New York Show

Recommended Posts

Is anyone else besides me coming to the New York show next week. I'm driving from York, PA for the show...I try to catch any MG show I can...this is number 3 for me. Anyone else traveling far for this one?

 

Has anyone ever been to the pub before? Any good restaurants around anyone would recommend?

betcha wish he was playing the strand huh!?!?!

 

I was thinking it about it..if it wasn't such a hassle to drive/park in the city i'd go..but it is. Have fun!!! The place looks small so it should be a great time.

I will be there. I'm from Queens originally so I've been to all his NYC shows since 2008. I almost forgot it was coming up this week. I already have my ticket though.

 

I don't eat a lot down in that area of the city, but if you're feeling limber you could trek to St. Mark's Place or Bleecker Street. There's plenty of places on those two strips.

 

Also just a couple of stops away south on the 6 train is La Esquina on Kenmare Street. It's one of my favorite restaurants in the city. If you like Mexican food you can't go wrong.

Cool. How accessible are subways to mid-town? Is parking cheaper in the south end?

To the best of my recollection:

 

Truffle Pigs

Born Losers

Strange Days

While We Were Hunting Rabbits

Metal Airplanes

Load Me Up

Suburbia

Tripoli

How It Goes

Alert Status Red

Apparitions

 

Advertising On Police Cars

Sort of a Protest Song

Generation X-Wing

Unknown New Song

 

 

Some of the ordering might be off. This was a great show, and I heard 2 songs that I never heard live before...those being Truffle Pigs and Sort of a Protest Song. Actually he said that was one of only like 2 or 3 times he has actually played Truffle Pigs live, so that was awesome. I actually recorded the whole show on my Zoom 3 mic so I have to go through and edit the songs into individual tracks. The show was over 2 hours and I'm pretty sure 45 minutes of that was banter, so I'm probably gonna just stick the banter somewhere for a rainy day...the songs take priority :P

 

Also a funny thing that happened...I walked into the venue and held the door extra long for this guy who was coming in. I was standing in the lobby waiting and so was everyone else, but we were kinda facing each other at a distance, me and this guy, and I made eye contact and just looked away. Then they lined everyone up and I ended up behind him, then we showed our tickets...and we had tickets right next to each other near the stage. So we go and sit down and after about 10 seconds he says, "You know, I was wondering what the odds were that I was gonna sit next to this guy." and I said, "I thought the EXACT same thing!" Hilarious.

 

Anyway like I said awesome show, one of the better ones I've seen. The venue was awesome, a lot different than all the general admission places. I think it works well with an acoustic performance though.

looks like a good to great set list. Wish it wasn't such a PITA to get to nyc and back.

 

Curious, did he mention why he played the one off show? I was bummed when he didn't make a little tour out of it..

No mention whatsoever. I did manage to find out from a reliable source that MG is doing a full band US tour this fall. When I inquired if its going to be extensive or just a few shows, I was told it will be one of his biggest pushes into the US. I was told NYC is a definite stop.

Cool, a new song that isn't either of the new singles? How did it sound?

 

Edit: Oh sweet, I guess I'll be able to hear for myself soon.

Hey everyone.

 

So here's the link to download my Bootleg from the NYC show at Joe's Pub on May 14th. http://www.khakain.c...ub(5_14_13).zip

 

I edited out pretty much all of the banter, save for a couple of moments right before songs. You might hear Lance tuning guitars on some tracks, or the rumbling of the subway underneath the venue from time to time. Let me know what you think. Enjoy.

You're welcome!

 

Doesn't look like a lot of people are clicking through on this thread. I hope everyone downloads it! The performances are really good...plus Truffle Pigs!

I just downloaded it, will try and listen to it soon. Thanks a bunch Gomo, it's mighty white of ya! There's some real nice choices in there. Great to see Truffle Pigs being played, it's one of my favourites. Is this full band?

No it is Acoustic, but I think it's one of only a handful of performances of Truffle Pigs ever. I think actually during the show he said he's only played it one other time.

I can only recall Truffle Pigs being on a set once - first acoustic tour, Edmonton. I have that bootleg somewhere.
