    True, but PJ has better setlists.
    This is very very true. The one thing I don't get about FF is that they haven't begun mixing up their set lists yet this far into their career.
    I think FF have a much more mainstream fans who aren't necessarily hardcore who wouldn't know b sides and outtakes. I could be wrong though. just from experience, people who seem to be fans of FF are more casual music fans than PJ fans are.

    No P,they have a very loyal and devoted fan base.We travel for shows and love the rarities just like PJ.
    really. interesting. I did not know that.

    In fact I hit probably 5 more FF shows a year than PJ.FF will mix in some tiny intimate shows which PJ has not in a decade.
    Could you imagine the excitement if PJ put out a lost dogs 2 for free just for 10 c.Hows that for giving back.I just don't see it happening.Foo are on a different level on that part of relationship with fan base.
    Have you seen them live Paul?

    Did anyone else get their mystery bag? I swear to god I'm about to buy another one. That'll put me at more FF shirts than PJ shits. But they're great T Shirts and the grab bag gives you 3 shirts for $30 including shipping. I actually scored a 2015 tour shirt which is awesome cuz I saw them at Citifield. image

    a really good Canadian band, Dearly Beloved, is recording at 606 right now. The bassist/lead singer posted a pic with him and Dave on Facebook yesterday. you should check them out. they rock. www.dearlybelovedmusic.com

    if you like punk, Queens of the Stone Age, stuff like that, you'll dig them.

    Just watched the Foos Cubby Bears show, amazing show.....imagine being there, such a small venue.

    That was a great show! I remember staying up to watch the live stream that night. Was lucky to catch the Sonic Highways club show in LA. Absolutely love when the Foos play small shows. Living in LA, I've been lucky enough to catch 4 of them over the years, all under 500 capacity. Can't wait for the next one!

    Wow that's awesome... I'm so jealous that's amazing. It's unreal that the Foos still do this intimate shows. I hope you get to enjoy many more :)
    Thanks for the photos.
  • samjamsamjam New YorkPosts: 9,280
    ^^Agreed, kasedoug, the small shows are so incredibly special. The "surprise" Foos show at 9:30 Club for Big Tony from Trouble Funk's birthday bash is in my top 3 concerts I've ever been to. Frankie G and I were lucky enough to be front row...it was surreal!! Especially at 9:30 Club, that place means a lot to me.
