They just announced a webcast of night 1 from Red Rocks last year for this Friday night. Been dropping stuff on nugs too. 7 new shows out today (2015 SF run, some overseas 2012 stuff, and two nights in Athens 2007.) Red Rocks show will be on nugs following the stream
One Big Holiday is the final song at nearly every show that isn’t a multi-show run at the same venue. Their setlists also have trends, Victory Dance or Circuital tend to open up the show, I’m Amazed & Off the Record come early. Phone Went West or Dondante as the big song to close the set. Touch Me I’m Going to Scream 1 & 2 in the encore.
Yep. Usually one of either Steam Engine, Phone Went West, or Dondante as the big jam vehicle for the night. Wordless Chorus is a frequent encore break opener. Their setlists tend to follow a similar track to Pearl Jam. Some staples, a few newer tunes, some rotational spots.
I’m still trying to figure out the quote function on this forum. Sometimes when I hit “reply,” it automatically quotes, sometimes it doesn’t
But anyways…MMJ, what a fun and unique band. And yes, their live show fucking rocks. They create this huge wall of sound…it’s very compelling. Those songs mentioned (Steam Engine, Phone Went West and Dondante) are some heavy hitters. Jam or no jam, those songs are sweet.
I’ve got some very vivid memories of my introduction to MMJ. In the spring of 2006, I was 19 years old and we just endlessly played beer pong in my buddy’s garage. He had a great sound system at the time (for a kid) and we just rotated 5 CD’s - MMJ’s Z, The Last Waltz (2 discs) and Wilco’s Kicking Television (also 2 discs).
A very undermentioned song off of Z is Lay Low. A very undermentioned song off It Still Moves is Dancefloors.
They originally intended Waterfall to be a double album and have been talking about 'the waterfall followup/part 2" since the release of the original one, so not sure I’d necessarily write it off as a collection of b-sides.
