I personally really like WIW and glad I caught it at MSG. I thought it was a good closer for the album

I've had a hell of a good time at my shows so far. I can get why people aren't too jazzed about it but I cant think of a tour I've had legitimately more fun on since probably 2012. Even then I think they sound better now (AFTW is one of my favorite albums by them so getting the back 5 debuts plus that nutty 11/30/12 show was epic).

I donno, maybe its a state of mind and having taken a break from being super insane hardcore on the band for the past couple of years but I'm having the time of my DMB life this run.

So, Kill The King is totally about Trump now, right?

Crazy thing is we are 3 more playings of it before its the same number of times it was played in 2006, 4 more and this is its heaviest year ever.

Song has grown up a lot over this tour, I was mildly surprised that it got tighter with slight arrangement changes and seemingly "set" lyrics between MSG and Albany.

Band can still surprise us sometimes.

For sure, there was a “just your lies” line from the one last night I believe

yup! I was listening to Feathered's tape on the way home from work (I will have it up on dt.org later tonight) and the lyrics had made a total shift to being a fantastic subliminal Trump bashing song

Goddamn MTA. I’m so late for this show, the MTA and my XS intel modem that can’t lock onto Verizon fast enough went and double posted.

Hey wherever he gets his inspiration to make a long gone song into a goddamn beast that’s up there in the most played rotation I’m 100% behind

YNK / KTK / Nancies & Watchtower were insane highlights of last night. I legitimately got every single song minus Jimi Thing that I complain about on here for getting constantly (OSW, DDTW, Granny, Grey St, CoCo) and that show was SUCH a goddamn blast to be at. Even stuff like WAYG I enjoyed because it had been something like 13 years since I’ve heard it full band. Burning is one of my favorite Talking Heads song and only got it at the Caravan before..... which was 7 years ago.

Idk I’ve gotten all the covers this tour at 3 shows and only one repeat. But that Sweet Emotion Minarets Thing they’re doing is a total blast at the show. As a super jaded person I’m having a real hard time bitching right now. Fuck the songs I don’t like that I get at half of my shows but they’re knocking it out of the park this tour and I’ve gotten over it. The fall tour has been a total party to be at so far.

Have there been plenty of cheap tickets available outside the venues? I'm having to make DC my only show, and I don't want to pay too much, so I'm trying to decide whether I should get something from Stubhub or just drive up there the day of.

I think best/safest bet is to buy on Stubhub either day before or day of show, the prices will be at their lowest on there then.

How the hell has he not even brought out Snow Outside for a winter tour?? Why does he hate that album? Much better than CT, save the horrible lull in the middle.

Seek Up, The Stone, and Dancing Nancies sound so bad without a violin. Maybe not bad.. but the violin is desperately missed. And why does this guy Buddy ONLY play the organ? Butch used to play keys and add depth and complexity..

I had a great time at Mohegan and Albany and my GF enjoyed them too as well as both SPAC shows over the summer, but I regret she didn't get to see these songs with Boyd on them live.

the problem is that most of the time, with the way boyd played, they sounded bad with the violin.

between having "the violin sound" played out of tune, or making the move to a new sound with a competent musician, i'm taking the latter 100% of the time.
