Today featured a power outage, a busted air conditioner, a forgotten wallet, unbearable heat, and approximately 20,000 orange construction barrels on the road from Cincinnati to Louisville, but it ended on a positive note with a chance spotting of Nick Cave and a couple Bad Seeds in our hotel. Somewhere in between the barrels and the brush with celebrity was a meet-up with friends and an amazing concert. The setlist from that concert is as follows:
Main set: We No Who U R/Jubilee Street/Tupelo/Red Right Hand/Mermaids/The Weeping Song/From Her to Eternity/West Country Girl/Into My Arms/God Is in the House/Higgs Boson Blues/The Mercy Seat/Stagger Lee/Push the Sky Away
Encore: The Ship Song/Papa Won’t Leave You, Henry/The Lyre of Orpheus
And I either used the world’s greatest urinal, or I peed on some art. The 21c is a strange hotel.
