There were 55 different songs played, for a total of 380 songs played over the 34 shows, or about 11 per show.  The most songs were played at Mississippi Studios in Portland, which is cool because I was there!! The songs from Rose Mountain were played most often – almost a quarter of the time – with Ripe, Hopeless and Empty Head being the most popular from that album.  The new album, All at Once, was well represented (about 17% of all songs played).  And songs from that album were played at least once at every venue, and some venues heard up to 4 songs from the new album.  In other words, the fans were given plenty of opportunity to hear the new tunes.
 
A few other observations I found interesting.  Foulmouth is still quite popular with the fans and the band, even though it’s from the first album; no songs were played from Chalk Tape. Not surprisingly, songs from Baby Teeth and T.V.? were played less frequently, possibly since they are the oldest albums.  However, Power Move (released in 2009) was the second most played album, led by the popularity of Bell, Buried in the Nude, Halfway Down, Lights Out, Skull and Starving Dog.
