Friendship with the Foo Fighters ended.
Now The Holy Shits is my best friend.

Definitely a fun show, and you could tell they enjoyed playing something new!

I wish it was inside(Palladium is pretty cool) and the sound quality was better. They definitely didn't have their guys check that out.

Definitely worth the drive for me...Now to drive all the way to Vancouver and Portland next week!!

The interesting thing here, is that Dave is clearly aware of what the fans think. This setlist sure seems like an acknowledgement to me. Have they ever played a show that so prioritised the deep cuts over the big hits before?

The little club/secret shows have historically always had varying levels of deep cuts but they have always played a lot of the hits as well. This is the first time I can think of where they've solely played the rare stuff, with the exception of Everlong and I guess Congregration.

Dingwalls 2007, for example:


Breakout
My Hero
Times Like These
For All The Cows
Cheer Up, Boys (Your Make Up Is Running)
Wind Up
Stacked Actors
Everlong
Monkey Wrench
Hey, Johnny Park!
Low
Band On The Run
New Way Home
Best Of You
All My Life

Or Troubadour in 2015, after they'd played Wasting Light

Stacked Actors
The Pretender
My Hero
Generator
I'll Stick Around
Enough Space
Times Like These
Cold Day In The Sun
Big Me
Wattershed
Long Road To Ruin
Skin And Bones
Aurora
All My Life
For All The Cows
Monkey Wrench
Hey, Johnny Park!
Everlong
Best Of You
Butterflies
This Is A Call

They've always been a mixture. Not like this. There is no doubt Dave and the guys know what the nerds want, it just depends if they want to play them to crowds that are by majority not the big nerdy fans.

But, as we always point out, people will never become the "nerdy" fans if they never hear those songs live. And those people who grew up listening to those songs either live back in the day or on record will stop going to shows if they know that they won't hear the songs they love. It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. You don't play for the "nerds" at the main shows because how you do the main shows means that the nerds no longer go.

I don't want to claim to speak for all the "nerds" but we both know a good 50 or 60 people between us who have drifted away from the band but who would be there every tour if something like this setlist was regular:

White Limo
All My Life
Rope
The Pretender
My Hero
Learn to Fly
Arlandria
Breakout
The Sky Is A Neighbourhood
Cold Day in the Sun
I'll Stick Around
Walk
Generator
These Days
Monkey Wrench
Hey, Johnny Park!
Alone + Easy Target
Sunday Rain
This Is a Call
Run
Best of You

Times Like These
Winnebago
Wattershed
For All the Cows
Exhausted
Everlong

You don't even need to have those specific songs every night. Rotate out Winnebago/Wattershed/Exhausted/Alone + Easy Target for, say, Aurora/New Way Home/Up In Arms/Enough Space or similar and I am willing to bet that 99.9% of fans would come away ecstatic and the nerds would be amongst that number.

Hell, look at me - I skipped the shows in Chicago this summer and even the thought of them playing 1 or 2 of these songs in the autumn has got me wondering if there are still tickets to shows near me.

Yup, you could see some guys with professional looking cameras in the fan footage. Maybe if we're lucky they'll put the whole thing on YouTube.

Maybe if we're lucky they'll start playing the flipping songs live more often so we don't need to watch it on youtube.
