this set made my sunday 10x better for sure. i waited through cymande and kurt kile (both GREAT shows) and got second row... i touched him during i love you, honeybear while he was crowdsurfing on us. kinda bummed he didn't do nancy from now on, but the ideal husband and funtimes in babylon were highlights for me. his stage banter was expected, and still just as amusing.
I somehow forgot how much I was originally anticipating this set, and then the excitement literally hit me right as the show was about to start. It was definitely a highlight of the weekend, and I was ecstatic that he played I'm Writing a Novel and Funtimes in Babylon. Other favorite moment was Nothing Good Ever Happens.
It's a lot better than Real Love Baby. Kinda hope he takes it in a bolder direction with this album though
What would "bolder" be for you?
I'm not saying he needs to recreate Kid A and suddenly fall in love wit synths and drum machines (a la Radiohead, Sufjan, Bon Iver) but I think he is an incredibly talented songwriter and would like to see him venture more outside of his usual.
