the fire, philadelphia, pa 4/11/15

great show with silver screams making the trip from boston and local band assemble. the exact set list was lost in a beer induced haze but it included a brand new song, know my name, and a few boston-centric tunes to make silver screams feel at home. the songs performed were:

good intentions
you never seem to mind
little builder
starting now
weekend politics
sweet tenderness
deep end
that’s how i escaped my certain fate (mission of burma)
infinite space
my impression now (guided by voices)
tell me twice
know my name
skin i’m in
whole wide world (wreckless eric)
u-mass (pixies)
