They did Trucker's Atlas, which can be well over 20 minutes. It's awesome and so weird that they played it, since they haven't done so since 2001.

No "Everybody Hurts"??

Ya, I was pretty choked for the setlist at the Vancouver show... they still put on a great performance...but the setlist really lacked some key songs. They added about 2 or 3 songs that werent on the setlist, which was cool... but no Orange Crush, Everybody Hurts, Imitation Of Life, Nightswimming.... still worth seeing though

They don't play Nightswimming that often. That setlist was rad. Please look at "Ignoreland" and "Sweetness Follows" for more details.

Bah! REM have such a deep song book they could play 2 hours of just hits and STILL miss a number of key songs. Plus you can't beat the opening acts...should be a legendary show at the Rocks for me...

Modest Mouse were much better at Lollapalooza last year, than the show I just saw... I guess the audience being pretty weak during them is another factor...at Lolla everyone was going nuts for Modest Mouse. REM had a song with 3 acoustic guitars and 1 piano...and it just sounded amazing... Ill have to download the songs from the setlist that I dont know and figure out which one it is.

That's a killer set. They've played Dramamine both times I've seen them, and 3rd Planet, which was awesome, but the last time was too heavily drawn from WWD (Only 3 songs from older albums)

Modest Mouse's Sasquatch set

This setlist is completely right, EXCEPT that they didn't play Dance Hall. I can garuntee you that. But seriously, I couldn't believe it when they started playing Truckers Atlas, it only lasted about 8 minutes... but Im guessing they had to cut it short cuz they started a few minutes late. It sounded great though. Also Doin' The Cockroach was badass.
I am so happy with Modest Mouse at Sasquatch. It was as amazing as when I saw them in Vancouver in 2005 though. They played Cowboy Dan at that show and my mind melted. But the Sasquatch setlist sure as hell beats the Vancouver setlist.

Also, the crowd went NUTS when they opened the encore with Orange Crush.

He was a great show at the Bowl. The people behind me were making me crazy. A huge group of drunkards constantly complaining they didn't know enough songs and they felt that R.E.M. was losing the crowd. And there were 8 of them all drunk and complaining. They were only excited during "Losing my religion" and "The one I love". I was pretty annoyed, they were loud.

If I may get on a tangent. Park N Ride sucks! I tried it because everyone was telling me how great it was.

First of all, I signed up for the 5:30 PM park n ride. The bus was late so he didn't pick us up until 6 Pm so I missed a good portion of "The National". Secondly the driver didn't know how to get to the bowl. He almost made a wrong turn 3 times. When we got there the driver didn't know what to do and he just froze up and didn't know what to say so of course Hollywood Bowl security tried to kick the bus out or stop it many times. I had to keep getting out and talking to Hollywood Bowl security so they knew we were the Park N Ride and so he could go to the drop off point. I had to talk with security 4 times. Also, he took the 405 to the 101 to get to the Bowl. Who the hell takes the freeway in the middle of rush hour when we are already strapped for time?

The way back wasn't much better. The new driver couldn't stay in his lane and he kept swerving around the freeway. At one point he almost crashed into a semi. I saw my life flash in front of his eyes. I kept trying to tell him but he wouldn't turn his headlights on. And when he was going back to LA he almost took the 405 North instead of South and I had to correct him and he almost crashed into the divider going back to the correct direction.

so all in all, Park N Ride is a complete pile of shit.

They were only excited during "Losing my religion" and "The one I love". I was pretty annoyed, they were loud.

Seriously, I don't know what it is, but the Bowl shows always bring out the worst of LA. I went to the Police and REM 2 of the last 3 nights, and the place is just overrun by giant asses. Last night was by far the worst, though. We had this super annoying drunk girl one row behind us, and I am being nice by calling her heinous. Anyway, she spent the entire time being loud and obnoxious because she thought she was being cute and getting a positive response from the other people in the section. She wasn't. She would yell to the people around her throughout the show, and she also screamed "Crazy" in between every song (and sometimes during other songs). We also had a guy sitting directly next to us who spent literally the entire show fake drumming, even utilizing the imaginary kick bass. So the seats were rocked the entire time by this tool. To make matters worse, he was egging on the heinous girl behind us. You also had the standard Hollywood Bowl people who are there to socialize and talk about cheese and wine instead of listening to the show. We at least were able to rip on people, which provided us entertainment.

