My friend Beth & I went to see the ever entertaining Butch Walker this past Friday night at the Varsity Theatre in Dinkytown. He is out touring his new EP Peachtree Battle which I wrote about previously. I’ve only missed seeing him in Minneapolis once since I rediscovered him back in 2004. He is such an amazing musician and one of the few who actually sounds better live. I don’t know anyone else I can say that about.
Anyway, I thought you might want to see the setlist, so I posted it below. If you’re not familiar with his material, there are links to buy all the songs on iTunes. I also made a Spotify playlist to match up with the setlist.
- Passed Your Place, Saw Your Car, Thought of You
- Cigarette Lighter Love Song – originally a Marvelous 3 song. I love it as a live, piano-based song. My wife loves the Marvelous 3 version. Take your pick.
- Don’t Move
- Freak Of The Week – another Marvelous 3 song. weird crowd dude came up to sing because Butch is sick of singing it
- Peachtree Battle
