It's exciting enough that Band of Horses have decided to pack a Cruzan Amphitheatre-sized show into Revolution this evening after the Kings of Leon totally bummed everyone out. But Benjamin Bridwell and the guys put out a promise of "a special treat" for the attendees, as well.
This additional enticement turns out to be a lengthy list of "deeper cuts" that the band has agreed to add to tonight's set, based upon votes from fans. A couple tips from BOH:
- Don't pick the popular songs, because they'll be played no matter what.
- "START REQUESTING NOW, WE STOP TAKING SUBMISSIONS AT 5PM EST TODAY!"
We'll give you the rest of what you need to know below courtesy of "a sad man complaining at 80 beats per minute."
These are the songs you have to choose from:
Hi again friends, we thought it'd be cool to try something a little
different for tonight's show in Ft. Lauderdale. We hadn't really planned
on playing too many of the "deeper cuts" on this tour because duh,
we're playing shorter sets to a lot of people that don't know who we are
and may not care to hear a sad man complaining at 80 beats per minute.
BUT YOU CAN NOW!!!!
Attached is a list of all the songs that we can
possibly play from our catalogue. Since we have some extra time on our
hands, we'd like you to choose a few that you'd like to hear. Pick
something that might not be in our usual setlist. (don't waste your
choices on the more popular songs, we're going to play those anyway)
START REQUESTING NOW, WE STOP TAKING SUBMISSIONS AT 5PM EST TODAY!
help us relearn some songs or at least witness us fail miserably in
trying. Either way, we'll get this thing rolling again and you might
hear your favorite song! See ya tonight!
Head to this link, and leave your suggestions in the comments before 5 p.m. And if "Dilly" isn't played tonight, you have no one to blame but yourself.
