WHAT. A. SHOW.

If I could have made it to any of the T5 shows (which I can't) it would have been TFF so I was so happy they played a bunch of tunes from that on Friday. They Ran had an incredible outro which some wailing falsetto. I've never been much of a Butch Cassidy fan, but this live version made me appreciate it so much more (the sounds Tommy was getting out of his bass were incredible). I was really hoping for a Dondante and it was great to hear this song after a few shows without it.

The encore was a thing of perfection for me, but hell the whole show was perfect! Phone Went West is a great song to "end" the show on before a rippin' One Big Holiday. I was right in front of Carl and got blasted with confetti during OBH, a great touch.

There was a point during the encore when I realized how wonderful my life was as I stood holding my woman watching my favorite band in the world play the best setlist I've ever seen.

LONG LIVE THE JACKET

That review refers to the show My Morning Jacket played Friday night in Portland, Maine. The show marked the reopening of Portland's State Theatre, courtesy of Bowery Presents who will also host the band at Terminal 5 in NYC for five nights starting tonight.
FIVE NIGHTS @ TERMINAL 5 IN NYC
10/18 - MMJ plays The Tennessee Fire, Dungen opens
10/19 - MMJ plays At Dawn - Hacienda opens
10/20 - night off, Carl Broemel plays Joe's Pub
10/21 - MMJ plays It Still Moves - Elvis Perkins in Dearland opens
10/22 - MMJ plays Z - Holly Miranda opens
10/23 - MMJ plays Evil Urges - Everest opens
According to Bowery Presents, tickets are still available for the first two nights, but you can always try your luck to see if they put more on sale for the other nights too.

You can also try your luck winning a pair of tickets. I have one pair to "Tennessee Fire" and one pair to the "Z" show. Details below.

Before Maine, like Gorillaz before them, My Morning Jacket played an hour set "Live on Letterman". Watch the whole thing below.

Between Maine and NYC, My Morning Jacket stopped by Levon Helm's Ramble (Saturday night) where they played a 10-song set in addition to jamming with Levon. The setlist from that show, the Maine show (with videos), the Letterman show (with video), and contest details, below....

i can't believe anyone actually takes that guy seriously.

LOL @ Mark Ronson being the show of the year.

Posted by Anonymous | October 18, 2010 4:16 PM

Mark Ronson 'show of the year' comments were obviously put on the original post by some people who don't like him to get a reaction. I was at the MHOW show. It was very well performed and a lot of fun. Of course it wasn't anywhere near being show of the year or extraordinary. If you see five shows a year, then maybe it could be.
