Song request for Black Market Bar

Post by this_side » Mon Sep 24, 2012 7:08 pm

Hey frank! First off, really looking forward to the show this Thursday! Me and my friends have seen you twice now in Atlanta, and it's great that you're actually playing a solo show in bham! Anyhow, I was wondering if you could possibly play 'I Knew Prufrock Before He Got Famous' at the show? That would just be really awesome, haha. Thanks! -Will
So if I tell you all the little things that I think that I need, would you tell me how to tell the world from the woods from the trees?

This is a bit like asking Paul McCartney to play "Hey Jude"

Not really. I just really like that song and have yet to hear it live before.

I do not believe this. Was frank having a Mars Volta style pretentious gig where he refused to play any popular songs? Or were you just really, really late to the gig you went to?

He played a lot of popular songs, of course, he just never played Prufrock. Why is that so hard to believe? Plus, I was front row at both concerts, so definitely wasn't late. Didn't realize it's apparently not okay to request a popular song.

We totally ban it here, actually. Consider this your final warning. Next time, request an EP song at the very least. But if you want any kudos at all, either pick a song where the only current recording is a blurry 30-second youtube clip recorded on a phone, or a song from from the pre-MD days. Nothing in between.

I'm demanding that Frank plays a song he won't have written until 2 hours after the gig, I'm that hip.

Unless frank owns a time machine, that's going to be difficult.

And I don't think frank owns a time machine.

For one thing, he'd never be able to keep quiet about it. He would have ended up writing a song about it or something.

Pfft, that shit is easy, Particle Physics and power machines, Diesel Oil and Danny Darko Daydreams and you have it.
I'd rather be the one who loves than to be loved and never even know.

I laughed. Then I got it. Then I laughed again. Good work!

Amazing show. Couldn't believe it when he opened with prufrock. He also played worse things happen at sea and the fastest way back home
So if I tell you all the little things that I think that I need, would you tell me how to tell the world from the woods from the trees?
