Since we had the shittiest seats for this show.....TOP ROW(we were so high we could touch the ceiling) I'm hoping he wasn't blowing smoke up our ass......I need another show with a closer vantage point.

I still remember the look of terror in Shiflett's eyes after that happened! it went right past his head!
Dave said *multiple* times last night that they'd be back to the Electric Factory (enough that I take him seriously). That's really cool. ???
and at the last NJ show he dedicated Breakout to Me and the "old foo fighters fans". also said that about Monkey Wrench last night.

Default I can't wait for the electric factory!!

My first concert ever was last night at the Wells Fargo center to see the guys and they made it the best night of my life and they made my first concert one that probably won't be topped by anyone except them. They honestly brought me to tears and made me feel amazing. Thanks guys.

Pierre just played the audio of Dave saying they would play the Electric Factory on WMMR. I must say, it did NOT sound like it was just stage banter. He sounded like there is something in the works....

like has already been posted--he said the exact same thing in Atlanta, Charlotte, DC and NYC.

Nate's real last name is St. Mendel if we go by what Dave says.

That's what I'm saying... to me, this did not sound like Dave's typical stage banter... ie- "St. Mendel". I'm not trying to say it's definitely going to happen, but I think it's a little premature to say that Dave was just trying to stoke the crowd. The DJ I mentioned in my first post also said he asked Dave backstage if he was serious and Dave said yes. Just reporting what I heard on the radio, that's all.

FYI, at tonight's show in D.C., Dave said they'd come back to play a four-hour show at the 9:30 Club. Draw your own conclusions . . . .

What's your source? Do you know something the rest of us don't?

As awesome as it would be, I don't see how they could pull it off logistically. Unless they did a week-long residency or allocated tickets using some kind of lottery system. It's not easy going from a sold-out 18,000 seat arena to an 1800 capacity club.

Btw, Dave and co rocked my socks off last night. And Joy Formidable OWNED it -- so proud of them!

No inside scoop - just that Dave is really tight w the owners of that club (as in he's one of them).
