I haven't been this excited for a Folds show in years. As long as he does what he did back in 2002 (i.e. play requests that are yelled out) it should be an awesome tour. DC show here I come!

Yeah, but was that pre or post- Rock This Bitch?  Because that's usually what people are yelling out, and that kind of overpowers legit song requests.

That's when you get sensible people to drown them out. In Chicago last summer, we had a group of 10 or so of us yelling out for Kate for an encore over cries of rock this bitch.  I don't know if we had any effect, but he did come out and play Kate...

No offense, but Kate is a waste of a request. There's like a 95% chance he's gonna play it. Though, I think i  vaguely remember that.....

None taken, but it was my second show, and he hadn't played it at the first one.  Having hit the dead time between the set and the encore, it still not being played, at least some of us wanted it over Rock this Bitch :)

Family of me has to be one of the most depressing songs in a kids movie.

it'd be great to hear anything out of over the hedge. even if it was just a little ditty.

i was lucky enough to be at the only show we know of him playing Still at. but it was before it was out, and the song was not nearly finished yet.

i have seen him flub up rockin the suburbs (or maybe it was to see if we were paying attention) and slip a line from the oth version in instead of the original.

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.
