I went to two other shows, and this was amazing Nels Cline added another level to YLT. Bonnie Prince Billy and Kurt and Kristen were great as well. Hopefully tomorrow (tonight) will be as good.

Still no BLS in the setlist? Tonight's the night! (too bad the National are opening)

Best YLT show I've ever seen!

I may be hazy but didn't they play Tom Courtenay?

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2010 9:19 AM

do they ever play deeper into movies? that's like my favorite songs of theirs but i've been to two of these shows and the Brooklyn Bowl show, and also none of these setlists have it. bah humbug.

Bah hummusbug!

Pretty sure it was Serpentine after Big Day Coming, not House Fall Down.

9:19 isn't that hazy. They did play Tom Courtenay.

All I have to say to the 9:32 Scrooge is Meh-rry Christmas!

So amped for the BPB gig tonight at Town Hall. See all you suckers at BXL before the gig!

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2010 10:54 AM

9:25, I've seen them play Deeper but it's definitely not played very often (or often enough). Fingers crossed they dust it off for tonight. That and Blue Line Swinger and life would be a dream.

There were bedbugs at the show.

Nels Cline was a great addition. He made every song better. All the Glitter is Gone and all the slows songs were some of the best version I've ever heard.

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2010 11:39 AM

Serpentine was on the written setlist, but I trust Jesse until I hear the audio.

does anyone know the setlist for bpb last night? what can be expected tonight? any old bpb material, or is it all new cairo gang collaborative stuff?

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2010 2:25 PM

pretty sure he played mostly (only?) cairo gang stuff....and some song in hebrew.

Ok, so The National is opening. Guesses at who the comedian will be? Will David Cross return for old time's sake?

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2010 4:20 PM

I could go for David Cross as Ira's Rabbi, again.

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2010 5:06 PM

Or Amy Poehler as Ira's Jewish aunt

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2010 5:19 PM

Am I wrong that there haven't been any John comedians? Hodgman/Oliver/Mulaney? Cross and Poehler also seem like decent options. We'll know soon enough.

holy shit-bonnie prince billy was fucking terrible at town hall.

Posted by Anonymous | December 9, 2010 10:44 AM

BPB was stellar: Babblers was amazing!

Does anyone who the girl onstage with Bonnie was? I'm pretty sure it wasn't Cheyenne Mize
