Happy New Year 2010!

Last night I made it to the Doug Fir, for the highly anticipated NYE set by Quasi playing The Who.  That’s a high bar, and the band did a great job!  With Janet ‘Keith Moon’ Weiss on drums, Joanna Bolme on The Ox’s bass, and Sam Coomes in orange Townshend jumpsuit on guitar, the opened at around 11:30pm with “Substitute” and roared into the new year.

Here’s the set as I remember it (order’s probably a bit off and I may have missed a few):

  • Substitute
  • I Can See for Miles
  • Pictures of Lily
  • Boris the Spider
  • The Kids are Alright
  • a bit of a jam leading up to the midnight hour… and then in 2010:
  • My Generation – guest male vocal
  • Long Live Rock – guest male vocal
  • Young Man Blues – guest vocal from Corin Tucker?
  • Armenia City in the Sky
  • Happy Jack
  • The Seeker
  • Can’t Explain
  • Won’t Get Fooled Again
  • Encore: Heaven and Hell

This was great fun!  Thanks to Quasi for making it happen.  I’ll take it as a good sign for 2010.
