BTMI 8/8/12

Last night I saw my favorite band play at Mac's Bar in Lansing (my absolute favorite venue in the world) for probably the last time ever. It was a thoroughly bittersweet experience. I've seen them play there about 10 times (roughly once every 6 months or so) over the years. I'm moving 1600 miles away in a couple months, and this will surely be one of the most memorable of the hundreds of shows I've seen in my 25 years of living in Michigan.
1Bomb the Music Industry!
Campaign for a Better Next Weekend

Jeff opened by acknowledging all the support he's received in the days following the news that this is in all likelihood BTMI's last American tour. He also touched on the band's roots in Michigan and he got a bit choked up. Before playing this song he said "We're Bomb the Music Industry! from Lansing, Michigan," which was pretty cool.
Everybody That Loves You
3The First Time I Met Sanowan
4All Ages Show
5Sorry, Brooklyn. Dancing Won't Solve Anything.

Only the second time they've ever played this live.

8I Don't Love You Anymore

One of my favorites. First time I've ever seen them play it.
9The Shit That You Hate
11Hurricane Waves
13Even Winning Feels Bad (w/ Bulls on Parade interlude)

Yeah, they did a complete cover of RATM's Bulls on Parade during the bridge.

16Can't Complain
17Syke! Life Is Awesome!
19Hidden Track from Vacation
20Jobs Schmobs

After their set Jeff hugged/talked to just about everyone in attendance. He remembered me from their BBQ contest show a couple summers ago, which was pretty neat. I thanked him for all the shows and expressed my hope that this wasn't the last time I'd see them play at Mac's. He said, "you never know, but at least we had a fucking awesome last show." Indeed.
