Setlist: Open, Fascination Street, Sleep When I'm Dead, Push, Inbetween Days, Play For Today, A Forest, Before Three, Lovesong, Just Like Heaven, From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea, alt.end, Pictures of You, Lullaby, Close To Me, Hot Hot Hot, Wrong Number, The Caterpillar, The Walk, Mint Car, Friday I'm In Love, Doing the Unstuck, Bananafishbones, Want, Hungry Ghost, One Hundred Years, End.
Note: The end was odd. Robert said thank you and waved, then walked off. No "Goodnight" or "See you again". I think he was expecting that they would come out for an encore, but they were already past 10. Not their fault, since they had to start 4 minutes late due to Social Distortion not ending their set on time. I was so pissed at them. They wouldn't shut up!
Update: Mystery solved. They did plan a 1 song encore. Surprisingly, not 'Boys Don't Cry', it would have been 'Give Me It'. But thanks to Social Distortion's bullshit, they didn't have time. Thanks to Lana for providing this photo of the stage setlist and solving the mystery.

No webcast tonight, or for any of the Riots, but I will be doing the live setlist reports if all goes well, and there's a chance that it won't, given how difficult it is to get a signal in the park, but I'l do my best. Olivier will also be providing updates, if possible, at it's a perfect day.
My updates will be via Twitter (@CraigatCoF) and they should appear below in the widget. If not, just check my Twitter or check Olivier's updates. Either way, I'll get it all updated after the show. Here's hoping there will be some surprises to rush back and tell you all about. :)
So have a great time, don't get too muddy, and go see some of the other great bands playing today, and enjoy the other attractions. I'm hoping to see Billy Bragg, Tegan & Sara, Patti Smith, and hope to go through the haunted house, and catch a little of the Lucha Libre wrestling and burlesque show. Oh yeah, I might see that band The Cure. Heard they're pretty good. :)
