REVIEW: David Bazan @ House Show (Eugene, OR – 9/29/11)

30th Sep 11 (Fri) Leave a comment Go to comments

Wave 2 of the David Bazan 2011 Living Room tour… I missed the last swipe through in Corvallis, but was destined to see him in my home town again.  It was held at the same house from 2009 (that review here).  Thank you so much to the super great hosts!

No opener this time.  David kicked into it just after 8pm with the lead off track to his new album, Strange Negotiations.  It’s a great record, and rumor has it that he’s working on a new one already – but there was no mention of that last night…

Setlist: ~80 mins

  • Wolves at the Door
  • Cold Beer and Cigarettes
  • June 18, 1976 (Pedro the Lion)
  • Hard to Be
  • Q&A 1
  • Foregone Conclusions (Pedro the Lion)
  • Shit Talker (Headphones)
  • Virginia
  • Q&A 2 on old blues guitarists
  • Fewer Broken Pieces
  • Slow and Steady Wins the Race (Pedro the Lion)
  • Q&A 3
  • Transcontinental (Pedro the Lion)
  • Q&A 4
  • Packt Like Sardines In A Crushd Tin Box (Radiohead cover for Elliott Smith)
  • Won’t Let Go
  • Curse Your Branches
  • Q&A 5
  • Strange Negotiations
  • No Encore

David’s playing Sam Bond’s Garage in about 2 1/2 months with a full band (Dec 14th for those wanting to know); so Eugene will be lucky to see his beardy face grace our presence once again.

The Appropriate Linkage:

Check out the now-almost-all-done tour dates below.  Woodinville, Washington tonight – then he’s back to his own bed until the band tour hits in the late Fall…

Next show for me… Melt Banana at WOW Hall on 10/1.
