Thanks for posting the setlist - there were way too many songs for me to keep track of this time.
Overall, another brilliant show from Sloan. This is the 8th time we've seen them and the 5th at the Black Cat, which seems to keep improving. We were able to get close to the stage on Patrick's side. There were about 200 die hard fans in attendance. Small Sins were the opening band from Toronto and I found them pretty boring, but certainly not the worst opener Sloan has had (in fact maybe one of the better ones, sadly enough).
We always see one or more members of Sloan watching the opening band before the show, although this time we didn't-- but even better, we saw Patrick walking down 14th Street before the show, maybe coming from Saint Ex restaurant-?
The set was pretty heavy with the "Never Hear the End of It" songs, which made me appreciate the new material more than ever. I think most if not all of Andrew's songs were new ones and in both of his sets, he played guitar for one of Patrick's songs as well. They had a touring keyboardist this time who was good- he also sang backup and even got behind the drums during the encore.
The encore was classic as Patrick and Chris came out and took requests before Andrew and Jay came out. Patrick admitted he forgot Sugartune, but Chris sang some of it and they winged it a bit. They also did a bit of the Other Man and Spirit of Radio, but refused Deeper than Beauty because Patrick didn't know the guitar part and felt it was too much trouble to get behind the drums (I'm too drunk, he claimed).
After the show, Chris stayed out and talked with the crowd. The band was clearly more comfortable than ever and really looked like they were having a good time. Awesome show as always - come back soon please!
A great show played to a few dedicated fans, which is as it should be. The DC punk homage, with Chris on drums, was brilliant & must appreciated -- it really made my night. The show did include lots of new material, in promotion of the album, but old favorites made plenty of appearances, too. I was especially glad to see everyone in the band smiling & having a good time. Thanks again for such a wonderful night. Come back soon, DC loves you!
Wow, nice to hear Sloan kicking ass out on tour in the States. Nice photo Johnny, that would make a nice cd/album cover. I wonder if Jay would agree?
This was my 4th Sloan show, but my first in DC (even though I've lived here for 4 years!). It was fun to rock out; liked that they played lots from the new album -- I think it's one their better ones. Beefcheeks.
