No, on foot. Went out a back entrance from the venue. It was late and I had to drive three hours back to Austin, so I tried to get out as quickly as possible. Dude was just there hangin' outside. Remembered me, though not my name. So that was good.

Here's the setlist for those who care. It was good:

 
Runaway
Anyone's Ghost
Mistaken For Strangers
Bloodbuzz Ohio
Slow Show
Squalor Victoria
Afraid Of Everyone
Available
Cardinal Song
Conversation 16
Apartment Story
All The Wine
Abel
Green Gloves
England
Fake Empire

Mr. November
Terrible Love
About Today
Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks


Pretty standard, I'm assuming. Was glad to get "About Today," though.

And here's a Where's Waldo for my facebook palz:

Hilarious. Obviously the "intro", but especially the ending, where he actually goes out of the concert hall to finish screaming what I think is Mr.November.
That the NASH! walk around cities with party cups is probably the least surprising thing I've seen all day.

I'm not much of an audiophile, and normally can't tell the difference between these things, but I'm inclined to agree with you here. I really like this version better.

This isn't an audophile thing. It's a mixing thing. In the album version the drums sound like they were tapped out on bongos or something. This actually sounds like a rock band playing.

Chances of that happening is like getting Sunday Bloody Sunday and With or Without You on a U2 concert.

I just heard "Anyone's Ghost" in McDonald's. They play popular songs. The song after that was by Taylor Swift.

I was astounded, to say the least.

A few weeks ago I was watching TV and during a documentary they used about 5 National songs, all from Boxer or High Violet.

I heard the same song - "Anyone's Ghost," that is - in a super-chain grocery store the other day as well.

Means it's on the Muzak playlist. They have all kinds of off the wall music on those. Once there was a Coldplay B-Side on one of the CDs the restaurant I worked at got.

I'm honestly surprised that Peef heard The National and Taylor. Unless the McDonalds is using a CD (And I would think they would've upgraded to the satellite version by now) the radio stations usually keep to pretty much one genre.

Jive, that was probably the alternative rock station. I used to try and sit through that channel during my shifts because I'd get to hear music like that, but I had to put up with too much of the actual alternative rock to get to the good stuff and it just wasn't worth it.

The 80s station, now that was fun. I'd hear "Red Light" on that station almost every day and at least four different Cure songs that were not one of the big singles.

Uh...yeah, I know a little bit more about Muzak than I'd like to admit.
