Right Round - 9/20/08 AND Tinderbox - 10/2/08 - Setlist and Commentary

Sorry I've been so derelict in my duties as a DJ. I have been ridiculously busy for the last few weeks, and totally forgot to post my setlists for the last Right Round and Tinderbox - FOR SHAME!! I shall now get 'er done, as they say...

First, without further delay, here is the setlist from the last Right Round, which I have to say did an excellent job redeeming itself from the abysmal attendance of July and August. Also, I made the decision to go super off the beaten path with this set, which made one particularly drunk attendee comment, "You know, I ordinarily don't like this alternative shit at all... but you did a pretty good job pulling it off". Thanks so much - by chance have you been channeling my dead Nana from the grave with the thinly veiled, sarcastic half-compliments...?
