no not a live dvd, I'm against those in principle for the most part, absolutely would not release a dvd of a show unless it met some pretty stringent criteria (and that's not gonna happen, making new records is more important to me)

how bout we just chill about it until I can tell you the whole deal, k thx cool xoxo jd

well, as it turns out, this company you've heard of was shooting the show for later broadcast - they sent me a thing to sign about it today, will let you know if it works out, lots of people have to sign off on it for it to happen. so now you & I both know what those big cameras were about!

Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but they waited until afterwards to inform you and get your permission?

For a long time when people used to ask me what m y favorite concert was. I'd say my favorite live act was the Mountain Goats but the best concert was probably The Stooges.

Not anymore. This is it, this is the best one I've seen. Guys, there are so many great songs on this setlist I got beaten into submission. The stuff I've heard a million times had a new power to them and the obscure fan friendly songs had an incredible deliveries the come from the years of wisdom he acquired after they were written.

Traveled all the way from D.C., fresh from being laid off. Got to high five the man as he walked passed me on the way out like he was the star QB who just completed a monster hail mary. And this was the night afterthe Q and A thing.

Add delicious beer being served (Fat Tire I believe, a really good belgian white) with John Vanderslice behind the bar (though I think he was there getting beer for his close friends as there was an attendent there.) I even saw the Johns hanging out at the bar area afterwords being super nice to everyone.

Once in a lifetime John. And your one in a million.

Yeah that's correct - not a big deal, pretty common, people who tape do it too ("I taped the show, do you mind if I share it?"winking smiley & frankly I prefer it that way - knowing that I'm being recorded tends to diminish my performance, it's one reason you don't hear more new/rare stuff at shows - I look out & see cell phone cameras pointing & the air kinda goes outta me

Am I right in guessing that there is a request not to share the setlist? (I competely respect that, but I just want to save myself the trouble of checking here all day.)

OK NOW I FEEL BAD.

come on, now. no need to be too harsh on the young'ns. Chelt's disappointment is understandable.

Just know that as much as we all drink to Mr. Darnielle's health, his career will be a very, very long one, so there will be plenty of time for us all to see him.

The setlist is a bit of a touchy subject. John stated that he didn't want people complaining with a new tour and new music rolling out that they didn't get the same songs as the San Francisco crowd. And its understandable, the man's not Wayne Newton; tying him to some of those songs too closely diminishes a lot of the verve of the band.

Neal: Sorry we didn't get to meet up at the show. If you were able to high 5 Mr. Darnielle at the show, we were likely pretty close to each other. I was the drunk guy. I will be at the DC show, maybe we could meet up for a drink.

oh right. tis a shame though! i think those that didn't go just want to share in the excitement of seeing rare songs being played, rather than screaming out requests for those songs at gigs to come. i could be wrong though lol.

Not just that but he basically said if he hears people yelling for these songs on tour it will almost guarantee he doesn't play them. Not knowing them may be to people's benefit during the tour! For those who need to know I'm sure the setlist will get out eventually. They always do. smiling smiley

uh, sorry?

its just seriously frustrating that i was so close and yet so far from what people are kind of describing as the best show ever. im kind of done whining about it anyway if it makes you feel better.

LeVar looks like he's about to crash the Enterprise or something - who knew reading was so exciting?

i put those 3 vids up on youtube. i'll happily take them down if that's what's preferred. given what John said at the show, i tried to limit it mostly to songs that are more commonly available, and made sure to put the camera away to respect his wishes for certain songs.

anyhow, i didn't know of this forum until now, but have been a big fan for a few years, so i'll use this post to say thank you for such memorable songs and performances!