As for the show, I thought they sounded great (after they turned up the volume). The setlist did not do much for me, though. I am a casual REM fan who is a fan of a particular time period of their stuff, so I would have preferred to hear more off their 1989-1998 era CD's. I wasn't expecting it, so I wasn't disappointed. I was really gunning for Orange Crush, though. Too bad they decided to not play it even though it was listed on the setlist.


how were modest mouse?
We got there late due to dinner and traffic, so we only caught a few of their songs. I am not a fan by any means, but I actually liked what I heard. The Bowl's sound was turned down way low (and was not corrected until halfway through REM), so they were done a little bit of a disservice.

As for the show, I thought they sounded great (after they turned up the volume).

At what point did they turn up the sound? I was sitting in Section M1, and I could talk to my wife without raising my voice which of course meant I could also hear everyone around me talking. We moved after a few songs and found a place were we could smoke and still watch, so I couldn't tell if they had turned the volume up.

It better be loud enough Saturday for The Cure!!!

At what point did they turn up the sound? I was sitting in Section M1, and I could talk to my wife without raising my voice which of course meant I could also hear everyone around me talking. We moved after a few songs and found a place were we could smoke and still watch, so I couldn't tell if they had turned the volume up.

It better be loud enough Saturday for The Cure!!!

I want to say that it really started getting turned up after Michael asked if the crowd could hear him and everyone in the back shouted no. He said something about a problem in the Hollywood Bowl in response. Within a couple of songs, it was at a higher level (Accelerate is when I first started to hear a difference).

And I don't know, Gabe. I was in L1 and I had a very hard time hearing MM over the people around me.

Atlanta has some of the most hardcore R.E.M. fans (DUH, Stipe was probably born a few blocks away from that amphitheater). The 2003 REM show in Atlanta was one of the best shows I've been to in my life. Thats why I am going although it will be like > 400 miles of driving for me 1 way. *I'm probably one of those few hardcore REM fans living in FL lol*

Edit: Oh by the way, I saw Michael Stipe at that amphitheater after the Radiohead show few weeks ago.

exactly what i am wondering...

at all the REM shows people saw how long did The National play (and did they play at all, I haven't heard any mention of them)? Apparently the show tonight starts at 6, but I can't get there until around 6:30, am I going to be missing The National or some of Modest Mouse?

Wow. The show at the Greek last night was awesome. Got there with plenty of time to see the entirety of every set. It was my first time at the Greek and the only thing I can knock are the bathroom lines, other than that, place was great. I had been following this thread leading up to the event trying to get a feel for what R.E.M. might play. Seems like a lot of people WHO DIDN'T GO TO THE SHOWS were complaining about setlists. I'll be the first to admit that there were quite a few songs that were played last night that I wasn't familiar with, but none of that mattered. Those guys are f*cking pros, they are showmen. Stipe was ON last night. They rocked like they just sipped from the fountain of youth. I could not have asked for a better show. Sure, some songs I really like of theirs weren't played, but the 27 that were kicked ass. And we got Orange Crush, mega-phone to the mic and all. Thank you R.E.M., Modest Mouse and the National for a wonderful evening.

unitedwestand
06-01-2008, 03:11 PM
I thought the concert was alright, but not one of the greatest ever.
I missed the national! PISSED! But hopefully well see them @ lolla this year...
The concert was only alright because of the atmosphere-where I was sitting there was nobody but old people who had no idea who Modest Mouse were.
Modest Mouse's performance was only sub par I thought.
They seemed like they would be an amazing band live, and they were, but they also seemed a bit tired I thought.
Musically, they were great-but their was no connection with the crowd, not even a word, which only improved the bad atmosphere of the concert.
However, it changed a bit when R.E.M. came on stage.
R.E.M. were excellent, despite not playing It's the End of the World or Nightswimmer, but I guess they rarely play those songs?
Orange Crush sounded excellent, as well as Ignoreland.
And yes, Stripe was on last night. His voice sounded great and fantastic, and he constantly made jokes through out the entire concert.
Overall, it was a good concert, but it could have been a lot better.

