My Morning Jacket live at the Metro, Chicago, IL, September 25, 2003 Posted by Lc. at the My Morning Jacket mailing list: Here's what took place at the Cabaret Metro last night- My Morning Jacket came to life for a shitload of people who were probably () close to opting for a night noogying their fratboy buddies and buying chocolate martinis for vapid pretties instead of actually checking out some live music. And I bet they're glad opted for the music. Great crowd, a good 500-600 people, and people were definitely with the band. Comments on the way out were generally along the lines of "that was the greatest show I ever saw", and I'm not gonna argue. Hell, a buddy asked me last night what I thought, and when I shouted my answer in my post-show adrenaline-fueled way, he pointed out that I'd reacted the same way after the last time MMJ was through town. Well hell, someone who saw Springsteen 10 times in 1978 could probably relate. Here's what they played mahgeeta dance floors master plan heartbreakin' man way that he sings lowdown (may have missed one here) xmas curtain one big holiday i will sing you songs steam engine run thru --- (main set ends) (1:10) golden (solo acoustic)-beautiful sooner (w/bongos and band) ez morn rebel phone went west Total time: 1:40 If not for the curfew on all-ages show, I'm pretty sure they'd have gone on at least another hour.
