Harvey Danger

Harvey Danger somehow...got John Hodgman to introduce them. It was hilarious...Once they came out on stage, they were incredible. They played for about 2 hours and 40 minutes, longer than I've ever seen any band play for before in my life. By the end, there wasn't really too much left that they hadn't played. It was really awesome and didn't get boring at all...even if we were all insanely tired by almost 2AM when we finally walked out.

For the encore, they came out and did a lot of Q&A and took requests. A bunch of them.

They sounded really on all night too, even towards the end of the set, they were still playing well and having a great time on stage. If you didn't make this show, you messed up, big time. Below is the full set list so that you can kick yourself for missing the show...[ihaveamessage]

The review above is from Harvey Danger's Farewell Tour show on August 8th at that Bell House. Valley Lodge (photographed below) and Jukebox the Ghost (not photographed) opened.

Harvey Danger's final, final show happens August 29th at The Crocodile in Seattle. More NYC pictures, some videos and that setlist are below...

160 minutes of Harvey Danger makes leprosy sound fun.

you've never seen anyone play past 2 hours and 40 minutes before? you need to get out to more shows, and to better shows

Anyone who never got beyond HD's first album is sorely missing out. Ditto for anyone who only healf-heartedly listened to it a couple times.

I drove up from Philly. A wonderful show, a wonderful band. After two phenomenal albums (their first two), don't understand why they didn't become as popular as REM - they're every bit as good. Very sorry to see them go but surely Sean will make a splash somewhere else.
