Nick Cave @ Warfield - Photos and Setlist

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds were gloriously dark, literate and exuberant at the Warfield tonight (Friday, September 19). Red Sparowes [sic] opened with a taut 40 minute set of instrumental post-rock, before the Bad Seeds took the stage around 10:10. The setlist was essentially the same as the San Diego show, with one addition and a few changes in the song order. The show let out a little after midnight. All in all, a very generous helping to a very enthusiastic San Franciscan crowd.

1. Night of the Lotus Eaters
2. Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!
3. Tupelo
4. Today's Lesson
5. Red Right Hand
6. Let Love In
7. Midnight Man
8. Mercy Seat
9. Deanna
10. Moonland
11. The Ship Song
12. We Call Upon the Author
13. Papa Won't Leave You, Henry
14. More News from Nowhere


15. The Lyre of Orpheus
16. Into My Arms
17. Get Ready for Love
18. Hard-on for Love
19. God Is In the House (audience request)
20. Stagger Lee

Personal highlights - Midnight Man and More News from Nowhere were both awesome. God Is In the House was a nice surprise. Red Right Hand was also fantastic. Fun audience sing-along with Papa Won't Leave You, Henry. Tomorrow night's show sounds very very tempting... good thing for my wallet that it's sold out (despite the abundance of tickets on Craigslist).
