Perhaps you should have seen them Thursday at the Vic theatre instead, they played "I'm Open" and "Off He Goes".

And I believe the song you were hoping for from the new album is "Unemployable", not "Unemployed". The 4 songs they played last night are far better live songs than "Unemployable". (OK, maybe not "Wasted Reprise" )

Thanks for the info. Figures the fan club gets the more obscure good stuff. I'm Open is one of my absolute favs, and I know it's not a common one.

Hopefully that show will pop up online, if it hasn't already.

And I don't know how Unemployable sounds live, but I think it's the best song on the album, as it's something different after 3 albums of pretty rote rock and roll, even if done well.

Do I know the feeling that I was feeling last year after Bonnaroo?!

Since then, I've become a jacketastic fanatic.

Please check out my reviews of them on the Intermedia archive (interference home page) and also, may I recommend the jacket forums at mymorningjacket.com.

Um... Off He Goes, In My Tree and Hail Hail are on the Gorge live set. The first two are, along with Present Tense, my favorites on the album.

SO glad I finally got around to seeing Yo La Tengo, and they didn't disappont. Much more Sonic Youth-esque jamming than I expected, but it was welcome.
i've seen PJ 6 times post no code and i've seen 'em play 10 out of 12 songs off of no code (who you are & around the bend are the only ones i haven't seen... considering they've only played around the bend 10 times, and haven't played who you are since '98... yea)

to contrast, i've seen u2 13 times post pop and i've seen 'em play zero songs off of pop.

i don't think "ignored" quite fits for PJ's relationship to no code.

and no code is also my favorite PJ album, and lukin's one of my favorite songs off of it. so of course, you can't please everyone... but PJ comes as close as anyone.

I've seen them once, in Augusta, ME 1996. Also known as the Dennis Rodman show.

They played Who You Are at that one.

I heard Who You Are sound-checked here in St. John's...so amazing. It was completely closed to the public, but I pretended I was part of a figure-skating meeting that was taking place in the room next door...I lasted about five minutes when they caught me just sticking my ear to the door.

I agree with them embracing No Code. Some of their most heartfelt, passionate performances are in the material from that album.

Weird, I remember looking through the track listings and not seeing anything from it.

Still only 3 songs though.

And In My Tree is in my PJ top 10.

Dennis made an appearance Sunday night at Lolla, and there was a show in Dallas in 1998 that can also claim to be "the Dennis Rodman show", he spent 45 drunken minutes onstage that night...the man gets around.
