mewithoutYou are in the midst of playing their final two shows before their 20+ year career comes to an end in their hometown of Philly at The Fillmore. Last night (8/19) was the first one, and opener Kevin Devine came out to join them on acoustic guitar and backup vocals for two songs during their encore, "Allah, Allah, Allah" and "In A Sweater Poorly Knit," including a little extended jam that connected the two songs seamlessly. Kevin's done those songs with them before, so it's no surprise that they sounded super tight with them. Watch video of the appearance and check out the full setlist from last night below.

mewithoutYou's very last show is tonight (8/20) at The Fillmore with openers The Messthetics (ex-Fugazi) and David Eugene Edwards (Wovenhand). Will they have more surprises in store? Tickets are still available.

Yesterday, 32 DIY bands put out a tribute album to mewithoutYou. We also just included (A→B) Life in our list of the best emo & post-hardcore albums of 2002.
