NYC setlist: 10-02

The setlist from the 10-02 NYC show (thoughts follow):

Neon Beanbag
Eye of the Volcano
Chemical Chords
Self Portrait with "electric brain"
Ping Pong
Double Rocker
Ecstatic Static
Lo Boob Oscillator
? (New Song)
Silver Sands
John Cage Bubblegum
Cybele's Reverie


Three Women
The Emergency Kisses
Jenny Ondioline

First, Mountain stole the show for me. That song is just too good live. Jenny Ondioline was also amazing. On the negative side, Chemical Chords and Escstatic Static haven't done much for me on the albumn, and the live versions didn't really win me over. Everything else was pretty solid.

Something I haven't seen anyone else mention is the reintroduction of a backup singer. This is the first tour they've had one since Mary. This was huge in my opinion and really brought some songs back to life that suffered with the french horn stand in. Mountain on the last tour, for example, was good, but this time, with the backup vocals, it was fantastic. John Cage Bubblegum would be undoable, I would think, without backup, and while it did not reach the classic status it did with Mary, it was great to hear.

Anyway, a delicious night of music. Can't wait to see them again tomorrow night. :)

Also, this new forum is an interface abomination.
