Kings Of Leon’s Friday Warfield setlist

Whoever took the fantastic photos posted at Hippies Are Dead must have been standing right in front of me. Whether or not they were using an iPhone I’ll probably never know but Friday’s show brought out about a dozen of the hippest hand accessary there is within a couple of yards of where I was standing, re-inspiring my planned photo essay of rock fans holding aloft their picture/video capturing electronics.  I can see it now: posts with pictures of people taking pictures. Of course I’d have to remember to take notes unless the angle provides a view of the band as well (not likely, right).

Anyway, thanks to HAD for the shots, a real nice review and for knowing the name of every song KOL played Friday:

Crawl
My Party
Taper Jean Girl

King Of The Rodeo

Sex On Fire

Fans

Revelry

Milk

Razz

Molly’s Chambers

The Bucket

Somebody Like You

On Call

Closer
Cold Desert

Charmer

Slow Night, So Long

Knocked Up

Five of these songs are also in the live set I posted last week and they played my favorite (“King Of The Rodeo”)!

Patti Smith at the Warfield tonight

There are several reasons I’m excited to be seeing the Godmother of Punk over in the city tonight. The first is that today is Arthur Rimbaud’s birthday.  Anyone worth their salt knows Patti is first and foremost a poet and that Rimbaud had a profound influence on her life & work. “Piss Factory,” the b-side of her first single & #718 on Cream magazine founder Dave Marsh’s The 1001 Greatest Singles Ever Made, describes the salvation Smith found in a shoplifted copy of the 19th century French poet’s Illuminations. Another reason is the impending presidential election. I can’t wait to hear her take on McCain vs. Obama.  We already know how she feels about W (see below). And of course there’s the recent premier of Steven Sebring’s documentary Patti Smith: Dream Of Life, currently showing at the Lumiere Theater @ 1572 California Street in SF (click here to check out the trailer). Here’s hoping the movie turns on the uninitiated to a true national treasure.

Piss Factory

Declaration Of Independence – Patti speaking Bush truth like only she can, live @ The Bowery Ballroom, NYC 12/31/05

And while we’re Bush bashing I have to include a song I’m sure Patti would appreciate, Bright Eyes‘ anti-presidential diatribe that’s still available for free on iTunes:

When The President Talks To God

And the last reason is this amazing cover of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ she’s been performing lately:

Quick note about the tunes

The mp3s on this blog are to give folks a little taste. Imagine they're those little pouches on the bag your Sunday paper comes in. You know, the one's with a packet containing just enough toothpaste to brush your teeth once or twice. They are left up for a limited time. If you find something you like support the artists by dragging your friends to their shows and/or buying their CDs/records/schwag. If you are the artist (or their label/representative) and don't want an mp3 on here, please email me (mike@nowhearthismusic.com) and I'll remove it posthaste.
