In response to a coupla

In response to a coupla emails, here is the setlist for Living Colour’s performance yesterday:

Ignorance is Bliss
Sacred Ground
Middle Man
Trance
Time’s Up
Papa Was a Rolling Stone (Temptations Cover)
Elvis is Dead (With “Can’t Help Falling In Love” interlude)
Type
break
Love Rears Its Ugly Head
Cult of Personality
break
Tower of Soul (Hendrix cover)
American Skin (Springsteen cover)

A pretty standard set, but the highlight was definitely the closing cover of Springsteen’s American Skin Haunting and delicate, it evoked both the Boss’ original and his older standard The River, along with echoes of Purple Rain. I’m hoping to dig up an MP3 of their version somewhere online.

You can see a schedule of their upcoming dates on drummer Will Calhoun’s site. Go see ’em, you’ll like it.
