not a bad idea at all.

I've found that either using your memory or simply swiping the setlist works pretty well. ^_^

Yeah. I very very rarely bring a pen and pad anymore, and when I do, I often say fuck it and don't even use it.

Obviously getting the set list itself is the best possible solution... however, I consider myself pretty lucky with getting them and for all the shows I've been too I've only aquired 6 set lists (Symphony X, Blind Guardian, Tesla, Icarus Witch, Twisted Tower Dire, Beyond Fallen), and 1 or 2 of them were asked for.

Documenting your concert can be more involved than just getting a set list. My notebooks contain all kinds of details and memories, some having nothing to do with the actual set list, that provide a lot of color for my write ups.

Often, bands don't announce song titles. When you have to grab lyrics from unfamiliar songs, a notebook comes in very handy.

I don't even take notes... the most I do is just text shorthand to myself on my cell phone... but 90% of the setlists I remember are purely from memory...

I have a good memory, so that works.
