So, it was my birthday show, and it ruled.
Mad people came out to support, which obviously felt really good, and Prayers for Atheists were down from Providence on the first night of their tour.
PFA jumped shit off at like nine thirty, and fucking killed it. I think that most people's experience with this band is not knowing what to really expect from them -- is it punk? Is it rap? I think the answer is it's a little bit of everything. And not in a shitty, "switching back and forth between influences on different songs" type of way. PFA's music makes perfect organic sense.
Here they are performing "Men in Control"
So PFA jumped shit off proper, and the spot was packed when we took the stage.
Our set went like this:
1. Blackout, baby (first time we performed it ever -- it's on "Smash Smash Bang")
2. Risk You Run
3. Shades Off w/ Jared Paul
4. Turn the Lights Out
5. Funk Terrorist
6. Don't Sleep
7. Thriller vs. Two Rows of Teeth
8. Planes Down
All in all, it was a wonderful birthday show. Much love to everyone who came out and to PFA. Good luck on your tour, y'all.
