They posted a picture of their 2013 setlist on facebook saying it was going to be 40 songs long...

they said they were going to play about 40 or so songs tonight, but they didnt stray away from what the setlist said.

Well that's stupid to post a 40 song setlist and say its what they're going to play this year, then use a short setlist and complain they couldn't do the one they wanted. Maybe the venue cut their set?

They had a huge setlist posted beside their backdrop. It only had the 32 songs on it. I just saw the 40 song setlist on their facebook, i wonder if they ended playing it the first few shows this year and than realized its too tiring.

You're probably right. They might have outdone themselves on trying to do 40 songs so they cut it back down to the usual 32.

We usually play about 30 of these 40 songs, in about 90 minutes.

Got that from Spike Cassidy's Facebook. I don't know what the DRI one said, but I agree that it's misleading with the setlist saying "40 songs 2 hours" or something like that.

Maybe I'm a little late to the party but is DRI supposed to be doing a new album somewhat soon since they played a few new songs or have those been being played for awhile?

There are murmurs of a new album in the wake. Against me though has been around since 2004. Which I thought was weird when they said it was a new song last night yet i remember them playing it in 2009.

"As Seen on Your TV" is a lyric from the Probot song "Silent Spring"

Since Kurt sang that for Dave Grohl, I wonder if it's the same song or just related or cooincidence...

Well I hope they play Fun and Games then since it was on the 40 song set.

The place was pretty packed, not sold out, but packed enough. The venue is pretty much a bar with a quaint floor area and with a pretty wide stage. There was also a wonderfully placed post right in the middle said stage. There was a row or two of people in the front, and than a giant pit remained open for the entirety of the show for mosh purposes. There was a fair amount of people on each side. I don't necessarily recall the back, but it was probably filled with people sitting at tables. There was no stage diving, and the one person that attempted just awkwardly fell on first row. Probably around 75-90 people attended. Given the size of the place it felt cramped and packed.

Coincidence. It was very catchy.

Lots of good stuff in that set. I'm curious to see how long they're gonna play for on the Suicidal Tendencies tour. Although my date will probably be a shortened set since its at NEMHF.
