seems like you've been into ptm a while. theyve been my fave band and live show since 2006 (when church mouth came out). im really disappointed in evil friends, theres only a couple songs i like enough not to skip. ive seen them live twice since it came out and they dont play any songs off of waiter or church mouth anymore, for the first time ever (ive seen them 10+ times) and it really, really bum s me out. do you think they never will from here on out? they also just dont jam out anymore an
Personally I wasn’t the biggest fan of Evil Friends either. But you can’t turn down a chance to work with Danger Mouse. The guys are better musicians because of it. I’m optimistic for their future releases.
They’ve played well over 1,000 shows since the start of the band. Playing the same old songs can get old, I’d imagine. You can’t really blame them for playing their newer catalogue. Those old albums are special, but that’s a chapter of their lives that they probably don’t feel accurately represents them as a band anymore. I don’t frequently check their set lists so I dunno if they still play the oldies, but if my memory serves me right, in the tours between In the Mountain in the Cloud and Evil Friends they’d play AKA M80 the Wolf, Chicago, Church Mouth, and Bellies Are Full every now and then.
I do hope their next move is a more psychedelic or progressive album. I think that’s what they do best live. If so, I’d expect more jam based shows in the future. Pure speculation though.
are you talking about the pair he has in THIS pic? If so, they’re Oliver Peoples Tokyo! If they aren’t the pair you were talking about, message back and we’ll look again especially since he has a ton of sunglasses.
We wanted to tell you about an incredible, invite only concert the band is doing to support a great cause! And we wanna fly you to see them!
PORTUGAL. THE MAN Free Concert in San Francisco — The Urgency Network Contest Date: Friday, November 15, 2013. Doors open at 8pm. Location: Pier 15 on the Embarcadero, next to the Exploratorium, San Francisco.
1) The Urgency Network is giving away a FREE TRIP to see the band perform an INVITATION ONLY SHOW in San Francisco! 2) You’ll get to MEET THE BAND and get a private tour of the ship! 3) Yes, it’s a special concert ON A SHIP! Greenpeace’s famous Rainbow Warrior. 4) Win the all expense paid trip just for SUPPORTING A SOCIAL CAUSE: Greenpeace’s “Save the Arctic” Campaign
We’re The Urgency Network and we reward fans with amazing experiences for supporting social causes. It’s as simple as that. You don’t have to spend a dime (though donations are welcome and greatly rewarded). Watch one of our videos, spread the word on Facebook — there are a ton of free actions you can do to help raise awareness on the cause and win yourself a free trip. No gimmicks, no joke.
This comes at a crucial time because, right now, there are a group of 30 environmentalists sitting in a jail — detained by the Russian government — simply because they wanted to peacefully protest oil drilling and they need your help, they need our voices. You’ll get a free trip, awesome show, and much more in return for supporting a great cause than you could ever imagine.
We would love it if you could help spread the word about this contest and post this info on your blog! Good Luck!
