The Scoop: Iconic mystery-rock outfit Brand New performed a pre-cursor of sorts to their impending December album shows last night in Los Angeles. Former MEB’er and co-founder himself, Jack Appleby, was fortunate enough to be in attendance and live-Tweeted the entire experience for those less fortunate. You can check out the band’s arduous set-list below, as well as a few live shots.
“The Shower Scene”
“Logan To Government Center”
“Seventy Times 7”
“Sic Transit Gloria… Glory Fades”
“I Will Play My Games Beneath the Spin Light”
“Me vs. Meridona vs. Elvis”
“The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows”
“Okay I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don’t”

The Spin: Despite what was undoubtedly an unforgettable experience for all those in attendance, Brand New has an extremely busy (for them at least) month ahead of them. With four shows scheduled (two on east cost, two on west coast) where they are scheduled to play their entire discography throughout the course, BN fans better strap themselves in because this is going to be a hectic few weeks.
Also, be sure to tune into AbsolutePunk later today, as Jack will be reporting, in full, his experience of the show last night.
The Question: What do you think of the set list? Have you attempted to obtain tickets to see Brand New at any of the shows they have scheduled this month? If so, were so successful? Let us know in the comments below!
