I enjoyed it, really liked the focus on the band and the process of finally putting out the album after all this time.

Amen! I didn't love it when I first heard it, but it's held up as my favorite TSL song.

Really liking this--worth the wait!

As an added bonus, the info on Youtube also lists an Amazon pre-order with a June 16th release date. Color me excited.

I can't believe Kids in the Street was three years ago...wow. Would love to hear more in a similar style!

Eventually there were, but the Shone scavenger hunt required a good deal of collaboration first--different pieces of the puzzle went to different people. No one person had all of the information.

That Montauk page was last updated in 2003, so it goes back even before the demos leaked. At this point, nothing would surprise me with this band though.

I sort of agree re: putting a lot of faith in one person to do the right thing, but so much about the Shone package campaign proved it'll work: people tracked the things down with the help of Twitter...

Transmission tower built by Tesla in like 1901 in Shoreham (on LI). Given how all the Shone stuff used little-known LI landmarks, that address immediately made me think there's something hidden...

After Shone, I didn't think even Brand New could do something that'd shock me, but lo and behold, lyric booklets and Wardenclyffe Tower. Wow.

The chorus didn't catch me as much here as it does on FOYD but that bridge was amazing.

They did do the SILYMI anniversary tour and a handful of summer dates. Yeah, it's not being fully active again, but that was a pretty good showing.

The $400 VIP is potentially a superb deal if they end up on some big tours. Very tempted.

Looks like next week might be the last for a month: their "house" DJ is back for February.

Nearly every Thursday at the Henry Bar in the Hudson Hotel. Haven't been there myself, but I hear it's a good time if you can get past the pricey drinks.

No. I posted the full set in the TSL thread if you want to see the whole thing.

And no mention of any tour either. Kenny was talking about the holiday shows in a way that suggests they'll do...

Oh, I'm with you that it's funny how ridiculous people are being.

In my case, I bought a ticket for last night in the original sale and a friend did the same with a Starland ticket. I wanted to see...

I don't think it was unreasonable to expect to hear the first two tonight since they had done them that way in Cali. I actually really enjoyed seeing Daisy but I when I chose which show I was going...

Didn't record (just wanted to listen), but Vin sang, it was longer than the album version, and the lyrics were no more descipherable.

I never would have thought I'd like Person L or Vacationer on genre alone, but I love them both, so I hope you don't mind my jumping in with some recs:

I snagged a ticket for LI, but if it ends up being TDAG & Daisy, I'd gladly swap for a Starland ticket for a chance to finally hear the early b-sides live.

Is that a guess or have you heard something beyond the announcement?

So what if they offered some ridiculous packages? No one is making any fans buy them.
