Scotland's Twilight Sad was recently in the news because they had to cancel a few shows due to Visa complications.
Danger, Will Robinson
They did songs from their Danger EP, including "Pillars of Creation".
Micah P Hinson
His entire set was just him, an acoustic guitar, and an old timey microphone. Highlight of the show may be either his intro song, "Take Off that Dress for Me", or his failed attempt at a fan's request to play "Drift to Sleep". He confessed he actually doesn't practice or rehearse all of his songs, instead he substituted "Drift to Sleep" with "Dyin' Alone". Ended his set with "God is Good".
As for Twilight Sad: "Scotland's rubbish!", singer James Graham said on stage. As I previously mentioned, they were more than happy to be playing to an audience in America, Graham later added that he would've been happy to play to twenty or thirty people, but he was really pleased at the turn out - the venue was filled with adoring fans (truth be told, I was also surprised at the great turnout).
As you can see from the setlist, they mostly did songs from their latest album, No One Can Ever Know, including "Kill It in the Morning", "Alphabet", "Sick", "Dead City" and "Nil". However, I thought the highlight of their set was an "old" song from their debut album, "Cold Days From the Birdhouse" (which I don't actually see on the setlist).
Twilight Sad is currently on tour in America, on the road to SXSW. Their third album, No One Can Ever Know, is out now via Fat Cat Records.
