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.

I think the quote you are looking for was acually "here's a classic".

The word 'old' was definitely used too, I'm sure.

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).

They did the Metro show the night before Lollapalooza and the secret shows in SoCal. They could make it work if they wanted to do it. But Dave is blowing smoke.

A club show or series of club shows is very possible. 4 hour shows, not a chance I'd have thought. Unless an hour of that is Dave and Taylor recounting stories of bromance or Nate singing Duran Duran covers.

FUUUUUUUUUUCK that would be epic. Except Nate can't sing worth a damn.

While I would be more than happy to see the Foos play the Factory, I think the TLA or the Trocadero would be all the more impressive, because they are even more intimate as venues and would be truly returning to their roots. Regardless, I will definitely be on hand for a show at the Factory. I'm still disappointed I missed the $2 deal way back when.

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.

Yeah, I always wonder why he always says that about Breakout. Maybe he should start saying that before playing This is a Call instead.

Because I sort of knew what was coming all night, I was so excited with the encore surprises of Wheels and BLACKBIRD! Even though he only played it for about a minute, it was a total highlight for me. Something I'll never forget.

The only minor downside was from where we were sitting, the mix was a little off. For lack of the technical knowledge to explain it, I'll just say that Dave was waaaaay too loud and Shifty all but disappeared at times. To paraphrase "Back & Forth" it wasn't that it was too grungy... it can never be too grungy... but I wonder if they didn't lose some of the... notes.
One of the best quotes from "B&F". LOOOVE IT!!!
