Right Round - 2/21/09 - Setlist and Commentary

GREAT night!!! SO fun!!! YAY!

I think there were something like 370 people in the room - it was packed, the vibe was great, there were NO stalkers anywhere (although I got the distinct feeling that someone was vying for that title, but anyway...) - all in all, a winner.

Here's the setlist, with "**" by the requests. I've been TRYING to mix it up a bit (pardon the pun) and have been tracking the music I play month to month so that I can do it - some of the hits sneak their way in, but what can you do...?

Yanyou - Germany Calling
Talking Heads - Girlfriend is Better
