Title: Cleveland 4/15 Show
Post by: benfoldspianoplaya on April 15, 2010, 08:04:20 PM
My 11th folds show and easily my favorite! (first time seeing him solo)

This isn't the correct order, but these were the songs.

Free Coffee
Annie Waits
All you Can Eat
Effington
Brainwasched
Levi Johnstons Blues
Picture Window
Landed
TIME
Steven's Last Night in Town (with awesome drum solo)
Hiro's song (all on his drum set)
Rock this Bitch on drums
Emaline
Sentimental Guy
Gone
Zak and Sara
MESS
Hiroshima
You Don't Know Me
Bitch Went Nutz
Morgan Davis (which I requested!)
Luckiest
Still Fighting It
Army
Not the same (4 part harmony)
One Angry Dwarf 200 Solemn Faces

Encore:
Rockin' The Suburbs
Song For the Dumped

This show was awesome. He was on fire (nothing new there) and played forever, taking a ton of requests. His drum solo on Steven's Last night was amazing. All I can say is his fingers must hurt like hell after tonight.

To echo benfoldspianoplaya -- I was writing the setlist as the show was going, so I'll give you the order (not that it really matters but I thought I'd share for posterity's sake):

Free Coffee (slight issue with the lyrics)
Annie Waits
Sentimental Guy
Effington (he commented that he made the song up on stage... or at least started writing it while on stage)
Time (comments: "this was a song on a very mid-tempo album... and it got overlooked [as an option for playing on tour]")
Landed
All U Can Eat
Brainwasched (with story-- he lamented "You know, if the song wasn't so bad... it could have been "you're so vain"-- that's a good song"
Gone
Bitch Went Nutz (with a black maracca (sp?!?) - I got the feeling that most of the crowd didn't have Stems & Seeds so they were umm... surprised to say the least)
Levi Johnston's Blues (he commented that he "blew most of the album budget" in the middle of the song on hand claps, a choir, and other things)
Picture Window
You Don't Know Me
Still Fighting It
Zak and Sara
Stephen's Last Night in Town with Drum Solo
Hiro's Song (on Drums)
Luckiest
Mess (by request)
Hiroshima (by request)
Rock This Bitch (by screamed request)-- On Drums
Emmaline (by request)
Secret Life of Morgan Davis (ZOMG!)
Army
Not the Same
One Angry Dwarf & 200 Solemn Faces  \m/
-Encore-
Rockin The Suburbs (with mouth-made sound effects)
Song for the Dumped

THANK YOU for requesting Morgan Davis.  I wasn't close enough to yell anything, but I was SO hoping I'd hear that sometime.

Normally I would glare furiously at this point, but I can't be mad at you, Ms. Quilty.

I like it when people call me Miss Quilty. :D

But, I don't know man! It's like something CHANGED him. Friday's gig in Montclair was great and all, but Monday he was just on a different wavelength. Like some kind of wicked inspiration exploded in his head.

He played Morgan Davis in Boston without a request for it. I think he's been playing it a lot lately, just out of choice. I would go for Girl, because that's not something he'd be likely to play without a request for it.

I'd love to hear him do 'Wandering'. Could somebody of you request it on some of his next gigs? I'm in Germany, so it's a bit of a problem but just to know that he would sing Wandering sends shivers down my spine.
