Swap out "Drunk Girls" for "Dance Yrself Clean" and I'd be perfectly content.
Haven't seen the setlists? Are they playing "Home" at all? Everything else on TIH hit me right away, but "Home" seems to be the grower on the album for me. I look forward to it every time I listen to the album. Would be a great show closer. Is definitely is in my top 10 album closers, along with:
- "Radio Radio, Elvis Costello", This Year's Model (US) - "New York I Love You", LCD Soundsystem, Sound of Silver - "EMI", Sex Pistols, Never Mind the Bollocks - "Answering Machine", Replacements, Let It Be - "Street Spirit", Radiohead, The Bends - "The Late Greats", Wilco, A Ghost Is Born - "Here Comes a Regular", Replacements, Tim - "This Must Be The Place", Talking Heads, Speaking in Tongues - "Get Back", Beatles, Let it Be

They surprisingly stick to the older stuff. I caught them at Webster Hall and they played "I Can Change", "Drunk Girls", "Pow Pow"...same with Coachella. So that seems to be the three new tracks they've chosen. But all the older stuff sounds even better. They go crazy during "Yeah (Crass Version)" with lasers and everything.
I pray this doesn't conflict with DSOTM...but I'm seeing them twice in NY....so, I might have to miss this although it'll hurt.

True...I think when the album is out more songs will be added...but don't expect too much. At one show he made comments like going to see The Smiths and getting "Panic" instead of "This Charming Man". So he may incorporate a song or two but very heavy on older stuff. I'd kill to hear "Dance Yrself Clean" though.
Home>Yr City's a Sucker at least on the albums. I think the buildup/release of Home and Dance Yrself Clean will be pretty amazing live. I really hope they play Yeah at Bonnaroo too. That freakout at the end is great.

I have faith that once the album is actually released and starts getting more exposure that they'll add more of the new stuff to the setlist. I mean, has there ever been a more fitting song title for Bonnaroo than "Dance Yrself Clean"? James Murphy is all about the ironic lyrics and meanings, he HAS to play this.
What do people think of Somebody's Calling me? It's probably my least favorite song. I feel like it drags on a whole lot, and I'm just counting down the seconds until Home starts if I actually do listen to it.
One month until Roo, this set is definitely the one I am looking most forward to seeing. Such a tight band, and great material to pull from. Cannot for the life of me understand the LCD haters, but I guess to each their own.
I went back and created this youtube playlist of them performing in the KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic studio. Have heard this performance before, but never watched the video. Love seeing them perform and play real instruments. Excellent Joy Division cover too.
