"Got there early&saw a bit of Andrew Bird and checked out Shudder to Think because we were interested..then went off to get a good spot for She&Him..ahhhhh Zooey Deschanel&M. Ward were great&one of her backup singers sang a song of her own for a bit,apparently people thought lil wayne was in the audience(ummm it wasn't him)&yelled "we want weezy" during the performance. A lot of people were throwing the beach balls around&I really wanted to punch someone because it kept landing on my head(Kate counted 11 times that it hit her in the head)...I really wanted to deflate it&rip it to soon as everyone walked off stage people began to push because they wanted to be up front for Lil Wayne"

Interested is better than not interested. Unfortunately there is very little out there in terms of actual reviews of Shudder To Think's first official reunion performance that took place at the Baltimore Virgin Fest this past weekend. Spin has about a minute of video, the Baltimore Sun thinks Craig's name is Chris, and the Washington Post points out that they were playing to many "teenagers who were staking out prime spots for the Paramore/Taking Back back-to-back".

You can read about their last (unofficial) reunion shows that took place earlier this year. And you can check them out for yourself later this year. Tickets are still on sale for a show at Webster Hall. All tour dates HERE. More Baltimore pics below...

I watched the show and can give a partial/out of order setlist.

1.Red House
2.Shake Your Halo Down
3.Jade Dust Eyes
6.About Three Dreams
7.Love Catastrophe
8.Lies About The Sky
9.Earthquakes Come Home
10.Hit Liquor
11.X-French T-Shirt
12.Gang of $
13.9 Fingers On You

The first two songs are definitely right, and the last song played was "About Three Dreams." "X-French T-Shirt" was either second or third to last.
I think those were all the songs they played though. Nothing from 50,000 B.C. (unless you count Red House)
it was a great show, the band was into it, and the crowd was pretty warm to them considering that probably most people had no idea who they were.

let me guess...theyre reuniting 'for the music.'

well at least they're reuniting for the music that was actually good. I'd go see that set list.

Though the additional band members are a distraction, it was still a worthy performance. Adam Wade is joining them for the west coast tour. At least with Wade you're seeing 3/4 of epic Shudder.
