Would have made more sense to me to play a bunch of SOANM stuff though...
Incidentally, that was the first time they've played 'Cars' live since 1999.
Not complaining about Soul or Demanufacture songs at all, just seems odd to stick them all together.
They always have good setlists, the pacing of them always seems strange. I saw them open with 5 straight songs from Soul of a New Machine once (on the Transgression tour), not that I am complaining...
