Title: MPAC, Morristown, NJ - September 18th, 2016
Post by: Zeek on September 18, 2016, 02:52:59 PM
I did the sound check experience thing, we're in the middle of waiting for the full show later, so I'll update with a set list probably tonight/tomorrow.

In terms of uncommon (?) songs he sampled, we got:
Silver Street
Fired
Twin Falls
Ascent of Stan

I yelled for Fannie Packs, but he sadly didn't hear me.

Set list so far:
(Part I)
Annie Waits
Last Polka
Phone in a Pool
Effington
Bastard
Landed
Not the Same
Capable of Anything
I'm Not the Man
Rockin' the Bitch Pushing a VW Bug (story from 1992 pushing a classic VW bug owned by a teacher)
Not a Fan - explained the backstory as a man, decked out in tattoos got back stage at a Folds Five concert, asking what Brick was about (he wasn't a fan, but his girlfriend was).  Ben described him as a zealot.  Upon Ben's "leaving it to the listener" explanation, the guy pulled a knife saying, "I think I know what it's about," and security grabbed him.

Part II is upcoming, and will be a paper airplane request.
 
(Part II)
Jackson Cannery
Song for the Dumped
Doc Pomus
Kate
Bitches Ain't Shit
Philosophy
The Luckiest
Alice Childress
Tiny Dancer

EDIT: Forgot Bastard in the opening set.  We did the 4 part counter point as an audience.

Doc Pomus and Alice Childress, nice!

Also, what was your paper airplane request?  Always curious to hear the Burbians wanna see.

I was still set on hearing For Those of Y'all Who Wear Fanny Packs for whatever reason.  I was with two other people, and one had the same request as me, and my other friend hoped for Everlong by the Foo Fighters.
