Wonderful weekend in Minneapolis. Good to see people I haven't seen in a while and meet very nice people. Also get to know the twin cities and hang around lots of bars. In summary a very good time
The fine line is huge, compared to any other venues I've been to. Very big crowd, although I was told by several people that it was empty compared to how it normally is. It's definetely very upscale and trendy, I felt completely underdressed, it has a "club" atmosphere. Also high tech bar, they even have a monitor on the bathroom that shows what's going on stage so that you dont miss the show while peeing. Sound and lights are excellent. They don't have tables next to the stage, it's just people standing . Tables are about 30 or 40 feet away or in the second floor. In contrast with any other venue they have an opening band before Pat. And Pat plays with a drummer there, which is cool.
The show was allright, the standard large crowd show, with the exception of tomorrow's gonna be another day, let's do that again and I flip a coin
Some of the songs played in the first set: Ruin my life (second song, don't remember which one was first) shity little apartment, flip a coin, tomorrow's gonna be another day, spank me, I was high, opposites attract (I think it was in the first set, but I'm not positive) hep paddy and ended with tribute to the 90s, let's do that again and knock things over
Second set: Screw you, Jesus with Murf singing "I'm sailing away" as one of the favourite songs, In my new religion, Oh well what the hell, gopher with Kim doing the female part, ended with tribute to the 80s, I don't wanna go home (Mike was deeply missed) and sex and beer. I can't remember more at the moment but there should be a few more
