Is there any chance of a headling show in any of the cities you're hitting on this tour later in the year? Toronto, perhaps?

I'm really curious if there are going to be any more European dates added. There would be some free dates between Vienna and Germany.

I will be missing them in February and was excited to see a May date, until I realized I will be in Ohio driving back from a Who's Live Anyway performance with my mom and sister. Maybe in the fall.....

Are there going to be more US tour dates?

Don't mind me, I'm just kinda heartbroken otherwise -- it's weird to see such a lack of west coast shows. No Phoenix/Tucson? I've been waiting so patiently. D:

Jonathan has confirmed (I think one page back EDIT: here) that there will be west coast headlining shows later this year. Look at it this way: with a handful of exceptions, us Easterners only get 45 minute sets all spring. I think full sets are worth the wait.

... though it's easy for me to say with two short sets under my belt for the year :D (sorry)

Oh, yeah -- that's quite true. Very short! I had a mild period of panic, though: sort of a What did we do now? thing.



Now to see if they can get into the Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix (if they make it to town); I saw Matthew Good there last night and the sound set-up is absolutely flawless -- seriously, stereo-quality clarity. Not that I wouldn't go see them in a converted outhouse if that was the deal, but god, the Crescent would really do them justice.

I'm happy that there's a Pittsburgh show now. And I'm actually happy that Shearwater is the opening act, since that means I can leave early. I've skipped a few shows recently because the band I wanted to see wouldn't start playing until after I normally go to sleep. Although I would make an exception for Shearwater if they did headline.

Just got back from the Toronto show (we bailed on SVH). Still would have liked a headlining slot, but this was a great show. The setlist was something pretty close to this:

The Snow Leopard
Animal Life
Castaways
Dread Sovereign
You As You Were
Insolence
Rooks
Immaculate
Run The Banner Down
Pushing The River
Breaking The Yearlings
Star Of The Age

The new band was fantastic. Opening with The Snow Leopard was a nice surprise (I was worried they'd skip it). Insolence and Pushing The River were particualarly awesome and even Immaculate, which I don't love on the album, was really good.

Here's hoping they come back soon!

Toronto show was killer....Animal Life and Insolence were the highlights for me.

Not sure what the heck Sharon Van Etten was doing on stage half the time though...

Montreal setlist similar to Toronto, without Snow Leopard. :(

Animal Life
Castaways
Dread Sovereign
You As You Were
Insolence
Rooks
Immaculate
Run The Banner Down
Pushing The River
Breaking The Yearlings
Star Of The Age

The band seemed on point, though the bearded guitarist/keyboardist was the only one who I found particularly interesting to watch. Possibly because he looks like the older brother of professional wrestler CM Punk - same facial expressions and everything! Most of the new material sounded good live, though it got uncomfortably loud at points. I was standing by the sound booth too, so I can only imagine how things were nearer to the stage. The turnout was the best I've ever seen for a Shearwater show; I guess I was wrong about SVE being less popular. It was nice to see a big crowd for a change, though I think I was the only one who moved an inch throughout the Shearwater set.

The new Shearwater is definitely a rock act, with a lot less extra instrumentation than the old version. This worked fine for most of the new songs, but Castaways lost some appeal when it was rocked up pretty much from the outset. One of the things I love about a lot of Shearwater songs is how they build up to a crescendo, and when you go straight to crescendo from the outset that vibe is lost. Anyway, fun little set and I enjoyed seeing new songs live.
