hello from the soho apple store... i can't see anything, so i figured i'd contribute a live setlist/review!

they've started with jesusland, and whilst the sound down here on the main floor of the store isn't great, everyone upstairs sounds pretty happy!

ok, that rocked.

quite entertainingly, everyone down here is trying to watch the stage on a 14 inch laptop that has been helpfully placed halfway up the stairs...

zach and sarah now. long intro by ben, explaining how this song had a long "gestation period"

ok i actually don't recognise this next one (the shortcomings of not hanging out here anymore, i realise!), nor did i understand a word of ben's intro... sorry.

they shut all the computers down during kate...

it was followed by gracie, then the encore was philosophy which segued into hava nagila, and then bastard.

it was really hard to hear from downstairs, i don't know what the quality was like for the people who experienced it properly... when ben was really giving it some it was fantastic, philosophy and zak and sarah really stood out for me... they are admittedly two of my favourites but then i think boxing could well be my actual all time favourite, and tonight, while it was really great to hear it, it didn't sound too good.

finally i'd like to take a moment to appreciate the fact that the two signs within the store that i could see from my vantage point read "music" and "genius", which i thought was very fitting :-)

well thank you for that ;D
My new philosophy is that a crappy tape deck somewhere plays a greatest hits collection of strange and tender moments, lost, stranded, and forgotten. I'll meet you there.

Did he do the rap before or after the song? Because he sometimes does a rap called "Shortbus Benny" before singing "One angry dwarf"...
