hey, i'm mike.

just got back. they were great! walked on to London Calling, opened with High Lonesome and didn't look back. not a marathon of a show, but totally fun. i was around the 2nd or 3rd row, center stage.

setlist was something like this (probably forgetting a few songs)

High Lonesome
Casanova, Baby!
Old White Lincoln
Even Cowgirls Get the Blues
The '59 Sound
We Came to Dance
Film Noir
Miles Davis and the Cool
Senor and the Queen
The Patient Ferris Wheel
I'da Called You Woody, Joe
Angry Johnny and the Radio/If I Had a Boat
Great Expectations
Here's Looking at You, Kid
The Backseat

Blue Jeans and White T-Shirts
Boomboxes and Dictionaries
1930


highlight of the night for me was when Brian sang to me for a solid 5 seconds. awesome.

the opening acts were good too (though Murder by Death would have been better if some drugged up messed up woman with long dreadlocks that smelled like garbage wasn't standing close to me. you had to duck whenever she started to swing her hair). if you haven't checked out Frank Turner, you should. I have to say, Murder by Death is probably the best rock band i've ever seen that uses a full-time cellist.

Closing on 1930- seems to be making it's way back into sets more frequently now, only a good thing!

Seems like a pretty solid setlist. I'm seeing them tonight in Calgary and I'm guessing its exactly the same. No Navesink or Say I won't. Uh oh Gaslight. You might leave me slightly disappointed...
First time seein Murder By Death though so they'll pick up the slack.

My encore destroyed yours. I can't wait to post the vids. I think two of the performances are pretty rare to come by...
Second time seeing Gaslight and I was far from disappointed. No Navesink but i think everyone would take what I saw instead

Oh you'll see. I worked first thing this morning and the show was last night so I haven't had time to up the videos. I'm thinkin i'll probably do it in another topic or its own topic. I got some of Murder By Death too
I guess I can give a hint though... back to back covers... kinda

I am so glad they are playing 1930 again... it was the first song that drew me into the band and I must admit I was bummed when they quit playing it.

still my favorite TGA song.

I am trying to shuffle my work schedule around so I can see them in Richmond and DC... I am hoping for a repeat of Wurzburg!

You saw a good set for a first gig, Say I Won't is great live, as is Navesink Banks, but you ain't going to get them all first time and it gives you something to hope for next time! I've seen this band 6 times this year here in the UK and each time different songs have stood out for differing reasons.

1930 in the encore is great, we got that in Nottingham on their last night in England on the March tour due, I think, to me and a couple of others yelling for it a few times between songs. Absolutely made my night to hear that.

Brad, we're looking forward to seeing your videos!

I was really bummed that TGA didn't play Say I Won't OR Woody last night in Minneapolis...definitely two of my favorites.

I posted a link in the youtube videos section. And i think opened a new topic for the Say I Won't (House of the rising sun) video.
