If they play late night What then I either have to miss part of their amazing late night show for some other acts I want to see or completely skip some late night acts that I want to see. Every year there are at least 2 or 3 late night shows (conflicts aplenty) that I end up wanting to see.
If they play Sunday night then I miss no acts and they could still play for 2.5 hours (or more) if they wanted.
To be honest, i'll be happy wherever they are. I just know that I'd be missing out on some bands if they were late night again.
I'm with nodepression, MMJ takes precedent over all other latenight shows. And while it means I could potentially miss out on other great LNs, I know I won't regret a moment of it! I've found I'm always exhausted by the tail end of Sunday anyway and thus I feel I would enjoy MMJ less.
Damn. So is everyone else starting to really miss hearing that full song? I know we talked about this leading up to Roo, but I think I have moved to the camp that believes no Run Thru is better than part Run Thru.
You see, I think it's cool they play the end of it. It's a great track but live it's pretty long because they jam it out a bit and play it a little slower. I like the mentality that they understand how rad that middle part is, and think "well if we don't have time to play the whole thing, we can at least throw in the middle."
Not that I'm not dying to see the full version live.
After last nights show they are changing their name to My Morning Poncho. Thunderstorms pushed them back about 45 minutes so we only got about an hour and a half of music. Still a great show, but they ended up cutting out the rarities for the most part.
I saw the set list this morning. That's to bad they couldn't do the full set.
I just wish they would have looked at the time right before they went on and said to themselves:
"This is gonna be a short set guys cause we can't go past curfew. Let's give them one hell of a setlist. We have to keep the 2 opening tracks the same. Let's throw in Cobra, Phone, Tyrone, Dondante, Steam, Wordless, Black Metal, Mahgeetah, One Big Holiday, and finish on Run Thru (all of it)."
I would have took that 12 over the 14 they played and wouldn't care that it was a short set at all. Probably not possible for them to switch it up last minute but it would have been cool.
Should I skip work and buy tickets for tomorrow's Philly show, or should I save that $ and hope that a NYC show is in the works? A retirement party in the office, with a high supply of alcohol, has initiated my reckless gene.
I just feel the need to post this everywhere. This new version of Dondante is a quacking beast, and I'm pretty sure Philly was the first place they busted it out. I have the bootleg from 8/20 and it's way different. It's easily the best live song in their arsenal.
Yea that sounds pretty similar to the recording from the Charlotte show, although the Philly version is a couple minutes longer. MMJ likes to jam/improvise a little bit every now and then, I would say that's more of what they are doing, I wouldn't call it a "new version" of the song.
