Set lists seem roughly the same, love to hear some nervous and weird more of WON.

For me please request "Overwhelming".

Otherwise request some Colorfinger songs! Dear god, or something else he wont expect like "This Is Your Death Song", or "How Soon is Now"

Seriously, Static, Separation, The Color Pit! Something we haven't heard like you know 1000+ times.... :P

Or you know new songs aside from "The Man Who Broke His Own Heart"... I don't know why no one requests something new

Forgot to mention someone asked if he'd play Colorfinger and his response was "fuck you." He kept telling people to quit requesting sad songs. He said some songs he won't play because they make him cry. The Baltimore crowd was requesting a lot with everyone yelling so mostly he let ladies in crowd request.

So what was the reason he wouldn't play Chemical Smile or do you mean he said he'd tell the fan why after the show?

I wonder why he wouldn't play Chrysanthemum? I would think that would be an easy request to fill.

Fucking awesome if it happens, some of my favorite Everclear shows were with JImmies Chicken Shack.

Throw in Big Bad Voodoo Daddy or some other swing band Art mentioned, Summerland 2015 will be awesome!

Art pointed my wife out to hear her request - she wanted to hear Otis Redding. He said he couldn't play it because it would make him cry. Thrift Store Chair was easily the most widely requested song, which he finally gave into as the last request of the night. We also got a bit of The Swing, Amphetamine and Learning How to Smile in full. Lots of great stories - great concert!

Just got back from the Conroe, TX show, it was great! My wife and I had dinner with Art before the show and got to listen to the new album, and I got to play the keytar (very poorly) during Everything To Everyone. The setlist was:

Song from an American Movie, Pt. 2
Wonderful
Learning How To Smile
Heartspark Dollarsign
Harvest
The Man Who Broke His Own Heart
Loser Makes Good
Strawberry
Father Of Mine
Eleanor Young
I Will Buy You A New Life
Requests: You Make Me Feel Like A Whore, Glorious, Fire Maple Song, Nervous & Weird, Amphetamine, and The Swing
Everything To Everyone
Santa Monica

I recorded the whole show and will be posting it to YouTube.

Recording of "Eleanor Young". "The Swing", "You Make Me Feel Like A Whore" acoustic is rare as fuck!

I don't think he's ever done "You Make Me Feel Like A Whore" acoustic, that's a first, plus the "The Swing", amazing!

"Glorious" was quite the surprise too!
