Saw them at the bootleg on the 14th. first show of the tour, and first islands show in a while. nick seemed very upbeat and happy. It seemed like all of them very happy to get back out on the road. Great set, great energy. Plus Busdriver and Subtitle for Whalebone.

And what are your feelings about the new tracks played live ? I can't any setlist online but I wonder how he mixes tracks from the 4 albums.

I would truly appreciate an European tour for April/May.

The new songs sounded great live. My favorites were Hallways, Can't Feel My Face, & Don't I love you. From the previous albums they played Creeper, Swans, Don't Call Me Whitney, Heartbeat, Switched on….don't remember the rest. They played Grey Funnel Line as the encore which was beautiful. The seating arrangement was weird but at the end Nick said we could ditch the seats and most of the crowd came to the front and danced. It was a fun show! I can't for the last week of the tour(Ill be going to SF, LA, & SD).

they laid off the synth focus, so switched on and heartbeat sounded much different, but i liked them both with more of a "full band" feel. Grey Funnel Line was pretty amazing, great ending to a surprisingly long set. The seats were kind of weird, I was right up front, thankfully, but I felt bad for those who had to stand out by the edges until we "ditched the seats."

Nice sets, though I miss Arm's way songs. btw not sure if this is old info, but there should be EU tour in late may/june.
