This was a hell of a show. I was really truly counting on hearing Tame since they played it so much recently and I've never gotten to see this live, but I'll live.

There were a couple shitshow crowd members, especially this red haired guy who was plastered beyond redemption hassling people at the front, but boy howdy.

Highlights for me were Silver Bullet, Planet of Sound (HELL yes, what I wouldn't give for a full Trompe Le Monde album concert), Daniel Boone sounding just as good live as it does on their wonderful record, seeing them destroy Cecilia Ann live, hearing SNAKES IN PERSON (!!!!!!!!), a truly beautiful version of Havalina, a hall shaking rendition of Nimrod's Son and St Nazaire, and just overall so much Bossanova.

There was no encore as the venue was closing.

Overall it was worth the cost of flying to NYC just to get in here. They played some really great stuff and did it with gumption I just didn't see when I saw them with Weezer and Sleigh Bells back in Summer of 2018. I'm really glad they did these little shows to close the year.

The only downside for me was during Long Rider Paz's mic was turned too low and I couldn't hear her bridge of the song, and I really love that part. I'll live though. Glad I was there.

I was up front, one person back from the guard rail. Beside me was a 50+ year old man there on his own holding his suit jacker, two dudes at the rail who were easily in their forties, beside a couple of kids who maybe were 20, and a smattering of people from all other ages. All of them singing just as hard as everyone else.

Love this fuckin' band.

Nice set, that Havalina outro is such a highlight :)

Does look like they've excavated all the deep cuts we're going to get for the moment... If their Mgt is as savvy as they're hyped up to be then I hope they're consciously building up demand for some post-Doolittle themed shows.

Although this seems to be a common refrain among folks on these boards, I believe it's a complete fallacy.

Seriously.

Tons of people (even casual fans) LOVE many of the tracks from those albums. They may not REALIZE this, because they came to the band through Greatest Hits packages or live shows or watching YouTube videos of concerts stretching back decades.

But they love those songs, and would instantly fall in line for a thematic tour of that sort (which of course would inevitably wind up featuring a few fan fave tracks from the other albums tacked on at the end).

At least that's my firm belief, for whatever such a thing might be worth.

:)

It shouldn't be a big deal for them - they seem to be slotting in COP/Pilgrim shows occasionally while still playing hits and the new stuff and they're all selling out :)
It's not even that many extra songs to learn and Paz takes all the ancient Kim stuff out of the equation.
Wait til the summer festival season is out of the way and get on with it before the next album.
