Wherein I take notes (on my ‘berry)

(edited slightly for format and content. Sue me)

LCD Soundsystem, Roseland Theatre, Portland, OR May 29th, 2010

Intro music "I'm not in love" 10cc. Best FU ever. I knew Murphy was a fan.

Us and Them (Better than TH Stop Making Sense tour? It’s really close. Nancy Whang moment - she's from Portland? Was her mom really in the theatre? Cool!)

Drunk Girls (Murphy: "those are the two fastest versions of Us and Them and Drunk Girls we've played in a long time")

Get Innocuous!

Yer City's a Sucker

Pow Pow!

Daft Punk is playing at my house (channeling Nirvana)

All I want (“St. Elmo's Fire” meets Morrissey, wherein I remember (in tears) running, stoned out of my mind, through Raleigh Park on an August night in 1984)

All My Friends (with I Zimbra as a reference) - un-fracking believable.

I Can Change (Murphy can really sing, if he chooses)

Tribulations (Mosh pit w 30 and 40 year olds. Cool. Sorta glad I chose the balcony. Moshing in Spanish boots and an Armani shirt not so good)

Yeah (think "swamp thing by the Cramps." Really, I only need a cover of "take me to the river" to die and go)


Someone Great (bawling – really!)

Loosing My Edge (the live Rock Snob's Version. I admit to shouting out the lyrics I know)

New York I Love You (more SPM, through the NY Dolls -- only much, much better.)

"Someone Great" always makes me want to cry.
