Default Manics show in NY

First time in States in 10 years was an occasion. Webster Hall was a good place for a show. The crwd was a bit tame but appreciative and James thank us a couple times and they seemed really happy to be in NY for us.

James' guitar was kinda low IMO and they weren't quite as raw as I would have liked but they ripped off a great set covering much of their vast ground. Not enough of Holy Bible but can't complain.

they said no encore ever and I took them at their word and jumped for the train. I don't know what they have left on this U.S. tour (I know they already did Philly and Boston as someone I spoke with on the bathroom 'queue' told me), but if you have a chance to check a show, I recommend it.

Here's the setlist as I recompiled it (order might be a bit off):

1. Motosyco Emptiness (1-GenTer)
2. No surface all feelin (4-EvrythingMustGo)
3. La tristessa durera (2-GoldVsSoul)
4. Your Love Alone (8-Send Away the Tigers)
5. Peeled Apples (9-JournalPlagueLovrs)
6. Faster (3-HolyBible)
7. This is yesterday (acoustic) (3-HolyBible)
Sleepflower tease (2-GoldVsSoul)
8. Everlasting (acoustic) (5-TIMTTMY)
9. Marlon JD (9-JournalPlageLovrs)
10. Despair 2 Where (2-GoldVsSoul)
11. If You Tolerate This Ur Children Will Be Next (5-TIMTTMY)
12. Jackie Collins (9-JournalPlageLovrs)
13. Send Away the Tigers (8-SendAwayTheTigers)
14. Let Robeson Sing (6-Know Ur Enemy)
15. Me and Stephin Hawking (9-JournalPlague Lovrs)
16. Motown junk (early single)
17. You Stole the Sun from My Heart (5-TIMTTMY)
18. Enola/Alone (framton comment) (4-Evrything must go)
19. short slow song (don't know)->
20. You Love Us (1-GenTer)
21. Little baby nothing (1-GenTer)
22. Last: A Design For Life (4-EvrythingMustGo)

Nothing from 7 - Lifeblood (unless #19 I don't know)

# songs per LP:
1-GenTer (3)
