    I caught their set at Lupo’s in Providence on Saturday. Killer fucking set. However, having attained a set list, it appears they played the exact same set, tune for tune, in Providence that they did in New York

    Can I get a copy of the original file for the third pic from the bottom please? Or can you just enable the enlarge feature on that? Thanks

    Nice pics of the show!

    I also saw the Lupo’s show on Saturday. I had a blast. I couldn’t believe they played that long of a set with no real stopping.

    P.S. after the show at Lupo’s I stuck around to try and get my hands on a copy of a set list, and I overheard a convo between a fan and a few securety guards. Apparently Cedrix Bixler stole the kids cell phone from the stage while he was taking a few photo’s and was trying to get it back.
    Is it possible that “The Mars Volta Stole my cell phone” is the “The Arcade Fire stole my baseket ball” of 2008?

    hey andrew, im more surprised by the fact that they actually have songs.. Im not real familiar with these guys, but the fewtimes ive listened through their last album, I couldnt make heads or tails of it. It definiely rocks though!
    keep in mind that maybe Mars Volta may not be coming from the “different set every night” ethos… and probably arent expecting people to hit multiple shows in a row on their tours?

    some great photos!

    True that. What’s interesting though is they seem to draw a pretty equal crowd split between pabst loving hipsters and patchouli loving heads. They’re by no means a jamband, but they jam out pretty hard on top of their existing arragements. Provided, I’d tend to think they’d switch it up a bit more, if only to make the jams a little fresher

    I have a feeling that their next tour may see them switch up the setlist a little more. It seems to me that they are still getting the feeling for playing some of these new songs live.

    i’m a long time fan and over the years i’ve realized during a tour the set seems to stay the same while the improv sections that occur a number of times in various places during a set obviously change every show. sometimes the improv is mediocre and other times it makes the show.
