Song notes:

1. Last week I posted my Fantasy Setlist for the Old 97’s show at Harlow’s and then tweeted it to Rhett. He, being the nicest guy in rock, said he’d use it.

2. My list didn’t have any songs from Grand Theatre Volume 2 because I hadn’t gotten it yet {been an insanely weird month – not to worry, I picked on up at the show}.

It is AWESOME!

3. This is now my theme song. I’m a Trainwreck.

Song notes:

1. Jenny Lewis is adorable. The first time I saw her as an adult I wondered if she was in Camp Beverly Hills. The answer turned out to be yes. Who knew?

2. Apparently Rilo Kiley broke up recently. Guess I’ll just have to stick to these hits.

3. I am a sucker for a hand clap song.

Fantasy Set List: Old 97’s at Harlow’s, August 14th

Much to my surprise, my favorite band, Old 97’s,  is returning to Sacramento this weekend {the second time this summer and second time EVER}. I am ridiculously excited because with the Rubes coming soon, I’m not sure how many shows I’ll be going to in the near future. That being said, Sunday night I plan to rock.

Making a set list every night must be torture when you have so many good songs to choose from, so if I were in charge of the set list this is what it would look like.

39 Greatest Hits According to Me 

Every Night Is Friday Night (Without You)
A State Of Texas
Champaign, Illinois
Let The Whiskey Take The Reins
Please Hold On While The Train Is Moving
No Baby I
My Two Feet
The One
Here’s to the Halcyon
Early Morning
Rollerskate Skinny
King Of All The World
Buick City Complex
Designs On You
W.I.F.E.
Eyes for You – {If I only get one song, this would be it}
Ray Charles

In your fantasy world if you were in charge of making a set list, who would you make it for and what songs would you include?

Never seen the Old 97’s? Here is a recent show.

Favorite Duet: Song of the Day

Song notes:

1. A little solo road trip let me dig deep into my old97s/Rhett Miller catalog. {I’ve been banned from playing them while the hubs is home. He seems to think he’s heard them enough over the years. Whatevs.}

2. Seeing Rhett play this live is a little slice of awesome because of the duet nature of the song. One side of the audience gets the male Rhett and the other gets the female.

There are also crazy internet rumors about women from the audience coming up on stage to sing with him. {What a ridiculously terrifying fantasy/nightmare!}

3. Are you in Sacramento August 14th? If so, maybe we’ll get to see him play this at  Harlow’s.
