i didn't record the setlist but i know what songs they played. i made up a setlist from what i know, but, the songs "Of Moons Birds & Monsters", "Siberian Breaks", "Song For Dan Treacy", "Pieces Of What" & "Weekend Wars" are missing from this list because i didn't know when they played them. they are squished into this list.
4th Dimensional Transition
Time To Pretend
I Found A Whistle
the pictures didnt come out AWESOME but i don’t care. no HD camera can express the way the show just felt.
i predicted wrong. i was pretty damn close. i lost liz&tarkan because i creeped up slowly every time. not that i’m complaining, but, all my view was was Andrew Vanwyngarden’s chest up.
anywho… i seriously thought this was just absolutely amazing. the boys played SO well. the jam after The Handshake REALLY gets me. it’s the most amazing thing i have EVER seen and heard! at RCMH i just know i was in awe. my jaw was dropped. this time i knew it was coming but it still had the most amazing effect. i couldn’t stop dancing and singing! i was going nuts… ESPECIALLY for Destrokk & Brian Eno! at times it was just so amazing and beautiful that i would just close my eyes and let the music flow through my body. it felt like it was only me & the band. until i opened my eyes&saw the happiness radiating off of everyone around me. it was an absolute amazing experience. they played 4DT again and just… i fucking love that song. Live? OH GOD. ahhhhmazing. i was just in the middle of typing which ones sounded absolutely amazing until i realized i was just about to write down every song ahhahaha. so lame XD you can really tell the boys REALLY love music. the way they play is unreal. it’s so fascinating to witness artists creating art right in front of your face.
i dont care how much people think im crazy but i’m actually really upset that last night was the last time i’m going to see them live in a long time. their live shows are unlike any other ones because their music just affects me in a way no other one can. even if it’s from the sarcastic humor to the serious ones… it all just does something amazing to you.
as for the crowd… even andrew called NYC out on sucking LOL. if im not mistaken ( i could be ) he made a comment about how he wished NY was like that crowd & he said “you guys should come hang out with us in NY” haha. odd enough, the crowd was the best crowd i have ever seen at shows i’ve been to. BUT, there were more guys than girls there & they were fucking assholes. tall ass guys come and walk in front of me. do you not see how short i am? i cant even say “NO. IM HERE. IM NOT MOVING” because i’m not that kind of person. there was only one guy who was nice… but he was a little too nice hahaha. he kept hitting on me XD i asked him if i could go in front of him at one point because i couldn’t see anything & he let me and then he was like “you want me to pick you up and put you on my shoulders?” i laughed it off and said “nahh it’s cool” and he kept insisting. i actually thought it would be a good idea so i could see the full stage but i kinda really like dancing and i honestly thought i was too heavy. i didn’t tell him that because i don’t want any pity. he looked strong, but, i have self esteem issues rofl! during Congrats he held my hand up and was like “C’MON! put your hands up!!!” he then asked if i came alone, asked where i came from, if i had a boyfriend and if i wanted to dance with him. i mean, i should have said yes. i need to spice up my life. he wasn’t all bad looking… but, ( this is going to sound SO lame lmaooo ) i’m sorry. MGMT is having sex with my ears atm. you can not ruin my flow. lmao! i hope he didnt think i was mean though. i felt comfortable talking to him & i kept laughing but i seriously was too into the music to even care :x i gave short answers and didnt ask him anything back. XD i also think i got a little high while being there roffl. i don’t know what it’s like to be high but i was very light headed and just… so.. idk ahhaa
anyway, i had a shit load of fun. i dont think i want to ever miss one of their shows when and if they ever come back. i really hope they understand what their music does to some people. i would love to meet them one day & just thank them. they really are the reason why my interest in music has lit up again. i’m more eager to find more music, go to more live shows, try learning music… etc etc.
ps; was i lucky or did andrew start opening his eyes during performances? LMAO they were open for like… the whole set O_O
