I've bought my tickets already. Very affordable at $32 for front row in the balcony. Looking forward to it.

would love that.
here's the setlist i played:

rider on the wheel
pink moon
fly
parasite
radiohead: videotape (introduced by noting the alarming similarity between 'parasite' and the actionably emulative 'subterranean homesick alien')
river man
one of these things first
hanging on a star

introduction-bryter layter
joey
hazey jane (the only arrangement too hard to play at the time of the recording; doesn't appear on the upcoming album release)
northern sky
harvest breed
place to be
three hours
from the morning

I for one am eagerly awaiting your CD release, but do you know if your Royce Hall concert was recorded?

it certainly wasn't recorded officially, and i'm unaware of any tapers having been in evidence. the concert hall was a wonderful place, and the hamburg steinway concert grand couldn't have been a more inspiring partner. david sefton at UCLA makes a very nice home for music.
