Built to Spill and Meat Puppets at The Pageant Tonight

March 15, 2008

Built to Spill and Meat Puppets are playing at The Pageant tonight. I am quite excited about this… I am a huge BTS fan and I unfortunately missed the Meat Puppets when they played at the Duck Room last fall. And it’s a Saturday-night show, too, so that’s nice. Helvetia is on the bill, as well.

They’ve been covering Brian Eno’s “Third Uncle” on this tour. Here’s a clip of them playing it in Edmonton last year:

…and I’ve seen Built to Spil’s setlists for this past tour, and a song called “No Lullaby” has shown up on a few of them. Could it be Jethro Tull’s “No Lullaby”? Doug is beginning to look like any number of the members of JT:

  1. I was really sad I was going to miss this show (I’m a washU student and I’m home for spring break) but it ended up they played in my hometown this week as well! It was a pretty great show, unfortunately my friends were lame and we left before it was over– BTS played an unbelievably long set, with lots of stuff from their first album. The Brian Eno cover is awesome.
