We showed up in the middle of Johnny Nobody’s set, and I’m kinda dissappointed, because they were really good! The lead singer had quite a voice, and power to match. They had quite a few fans as well, cuz the crowd was holllering for them through the entire set. Then Diffuser came out and made JN look even better, cuz they sucked HARD. The lead singer guy had some wack hair dying thing going on too. “DIFFUSER GETS FAT CHICKS!” hehe! Anyway, after an impatient delay, the Toadies came out, ripping into Motivational, then into Mr Love, which got the crowd pretty fired up. Its been over 6 years since theyd been to Buffalo, but there werent a whole lot of hardcore fans there, or so it seemed. The rest of the setlist shaped up like: Push The Hand, Hell Below / Stars Above, Possum Kingdom, What We Have We Steal, Little Sin, Got A Heart, Away, Plane Crash, Paper Dress, I Come From The Water, Heel, Quitter, and then the Toadies made the evening way more interesting and fun. As Todd (the lead singer) put it, “Now we were going to do the rock star encore thing and come back and play a song called Sweetness, but we’re not gonna do that bullshit!” Mark, the drummer, at this point crumpled up his setlist and threw it! Everyone in the crowd was yelling for Tyler, so they aquiesced, but not before Todd threated not to play it due to some guy in the audience calling him a “motherfucker”. “Nah, I’m just kidding, we’re gonna play it!” So Tyler got played, then they started taking requests from the crowd! “What do you want to hear off the new record?” “BACKSLIDER!!” “Backslider isn’t on the new record!!” There were people yelling for Dollskin, so that got played, then Backslider and Jigsaw Girl, after which they finally played Sweetness, and a cover of the Pixies “Where is My Mind”. I subsequently got the setlist Mark threw on the ground! For 10 bucks, this was an awesome show!
