We'll probably lose again but I'll gorge on fried bullshit at the fair and see my favorite band. So everyone's a winner.

Fuck yes. That was awesome. Matt is such a good frontman. Maybe more later.

That Lolla stop just got more irritating. It may very well have screwed us out of a National/Tame Impala gig.

Great, great show yesterday. I had seats which was a bit of bummer at first but I was still pretty close to the stage and had an awesome time. Lots of songs from TWFM but I was expecting that and most of those songs are great live. The only song I didn't need to hear was Slipped. Matt's banter between songs is also entertaining. My favorite quote: This song is the same key as the last one to which one of the Dessner's replied: Which is completely irrelevant.

Mr. November blew me away. I love the song but it's just so much better live. And going into the crowd always works even though it's not surprising anymore.

Setlist
 
I Should Live In Salt
Don't Swallow the Cap
Bloodbuzz Ohio
Mistaken for Strangers
Sea of Love
Slipped
Afraid of Everyone
Conversation 16
Squalor Victoria
I Need My Girl
This is the Last Time
All the Wine
Abel
Pink Rabbits
Start a War
Graceless
About Today
Fake Empire

Humiliation
Sorrow
Mr. November
Terrible Love
Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks

The highlights were Squalor Victoria, Afraid of Everyone, About Today, Humiliation, Mr. November, Terrible Love and Vanderlyle. I loved how everyone was singing quietly along with that one and the singing got louder as the song progressed. Probably because people will hear you singing (badly) if you sing too loud.


Edit: I didn't know there was an opening act and all of a sudden Local Natives started playing which was really cool. Especially because I'm loving their new record.

I hope they never drop Squalor Victoria. So good live. These setlists are ridiculous.

Yes it was the most unexpected highlight as I'm not that big a fan of the song. The only complaint I have is that Sorrow shouldn't be in the encore (it doesn't even have to be in the setlist for me). It killed the mood a bit between the more rocking songs.

Every set list should include apartment story and doesn't, but otherwise, yeah they do look pretty great.

Guess I'm the only one who's disappointed they're closing every single show with acoustic Vanderlyle. Heard it live once already, thought they could do better at the time and with another album under their belt, I'm positive they could.

Yeah I agree to a point. They've done it before, and it doesn't quite have the extra special something to be made into a staple closer. but at the same time I did greatly enjoy it when I saw it done, and I'm still directing my bitterness more toward that pseudo hipster bullshit festival they did in Boston being their tour date around here or this tour.

Not a fan of that song either. It's kinda neat acoustically, but not a closer

The Bloodbuzz-Mistaken for Strangers-Sea of Love trio sounds all sorts of awesome.

I thought it worked extremely well. It wouldn't work anywhere else either.