I've wanted to see R.E.M. for years and they did not disappoint - it was . . . an awesome evening. I brought my 17 yr old daughter and 15 yr old son and they loved the music and appreciated the experience of R.E.M. magic. And the Peter Buck Kick.

bmack86
06-01-2008, 05:21 PM
So I'm now back from Berkeley. What a fantastic night. The National were great, the sound was perfect for them and they were very intense. Modest Mouse played a really cool set that I enjoyed thoroughly, and I was so damn excited that they played Wild Pack of Family Dogs, complete with Pump Organ. Spitting Venom is a fantastic closer, and the songs from Lonesome Crowded West were great. Andrew sat with my friend and I for almost all of R.E.M.'s set, and it was killer. The sound was spot on, the band had tons of energy and everything seemed to click. They played Driver 8, a song each from Chronic Town, Murmur and Reckoning The One I Love, Orange Crush, almost all of the new album, Find the River, Ignoreland. There were probably 40 songs I would have loved to hear that they didn't play, but that's alright because they sounded so fantastic that I could forgive, and what they did play sounded fantastic.

I don't really know that much of REM stuff, and I really enjoyed their set. My girlfriend, who didn't care for REM at all before Sasquatch, said REM was one of her favourite of the weekend.
Also, the Accelerate material fits right in with their old stuff. I think my favorite song from Accelerate live is either Living Well is the Best Revenge or Horse In Water.

wow, the hollywood show must have been really rough...

Rant from Scott Perry...

"(I already know I'm gonna catch hell for saying this, but I say it only because I care. F'reals.)

Dear Peter Buck, Mike Mills, and Michael Stipe,

I like your band. A lot. I am not a superfan, I do not own any European 7”s, I am not the first in line whenever you put out a new release, and I have never owned a t-shirt emblazoned with R.E.M.’s logo. But y’all are part of my DNA – your IRS releases filled the school bus every morning; part of our rite of passage as weirdo teenagers growing up in Alabama was crossing the state line and making the pilgrimage to Howard Finster’s and Athens. The early Warner Bros releases were inescapable during my college years (that’s a good thing), and I think your latest release is without a doubt one of your finest in years.

But your show the other night at the Hollywood Bowl left me cold. The performance was lively, spirited, heartfelt, and entertaining, but the song selection was not so hot. I get it, you have a new release to promote, and you want your fans to like the new stuff as much as you do.

You also want to offer highlights from 25 years of playing together as a band. But when you have 15,000 people paying anywhere from $50 to $150 to see you play (that's almost up to $500 a couple when you factor babysitter, parking, booze, food, and a t-shirt!), you gotta give ‘em what they want. Otherwise, you’re gonna turn off a whole cycle of fans who may never come back to see you play again. I’m not talking about playing it safe and doing just the hits, but you have to balance the new stuff with the favorites – it’s what they used to call in radio programming “wrapping the pill in the bacon.”

You mentioned something onstage about a “pushback” from the crowd? You heard correctly, sirs. I don’t know what was worse – people yelling “LOUDER! LOUDER!” and “OLD STUFF! OLD STUFF!,” or the deafening silence in between some of the lesser-known tracks.

Have someone from your camp walk in the audience to gauge live reaction. Have someone on the inside read every blog post every day and have the guts to tell you the good news & the bad, in order to shape your set list into the best it can be. Feel free to call an audible and mix up the songs if you feel like you’re not getting a decent reaction. Because unlike a recorded album, a live show is a LIVING, BREATHING entity that can change and flow with the audience, if you let it.

From where you were standing, it may have sounded like everyone was cheering for every song. But from where I sat (second row behind the box seats, not bad for walking up last minute), I was surrounded by people sitting quietly, squirming, begging, HOPING that the next song is one they know and love. In a town on a night when we had the “Lost” finale, the Lakers playoffs, any number of club shows, dinners, bars, or even just sitting home with the kids and playing Guitar Hero, 15,000 Los Angeles residents chose to spend their night with you. And it didn’t look like anyone beyond the box seats was having much fun.

If I may be so bold, may I make the following suggestions?

1) Limit the number of live Accelerate tracks to 5 per night, max – the album is great, but your audience doesn’t go out and buy your album and learn all the words within the first week anymore. They got kids, they got jobs, they got OLD. Lure them in with the new stuff, but wrap it in a warm blanket of old favorites.

2) Can we pretend the past 10 years never existed? I know, I can hear y'all right now: "Hey look -- some armchair quarterback is pissing on our past decade of work! How many CDs has *this* a-hole ever sold?" Hi-Fi, Up, In Time, Around the Sun and Reveal never sold very well, and even though you may be proud of those releases, they don't resonate with your fans as much.

