TBS Tour Notes: Nashville, TN, 10/19

Tonight, Taking Back Sunday played in Nashville, TN, for another stop on their fall tour with Bad Rabbits and The Maine. I got to mingle and take pictures with the band before the show. Among other things, I learned what kitchen appliance each of the band members would be and why:

Eddie - A coffeemaker, because he's Columbian
Adam - A microwave, because he's efficient
John - A toaster, because he's hot
Shaun - A food processor, because he got one for his wedding and loves it
Mark - A fork, because he loves to eat

And, of course, I dutifully took notes on the setlist in between rocking my face off on the front row:

El Paso
Error Operator
You Know How I Do
Faith (When I Let You Down)
Liar (It Takes One to Know One)
Bike Scene
Best Places to Be a Mom
One Eighty by Summer
Existentialism on Prom Night
What's it Feel Like to Be a Ghost?
A Decade Under the Influence
This is All Now
You're So Last Summer
Timberwolves at New Jersey
You Got Me
Cute Without the 'E'

There's No 'I' In Team
