Right. The setlist I posted was for the Fonda in 2007.
Really? That's what I thought at first, but that's a ton of MPP songs, they really played that many back in '07? Strange.
That would have been after Strawberry Jam, so it makes sense. I definitely saw them play Peacebone without Deakin though.
Oh and when I was doing Coachella research in 2008 and first got into them, of course I found out they play new stuff live. There were plenty of recordings out there with those songs. I knew them all and was one of very few singing along.
My favorite set from Animal Collective was their most recent at Coachella. Last week was my 7-9th times seeing them, I was looking forward to all the new material. The first 6 times seeing them was from Coachella 08 to ATP 09, so I saw all of the MPP stuff plenty. Excluding Bluish because I don't think that was ever played live, I've seen every song from MPP except Taste, most multiple times. Maybe it was partially the drugs, but every song was incredible. I really dug how noisy it was and everything they did to the old songs. Plus the visuals. Ridiculous. I need a full good quality recording of this! My next favorite set was Big Sur.
Comfy in Nautica
Who Could Win A Rabbit
What Would I Want? Sky
No More Runnin'

dont know if this was posted already and I'm too lazy to check but here is a great interview of Black Dice going over how they made the live visuals for Coachella
You can hear/download the set here
the Avey Tare show ruled. the new stuff sounds great. have i posted this before? either way, it's a good reminder of how far these guys have come. such an extraordinary career already:
2003 i believe.
Oakland show was so good. Song for Jerome and Sometimes both sound great.
Is Drawlings his sister? she had one song that I really enjoyed (something about being stranded at sea) but the rest seemed a little undeveloped.
I like that he is exploring the darker side of MPP with his solo work. I like some of it a lot better than MPP.
Laughing Hieroglyphic absolutely floored me. Yes, Drawlings is his sister.
Laughing Hieroglyphic going into the new song he played last was awesome.
Great show. The two "old songs" were great (I loved how he diced up Lucky 1) and the new shit has got be laid down at some point. Must have.
I'm really glad Dave finally gave in to touring. It's a shame the Down Below stuff was so personal, on the one hand. Hopefully more of it will be played at some point. Scratch that. We probably just heard the only two songs that he'll ever play from that album.....ever.

I thought the show was awful, well not awful but mediocre for how good that album is. The opener is a pompous dick who can go fuck himself though.
Here's some great-quality footage of him playing LH at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. One word: goosebumps.
9/22 The Mekons @ Pappy & Harriet's
I liked the last album a lot, but I was somewhat worried that with the success of MPP that the band would continue down that road. And I'm pretty fucking ecstatic to report that that is not true. The two songs from this Record Store Day EP are in no way polished or focused or pop leaning, and are more reminiscent of their pre-Sung Tongs days if anything.
Is that the actual direction they are going though? I thought this EP was just a "collage" of the random loops made as background music for their Guggenheim exhibit
well the newer material with Deacon that they played last year didn't sound anything like MPP so personally I'm expecting a lot of weird from them in the future.
Did you a get copy, Chris? Or listen by other means? Didn't see it at my local record store, wanted to pick that up.
presale tickets for their Hollywood Bowl show go on sale tomorrow, does anyone have an idea of how much tickets for the pool will be?
$150. Btw, who says you'll be able to grab pool?
$150? eff that, i won't try then.
You could get the cheap seats for $12...
