That's a hell of an encore.

Maybe he felt we earned it. I've never been part of a longer standing ovation.

Visuals were very well done. Band was unfathomably tight. THE SOOF!'s dance moves were oddly endearing. And the new stuff sounded that much better live. Keep in mind that's coming from someone who adores the new album apart from the Waiting For Guffman-aping "Get Real Get Right." How they manage to pull off "Impossible Soul" is beyond me, but it was pretty surreal to see performed in its entirety.

Like JT and the Chief mentioned, it's really obvious that most people at these shows haven't listened to the new material, be it the EP or LP. I didn't notice people leaving or anything, but the resounding laughter once the auto-tune bit in "Impossible Soul" kicked in was a telltale sign.

That's a great set, Imps. Hopefully by the time he gets to NYC the setlist will have a good mix of new and old tunes. Seven Swans and That Dress... are the shit.

Very nice, Imps. I'm very jealous, hoping I get something similar set-wise in a week and a half.

I'm actually surprised to see so much negativity for the album here, as it's being fairly well received in the other places I've seen. I think it's great as well, particularly compared to the EP. There are two songs I find forgettable, and I think Impossible Soul doesn't deserve it's length, but there's nothing I actually dislike.

I still don't understand complaints over an artist primarily playing new material live, but whatevs. Seems like it should be expected, artists other than U2 are actually proud of their new material.
 
Heyo!

The National wasn't getting shit for performing 9-10 from High Violet every night, and people were actually complaining about LCD Soundsystem not playing enough from This Is Happening. I think the reaction is primarily due to the album itself not going over all that well. Not necessarily because it's bad, but because, for fuck's sake, Sufjan uses autotune on this one. Got to get people used to the new stuff, and you don't do that by throwing all of it at them at the expense of songs they already love.

I guess it just came out as well, and most probably never even heard of the EP.

The new album is fantastic and I'm glad I got to hear it instead of Illinois stuff.

Apparently I bought a ticket to the sold out Denver show this morning during a ticket drop. I happened to email the theater asking if they expected any more tickets to go on sale. I expected a snotty response figuring they get dumb questions like that all day. But instead the manager emailed me back 2 seconds later and said CHECK NOW! I now love that woman. Orchestra center, 11th row, happiness.

It's all Imperor's fault.
