They play some faster, yes. Not all. They don't ramp the speed up and down inconsistently inside each song though. Last night was a lot fun, and Tegan and Sara surprised big time. Was 4 or 5 rows of people back dead center and with Pat's drum kit being so close to the front of the stage it was totally like seeing them in a small little club during their songs but when they would finish one I was pulled back into the giant room that is Staples Center. All of the songs on El Camino are a ton of fun but I wish they would leave Brothers alone a bit more than they do. When its just the two of them on stage is still the highlight of their shows, each of the three times I've seen them. Great crowd on the floor and I really like how Staples' security had everyone sit down while we waited before the opener. Kept a lot of breathing room once we got up.
