is he playing Girlfriend in its entirety? I loved 100% fun and Blue Skies! Girlfriend was solid too. Will go if he is playing that album! Sunshine Lies was so so and the last tour was meh but when he tours behind his older albums the spark is back!

what's he weigh these days? i'll only go if he's over 3 bills

Posted by Anonymous | August 24, 2011 4:07 PM

I'll only go if he pulls an Iggy (OD'ing on stage during the first note of the set) or a Cat Power (throwing a drunken tantrum and storming off stage)

his album In Reverse from a few years ago was pretty excellent as well. I saw in early 2000s at Irving Plaza and he was great.
