It All Starts With Built To Spill...

This video is from a concert in July, 2007. The mighty Built To Spill covering Brian Eno's "Third Uncle". Apparently this song has become a fairly regular staple in their set lists. Oh, did I mention that I am going to see these legends on Thursday night at the Metro. I am seriously excited by this, as this band has for many years been my favourite of all time. Well, either them or Pavement or maybe Wolf Parade, given their pure genius. But it is between those three.

Here is a set list from their show at the Corner Hotel on Saturday night-
In The Morning
Center Of The Universe
Goin' Against Your Mind
Made Up Dreams
Third Uncle
Nowhere Nothin' Fuckup
Time Trap
Conventional Wisdom
Carry The Zero

E: Randy Describes Eternity
