Yea, I was gonna say, someone posted a screenshot of a setlist on FB and I saw Eleanor Young, The Man That Broke His Own Heart, and a couple of song titles I didn't recognize.

Somebody needs to record one of these shows!

I went to the Kansas City riot room show last night. It was a really great show actually. Art looked great and had tons of playful energy the entire time. His voice seemed strong too. Unfortunately I had to leave early, but here's what he played that I heard.
-songs from an American movie
-wonderful
-harvest
-loser makes good
-almost instant karma
-heartspark dollarsign
-sunflowers
-amphetamine(kinda cool acoustic)
-start of am radio just to shut one girl up
-e2e

That's what I saw and they were all pretty damn good. He broke a string on heartspark and spent some time interacting with everyone while Freddy restrung his guitar. People were really into the show too which was nice to see and I got to spend a little bit of time talking to Freddy, who recognized me from my Facebook profile so I thought that was really cool.
Man..... I really need na better Sig.

Made it to the show at The Amsterdam in St. Paul MN last night and I must say it was very awesome. This place was a bar and grill that featured Dutch food with tables around the perimeter with full wait staff throughout the entire show, much like it appears most all the solo shows are be played at. There were maybe 175-200 people in attendance and Art was the only performer and hit the stage around 8:15 and played for about 70 minutes. Couple notes, as others have mentioned Freddy and one other guy were present helping Art with setup and sound, just thought that was pretty cool. Art was looking for Max Collins from Eve 6 to sing Heartspark Dollarsign with him, as he said he was supposed to be there, but unfortunately he wasn't, too bad as that would have been fantastic. Art broke a guitar string during IWBYANL, but finished and then Freddy grabbed his guitar to repair it as Art got another very different sounding guitar for a few songs. While playing Harvest he forgot the words and laughed it off very genuinely while trying to come up with them before finally giving in and moving on to the next song. I thought that was great rather than mush mouthing his way through them as we've all seen him do over the years, very honest and funny. Overall he seemed very happy and full of energy and excitement, playing with a lot of heart while staying very down to earth, and again I say genuine. We did get the download card as we left and I immediately got it on my phone and I agree with the other post that it sounds the same as the version on YouTube only finishes out rather than fade away. One final note, I recorded the audio from the show using my Samsung Galaxy Note ll, unsure of how it would sound as I've never done anything like that before, and it turned out AMAZING! I would be willing to give it to Eric if he wants to host it somehow for everyone to share. Right now its one gigantic 65 min clip that needs to be cut up. I screwed up the last song when I tried to take a quick picture, but we've all heard Santa Monica a tine or two:)

I assume you recorded the show with the voice recorder application on the galaxy? If so, you can connect your phone to your computer, and the file should be in the "sounds" directory. After you copy that to your computer, you could upload it to mediafire.com . I've seen a few files hosted on there and it seems to be the least annoying of file hosting sites. Thanks for recording the show.

Finally someone bootlegged on of the solo shows from this tour!!! Fuck yes!!!

As others have said, connect your phone to your desktop computer, it should pop up as a storage device, find the biggest file, and copy it to your desktop, then upload it to mediafire.

I can do any editing, and will repost it here pretty quick.

My only complaint is I don't see "Eleanor Young" on the set list.

This is bullshit
If it makes you feel any better, the tour starts in November. The october shows Lee posted are full band.
Brighton Music Hall tonight in Boston. Super excited. Yes, I'm glad I didn't go to the full band show, which is what I thought that was at the time.
VIP experience too! I've never done that before but for an 11 hour round trip I think it is well worth it

I'm sort of shocked that he hasn't played Sparkle yet... guess I know what I'll be requesting.
