27 January - Birmingham AL, Review+Setlist
Scott McCaughey did another solid opening set in Birmingham. As in New Orleans, he played mostly keyboards and was accompanied by drummer Joe Adragna (of the band The Junior League). Although tonight was just their second time performing together, to their credit, Scott and Joe changed up the set a fair bit. Tonight, one of the nuggets we got was The Old Plantation off the Down With Wilco record.

And the Hank Williams cover was also a nice surprise. I can't remember if Scott mentioned Joe telling him that Hank Williams died in Birmingham (which turns out not to be true) or if Joe said that he just spent one of his last nights in Birmingham, not far from the Alabama Theatre (which is true). Either way, it was a neat rendition of the song.

At any rate, the "Minus 2" set went this way:

The Town That Lost Its Groove Supply
My Life as a Creep
Cemetery Row
The Old Plantation
Daggers Drawn
Original Luke (Scott on baritone guitar)
I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive (Scott-guitar) [Hank Williams]
Rifle Called Goodbye
Aw Shit Man (Scott-guitar)

26 January - New Orleans LA, Review+Setlist
Tonight was the first show on this tour that I've gotten to see with Scott McCaughey opening, and since I haven't really seen a lot written about Scott's opening sets, I figured I'd at least post what he played tonight.

It was a treat to hear some songs off the Down With Wilco record, especially Daggers Drawn. And it was totally awesome to hear his version of So Much Wine. Apparently Scott's been playing with different local people each night, so his sets have been changing at least a little bit from night to night. At tonight's show, he had Joe Adragna (of a New Orleans band called The Junior League) with him on drums and background vocals. Scott played mostly keyboard, somewhat surprisingly. On a few numbers, he also played baritone guitar.

Anyway, here was his set:

Rifle Called Goodbye
Twilight Distillery
Daggers Drawn
My Life As A Creep
Original Luke (Scott-guitar)
So Much Wine (Scott-guitar) [Handsome Family]
The Town That Lost Its Groove Supply
The Days of Wine and Booze
Aw Shit Man (Scott-guitar)

Hitchcock Documentary debuts on Sundance Channel in March
NEW YORK, Jan. 18 -- Robyn Hitchcock: Sex, Food, Death ... and Insects, a Sundance Channel original production, debuts on Tuesday, March 27, 2007 at 10:00 pm et/pt. Directed by John Edginton (The Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett Story), the hour-long documentary follows British singer/songwriter Hitchcock and band The Venus 3, featuring Peter Buck (R.E.M.), Bill Rieflin (Ministry, REM), and Scott McCaughey (Minus 5, REM, The Young Fresh Fellows), as they spend a week in July of 2006 recording an album of new material at Hitchcock's house in West London. The film captures Hitchcock at work as he adds to his stockpile of wonderfully wry and twisted rock songs. The musical equivalent of black comedy, Hitchcock's songs express a fundamentally dark worldview, energized by droll wit, surreal imagery and a dynamite vocabulary
