The only time I saw them they had to restart the first song because Matt butchered the opening so badly. Felt kinda bad for Aaron since it was at a festival he co-curated.

Theyre so authentic and sweet about it when it happens. And they deliver some really amazing performances.

is this sloppy show and good/fine performance typical?

seeing them for first time in dec, and my expectations are starting to decline.

Saw them at the Belly Up in aspen and they did All The Wine twice and basically aborted it both times because Matt couldnt get the lyrics right and when he did he was laughing at them.

Theyre awesome live though.


I wanted to go to that show...NYE show right? We have a Belly Up in San Diego and it's awesome.

And I echo Strat, you will have a great time. I've just seen them a bunch so this one didn't live up to the past experiences. They also played too many songs off the new album which solidified to me it's the worst album they've put out.

yeah agreed, they fuck with each other about it in a jovial way. they're definitely a studio band, but catching them live is a nice event. what i like about it is that they fuck it up. i don't like perfect shows that go off too smoothly. i want my rock shows to be unpredictable.

so these guys are in Chicago for an Obama Foundation event on Wednesday, but they're playing a small venue in the West Loop tonight (House of Vans). It was lottery only, and I missed the deadline. But I broke down and paid some dude $100 to be his +1 tonight. God help me.

Pretty stellar. It's always nice to see them in a tiny venue. Because it was a "free" show, I knew they wouldn't play a complete show. But the free beer (and posters) made up for it. Hell, I was home by 9:00.

Nobody Else Will Be There
The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness
Walk It Back
Guilty Party (dedicated to Paul Manafort)
Don't Swallow the Cap
Bloodbuzz Ohio (with Richard Reed Parry)
I Need My Girl
Turtleneck
Day I Die
Mr. November

Encore:

Wasp Nest
Carin at the Liquor Store
The KKK Took My Baby Away (Ramones cover)

I haven't listened to the new album at all since giving it my first initial listens. I was so underwhelmed by those first couple times through that I've had zero desire to spin the album again. I've got a four hour drive ahead of me today so I am considering giving it another shot today.

They've been playing a lot of random, seldom played songs lately: Karen, Driver Surprise Me, Guest Room, Gospel, Brainy . . .

This bodes well for their upcoming US tour.
