Bandega: What venue do you consider to be your "home", where you feel most comfortable, with the crowd and the place itself?

Eric Johnson of Fruit Bats & The Shins: The shortlist would be Schubas, Hideout and Empty Bottle in Chicago, Mercury Lounge in New York, Modified in Phoenix, Fernwood in Big Sur, and Opolis in Norman, Oklahoma.

The previously announced NJ & NYC Shins shows are the last two dates on a 14-date May tour. Tickets for the May 18th Terminal 5 show are currently on Am Ex Presale, and go on regular sale Friday at noon.

The Shins were nominated for the "Best Alternative Music Album" Grammy for their 2007 Sub Pop album Wincing the Night Away. Muppets interviewed them backstage at the 2008 event. That video and all dates below...

I know nobody really cares, but no good bands come to omaha. It's really starting to piss me off

Dear Mike,

Does anyone know if the setlist for the May 18 show the Shins played yesterday at Terminal 5 is available? I came late to the concert, and I'd like to know what I missed.

Incidentally, it was awesome that they covered the Beta Band's "Dry the Rain". I thought they stretched out "Those to Come" for too long (or maybe it segued into a song I wasn't familiar with). That song just doesn't seem like it lends itself to a jam session. Anyway, if anyone knows where the setlist is posted, please let me know.
