robert Smith of the British indie scene.

Conversely, is it me or is Kim getting hotter?

Yes, much hotter. As has Ellen, like we discussed. But if you can only go after one, it has to be the one who doesn't have her brother right there.

And yeah, homeboy has tacked on some pounds, which raises some questions about veganism. Boner and the bro from Fucked Up better watch their undoubtedly sweaty backs.

Idiots.
They don't do the cold open live, as such; they played an intro song by Why? with the lights down before kicking in. It fit pretty nicely, I thought.

I haven't been keeping track until recently, but I'm going to say yes.

I'm not getting any sense at all that there is a point to going both nights they play here. So which night do I choose?

Would you rather hear acoustic Stuck At A Match Point or acoustic Wild Shuttles?


Oh wait, wrong tour.

Maybe they'll do an acoustic "Plan A."

Gotta say, I love the chorus of Plan A enough that it surpasses either of those 'Cock tracks.

Plan A would be cooler if LC! had released a music video for it pandering to American football fans.

Encore:
Miserabilia
Sweet Dreams, Sweet Cheeks

I'm pretty sure that las night's setlist was almost exactly like this, but we didn't get The Black Bird, The Dark Slope. Which really pissed me off. And I don't think there was a replacement song.

Positives: Gareth is really leaving it all on stage. I was pretty blown away by the power he was putting into the "loud" vocal on To Tundra. Some funny stage banter as usual. He came into the crowd during Sweet Dreams, but unlike last time I saw them none of the band members followed him.

Kim is definitely hotter but her stage presence still sucks; she only showed signs of life during You! Me! Dancing! and Sweet Dreams. And it must be said, maybe she was just low in the mix, but her backing vocals just don't hit like Ellen, who was sorely missed on stuff like Miserabilia and Death to Los Camp! This is another reason why I missed Black Bird/Dark Slope because it's the one song she gets to actually go for it.

Ellen was looking pretty damed fine in a tight white tank top and her hair pulled back. Unfortunately I was a little further back then I like to be and she tends to hide behind Tom. Which leads me to an interesting observation: it's pretty odd that the guy who writes ALL the music and is playing all the lead guitar parts is so off to the side stage-wise. Like, if you were standing on the right side of the floor, you couldn't even see him because he was blocked by the stack. I feel like he used to be closer to Gareth, but now Kim essentially shares center stage and that's kind of bullshit. Ellen used to be on the far left IIRC, and now Rob a.k.a. Sparky Deathcab is in that spot.

Did we ever discuss Harriet's departure on here? I feel like I noticed her absence before, but apparently she left in August of last year and I don't remember hearing the news. Anyway, I kind of miss there being a violin, not to mention another hottie.

The fact that they play the same setlist every night is one of the reasons I'm only going to try to go to one of their two shows next week. You'd think they could vary them a little better at this point.

I don't remember this being the case in the past. It's extremely lazy. And I don't even consider it a great setlist. Of course, two of the singles off Romance is Boring (Listed Buildings and the title track) are two of my least favorites on the album, so I'm in the minority on that. I love that album but aside from Straight In At 101 and The Sea Is A Great Place... they aren't highlighting it as well as they could be.

At least they're playing two of the best tracks on WABWAD, and of course the opening and closers from Youngster are deservedly staples, as is You! Me! Dancing!

Sweet Dreams, Sweet Cheeks may be my favorite song of theirs. I love it. It's on the Mount Rushmore for sure.
