This Is Not A Show
This just makes me want to cry. I can't believe I didn't go to these.
R.E.M. debuts new "guitar-heavy" material in Dublin. They're playing 5-nights, testing out new songs for their upcoming record. They're calling it a "working-rehearsal."
Word is that it harkens back to the heavier, Hi-Fi and Monster-era guitar sound. In a small theater. In Europe. sigh... The older tracks filling out the shows include nuggets like "Little America", "Sitting Still", "Second Guessing", "Maps and Legends", "Letter Never Sent", "1,000,000" and more. And there are still 2 more shows to go.
Please, please, please come home and do something like this. I'd be on a plane in a heartbeat.
