set list

I should be able to announce the Chicago date very soon. I've been starting to think about what songs we'll play at these shows, so I listened to about half of The Roaring Thirdm for the first time in I don't know how many years (aside from re;peated exposure to "Precious" when my 8 or 9 years-old-at-the-time daughter was really into it - not a situation I ever forsaw!) - and I was struck that Dirty Moons is really a whole hell of a lot different than that album. The aims are completely different, but the world(s) they take place in are the same. But in terms of both production and playing style, the two sounded drastically different to me. And I like both, they're each particularly suited to their aims.

So I'm thinking we'll play 15 songs, 9 from DM, 3 Roaring Third, 3 ancient... or something like that. If it's a drag playing old stuff we'll cut it back. But if you're going to one of these shows (Columbus, Cleveland, St. Louis, Chicago - see the myspace) and there's a song you really fucking want to hear, say so in the comments or by email (you can post comments anonymously). For the most part it doesn't make much difference to us, we like most of the songs and it's been a while. I may decide against all suggestions here, but speak now or forever hold your peace. At least until the show and you're drunkenly yelling song titles at us.

I'll be at the one in Cleveland. Word.

"Irene" was the first Prisonshake song I ever heard and I imagine I would love to hear you play that.
However, Failed to Menace is still my favorite Pshake thang. I don't know how much that is owing to it being the first one I bought, but when I later finally picked up Roaring Third, it really didn't live up to Menace for me. I mean, I like it more now. But, you know, it would pretty righteous to hear.. I don't know.. "Stumble" or "Evil Eye" (not holding my breath.)

Any chance of NYC/DC/Baltimore? Or have high gas prices and intenal band turmoil squelched anything east of West Virginia?

"From Down Here" is my non-DM/TR request. In spirit.

Irene was actually one of the first tunes I thought of, ha! Enk will be surprised that someone likes "Stumble." We'll get out east in early Spring, but I don't know how far south we'll go. DC was never a great town for us, but Philadelphia could happen. Who knows...

Carthage Burns! would be really sweet, too.

A bit behind on this, but here's my two cents anyway.

Old Stuff: "Elijah" & "Fairfield Ave. Serenade"

Roaring Third: "Carthage Burns!"

Looking forward to the Columbus show.

I am looking to be 'Stuck in St. Louis' 9/26, har har. So, if you'd indulge me with Ron Kinda World, and Irene, I'd be much obliged.
