I was sure Sarah or Pat would have posted the set list by now, but since they haven't, here's a report.
Soul Asylum, fireworks, and reconnecting with friends made for a pretty spectacular night!
The highlight of the show was hearing them do Easy Street! As soon as Danny said, "Here's one we never play," I knew that's what it was going to be. When they finished, Dave said something like, "We didn't totally
screw that up. I give it an Okay-minus." Then he added, "Next time we're going to try for an Okay-plus." Meanwhile, it sounded absolutely awesome to me and I was thrilled that they played it. I think it's looking pretty good that you guys who are going to the upcoming shows will get to hear it.

Dave looked scrumptious, and a couple of people have posted photos on Flickr, so you can see ample evidence of that:

He had brief guitar problems and had to play a strange blonde acoustic guitar for a little while that he wasn't happy with. Kyle had to come out and put duct tape on it to muffle the sound a bit. But it was only a brief glitch and didn't detract from a great set.
Dave did his pirate and artificial plant jokes, but Danny got the biggest laugh with his joke: "Did you hear President Bush is thinking about getting his nipples pierced? Well, he already has a little Dick Cheney."
I've posted about so many shows that my adjectives have lost their currency, but it really was a fantastic show. And it was especially fun to see a slightly different set than the one I heard a couple of weeks ago in Kansas City. I'm always sad when they don't do Closer to the Stars, but it was wonderful to hear Never Really Been, Easy Street, and Summer of Drugs. And it was so much fun to hang out with Andrew, Pat, and Sarah and to see Lance.
Now I have to wait until August 18 before I get to see them again.
