Here was the setlist:

I Should Live in Salt
Don't Swallow the Cap
Bloodbuzz Ohio
Sorrow
Sea of Love
Demons
Afraid of Everyone
Conversation 16
Squalor Victoria
I Need My Girl
This Is the Last Time
Slipped
Baby, We'll Be Fine
Abel
Slow Show
Pink Rabbits
Graceless
England
About Today
Fake Empire

Encore:
Humiliation
Mr. November
Terrible Love
Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks
(Acoustic)

So, they've now done a lot of the late night shows:

Jimmy Fallon - Sea of Love (off-air: I Need My Girl)
David Letterman - Don't Swallow the Cap
Stephen Colbert - Graceless
Jimmy Kimmel - Graceless, This Is the Last Time (off-air: Don't Swallow the Cap, Sea of Love, Pink Rabbits)
Conan O'Brien - This Is the Last Time

I also read that they have filmed and will soon be releasing a video for Graceless.

I didn't really think This Is the Last Time worked very well as a tv performance song.

I didn't either, but I guess they didn't want to play one they'd already played and they can't play Demons because he says "fuck."

Yeah - it was okay. So far, Graceless on Colbert is my fav of their TV show performances for this album.

No fair, as good as this is the last time is, it would have to be a pretty shitty version of graceless for that song to even compete.


That Barclays boot is the first time I've listened to a bootleg all the way through in ages. What a fantastic set. Pink rabbits has officially grown on me.

Interesting - that's the only song on the new album that hasn't grown on me yet. I thought the live version at the Greek was decent, but not enough to bring the song to life for me.

I love Pink Rabbits as a lyric and piano piece, but I think Matt struggles a bit with whatever register it is he is singing in. This is especially apparent in live versions.

His voice is fine in the studio version. Still my favourite song from the record, the ending is out of this world.

Sounds like I just need to keep listening...

Sometimes, the last song I "get" becomes the next To Here Know When.

I thought (and still somewhat do, although I'm coming around) it was pretty lackluster and entirely too long/repetitive on the album. Whereas a live version where Matt doesn't sound like he's singing in the right key at all is far more appealing to me.

I agree. Definitely one of my favs. I liked it a lot when they played it here, but agree with iYup that his voice has sounded a bit off on versions of it I've seen on Youtube. Maybe he sounded like that here, but I was too happy to notice. Maybe not. I don't know.