Think about it like this -- 90% of the people at the show have never heard these albums, so it's not likely they'll be dancing and singing along. In fact, if most of your fans haven't bought one of your albums since Automatic or Monster (as suggested by this chart), then there were 5-song stretches (see setlist below) where some folks in the audience didn't recognize a single song!

3) Playing some of your biggest tracks from Automatic for the People and Out of Time is an obvious, wise decision, but don’t be afraid to add a few more tracks from the IRS years. Your fans had their first kiss, their first beer, their first smoke, their first breakup to stuff like "So. Central Rain," "Driver 8," "Radio Free Europe," "Superman," "Nightswimming" – transport them away from modern worries (believe me, your fans KNOW our President is a dick) and remind them why they liked you to begin with. Starting off with "Pretty Persuasion" was such a promising tease for what turned into a letdown of a show.

Even your boy Bertis was quoted in that WSJ article linked above about regaining your audience: "Do we want to break through in the States again? Yes." A lot of people really like the new album because it sounds like the old stuff. So what should you do to bring those folks back on board for your live shows? Play more of the old stuff!

4) Keep rockin’. In no way am I implying that you dumb down the show to pander to the masses with the biggest hits -- just mix it up with stuff that people actually KNOW and LIKE. If I DJ’d a party with stuff that only I know and like, people would scatter within four songs. The audience WANTS to join you on your journey, but you gotta give a little more back in exchange for the time and money they are giving you.

5) And if you want to do a bunch of lesser-known songs for the most hardcore fans, then treat them to fanclub-only theater shows, with the audience knowing such in advance.

And, oh yeah -- 6) Take Helio Sequence and Republic Tigers with you on the road next time -- they might not help sell as many tickets as The National and Modest Mouse, but at least you'd be giving a leg up to two fantastic bands.

You still have 10 more dates on this tour. Have fun!

Your pal,

Scott "

what a wanker. he starts off like he put so much effort to make that show, then a couple paragraphs in owns up to showing up last minute to get tickets. the reviewer also writes that as if in the 25+ year REM has been doing live show they have never had to wrestle with the problem of which songs to play. like I wrote in my review of night one at the Greek in Berkeley, I didn't know quite a few songs that were played, but they sounded damn good and looked genuinely enthused to be playing those songs. Can't knock ANY band for that. And the price of the ticket was well worth it if you consider that less than 12 months ago Modest Mouse was doing their headlining tour and the National hasn't really done a big venue tour of their own, so the smaller shows they have played sell out quick and you end up paying $50 to see just them alone. That reviewer just needs to suck it up. When I leave a show I only ask myself one question... was I entertained? Saturday night at the Greek the answer was HELL YEAH!!

I agree on both ends here. Stipe is the man. I was surprisingly unimpressed with Modest Mouse, they did not look like they wanted to be there at all.

The lights for REM were great too, which I didn't expect.

Dear REM,
Please be a greatest hits machine and don't enjoy yourself every night because you have to keep playing the same setlist you've been playing since the Monster tour 14 years ago. The old people who like you want this because they have babies and lead depressing lives.

bmack, I wish I'd have known you were at the Berkeley show, I had a ticket and opted not to go because nobody else was attending. Also, Modest Mouse always plays Trucker's Atlas.

I was completely unimpressed by Modest Mouse.

I need to see me some more national. I've been obsessed with them lately and I cannot stop. It's insane how awesome The National are. I think I even started a dumb fuck poll putting MGMT vs the National and I chose MGMT. I was high at the time. Lots of drugs apparently. The National are fucking amazing! That set at Sasquatch is what did me in. Unfuckingreal.

Oh, to the douche that wrote that REM letter. Fucking awful. He should take himself out back and shoot himself.

Anyone see REM on ACL this past weekend? I loved it. This REM album is the greatest thing since Automatic. Fucking rock. I want to keep hearing Ignoreland live as well. This band is so relevant and I never EVER thought I would be saying that again let alone in 2008. Keep up the good work Stipe. You are a fucking pro.

I thought Bryan said they havent played it since 2001? With that being said, I enjoyed White Trash more than Trucker Atlas, it sounded fucking brilliant. Doin' The Cockroach was fun too.

To keep everyone happy you have to play for 3 hours like The Cure.

Even then, I heard a couple of young girls complaining The Cure set list was too poppy. urrhhgg

Were these girls possibly wearing capes? I swear, the Cure has some of the weirdest fans around.
