You Were Spiraling opened up this show. They have developed a following among TMBG concert goers so much that they did an encore of "Take On Me". Also, during "This Is The Road", lead singer Breslin turned around on stage while the crowd sang a line all by themselves.
Completely unexpected tonight. This was the alphabetical show. They decided to write out the entire set list in alphabetical order, minus the last two songs. Here is what the set list looked like on paper:
4 of 2
Boss (This was a new full version that should appear on the Malcolm soundtrack. Flansburgh mentioned that they wrote the first 33 seconds of the song a couple of years ago, they wrote the other 2 minutes of the song yesterday.)
Crane (First time I've ever heard this live!)
Finished (Full band version, Linnell on keyboard)
Hypnotist (First time hearing this live!)
Masshole (The band introduction song)
Spin (It just didn't happen tonight, Flans was dissapointed)
Xquisite Dead Guy
Zirdhouse In Your Soul
Well, at least the last two weren't worded like that, but it works.
Very interesting show, Flans was also promoting the new MP3 album EP, Working Undercover For The Man.
