Yeah I thought the little touch of booing when they didn't re-emerge after the first encore was a bit off-colour.. An hour and twenty minutes isn't Springsteen proportions but surely it's long enough? They got through a lot of stuff, considering the concise song lengths. Anyway, I enjoyed the gig a lot. The ongoing back-and-forth silly comments between the band members and the touch of looseness to proceedings gave it kind of a fun, relaxed feel.. and they sounded sharp, loud and fuzzy but punchy.
couldn't agree more, they packed a lot into the time, not a dull moment, I think people started booing when the roadies/techs came out to turn off the amps and remove the mikes, which made it clear they weren't coming back on, but still, totally uncalled for. The between band comments were priceless "we got her on craigslist, and a lawnmower"
The quiet song where the two sisters sang into the same mic (I don't know most of the song titles) was lovely.
Thats from the forthcoming album, it's called "here no more", for those that missed the gig, theres a performance of it at the end of this interview clip:
