Psyche!  On schedule for a 2016 release LOL.

 

Predicted correctly!

 

Thanks to everyone on the board not voting that Eddie Vedder deserves an apology.  Cuz he don't.

 

I just saw announcement from my email (yes, i'm on Local H's mailing list).  

 

See SRC isn't evil.  Local H couldn't get this pressed by themselves.

I may be wrong on this, but from what I gather, Ryan Harding will still be involved & perhaps playing some Hey Killer songs, and/or other Local H catalog songs with Joe Daniels playing As Good As Dead.  Which would make sense, but it will be interesting to see if that's accurate and how they work it all out.

 

Also both Chicago shows now sold out.

I plan to go when they come to MN, but I can't imagine they will play three hours every night. That would be awesome though! What was the setlist?

Played a full set with Ryan on the drums made up of songs from Here Comes the Zoo and newer. Then played As Good As Dead in it's entirety with Joe on drums. Then played 4-5 songs from Pack Up The Cats with BOTH on drums.

If this tour comes anywhere near you, go. I saw them in Chicago last night and they played for almost 3 hours and it was incredible.

 

Oh, my, God.  They blew the roof off that fucking place.  Did you go both nights??  That was so fun, exceeded expectations by about 1,000%.  So glad I drove 7 hours to see it.  And even more happy that they're playing in my home town in June, so I'll be seeing it again.  

 

The show was so much more than just a set with Scott + Ryan, and a second set of Scott + Joe.  They bring out Gabe & another guy to sing some background vocals a handful of times.  Ryan picks up a bass guitar halfway through for a few songs.  And later on, as Degenerex said, both drummers rocking their kits at the same time.  Holy chalupa.  I attend live shows all the time.  My concert going days have been very consistent over the last 12 years, roughly.  Different genres, different style bands.  I'm sure it's been done before, but it was the first time I've seen 2 full drum sets being played simultaneously.

 

Let's not leave out Scott scaling the wall to climb up to the balcony, either.

 

I believe they will be doing the full nearly 3 hours every night, as well.

Just saw them last night. Talked to Scott after the show and asked him if we'd get a Pack Up The Cats press he said "2 years"! So looks like they're fixing to do a 20th anniversary treatment for that one, but he said he didn't think there would be a tour. 

 

Also the guy in front of me got the last of the solid red 180 As Good as Dead LPs so if you've been thinking about buying and haven't I would track one down sooner than later.
