Jesse Lacey played “Untitled 03” (the original! not “Aloc-Acoc”) at a cancer benefit show on Long Island last week.

Brand New - “Sic Transit Gloria…Glory Fades” (acoustic)
Happy birthday, Deja Entendu.
Brand New - “Untitled 05” (live on NYE)
Brand New - “Moshi Moshi” (live at Messiah College; 04/30/11)
I was there! I’m not sure I could put into words how shocked and elated I was to experience this back in April; I didn’t think I’d ever hear the song live again, and then this happened. Well, I just found out that someone recorded the whole set so now I can relive it in mp3 format (there was already a video of the song), as well as the phenomenal “Soco” (“I’m old and jealous cos you’re young and in love”) that preceded it.
BRAND NEW - “MOSHI MOSHI”
This happened Saturday night. The show (and set) was very, very, very good, and to get this rare surprise closer was just unbelievable. I love you, Brand New.
My girlfriend and I are hitting the road soon for the best weekend ever.
Third Eye Blind was my first favorite band. When 2001 came around, I heard Your Favorite Weapon and Brand New was my new favorite band and they have been ever since. I doubt the two will ever tour together, so getting to see them on back to back days is about as good as it will ever get.
Today: Allston, MA to New Jersey for the night.
Tomorrow: NJ to Hershey, PA for a trip to Chocolate World; Hershey to Grantham, PA for BRAND NEW at Messiah College with Jordan and Maria, who I have not seen in 366 days.
Sunday: PA to Providence, RI for THIRD EYE BLIND at Lupo’s. Then I guess it’s home to Allston.

Brand New is really good at only making one setlist per tour and playing it every night, so if this is what I see Saturday I’ll be a very, very happy boy. The lack of “You Stole” is excellent, and I haven’t heard “Millstone” or “Spin Light” or “Soco” live in awhile and that song at the end is just alshrakhjkahkah YES. Awhile ago, I wrote this big long piece about how much that song - especially live, especially with the changed lyrics at the end - means to me, but I never posted it because it was far too personal. I’d love to be able to hear it live like that again now.
The last time I saw Brand New was April 29, 2010 at Hampton Beach Ballroom Casino.
The next time I’ll see Brand New is April 30, 2011 at Brubaker Auditorium in Grantham, Pennsylvania.
My girlfriend bought us tickets today.
It will be my 33rd Brand New show.
Anyone else going (to any of their April shows)?
