Tuesday Nov 26, says Songkick.
Tickets on sale Wednesday.
I have this sneaking feeling that my life will be complete when I see the Plan play The Ice of Boston
I'm also now asking myself when Q And Not U are going to reform
Fuck yeah! So excited for this. Massive shame that it clashes with El-P + Killer Mike though
on Monday 25th November as well.
seeing them 3 times this week, im so excited having been 8 the last time they played in the UK.
also theyre taking requests on twitter :'D
just going to Electric Ballroom, getting really excited now. Sounds a bit churlish but I hope they don't focus too much on the new album at the expense of the classics, although the prospect of Girl O'Clock and Back & Forth has got me grinning like a madman :)
living in song especially
but obviously i had to request back and forth to make sure :p
was fucking great live as you expected. The chorus killed it.
was great the other night. I requested Face of the Earth, which was also suitably fantastic. I love the fact that they seem to be treating this tour as a break from their day jobs, and hence enjoying it for what it is. Genuine guys.
was one of those moments when they started playing it where I'd forgotten how much I like that song.
I wonder if they've played anything off Travistan since most of those songs were originally Plan songs that were supposed to be on the originally planned follow up to Change.
Though, maybe that's because I requested Academy Award, Manipulate Me & 8 1/2 Minutes like the GREEDY FOOL I AM.
Does anyone want to buy two tickets? I know it's not quite sold out yet so willing to reduce the price a little.
Today is a good day.
This was excellent. Totally reignited my love for them. Even the new stuff sounded great live.
Also, all hail Rob!

PM Me, can't go and would rather someone used it.
i just forked out some stirling for a ticket
Real excited about tomorrow!
and see me dancing like a loon as i have done all week for 45 minutes.
a life of possibilities was so good
Gonna struggle to get anything done today
8.15pm - Fear Of Men
9.30pm - The Dismemberment Plan
11.00pm - Curfew
this show's gonna be the best
Do the Standing Still blasting through my headphones. Might get some noodles before the gig. Incredibly excited right now!
to the Camden Eye for cheap pizza then onwards ONWARDS ONWARDS
HOW BRILLIANT WAS THAT.
highlight for me was definitely the Back and Forth into Girl O Clock into You Are Invited. everything was top notch though and they might be one the tightest band ive ever seen? good vibes all around. new songs were superb, especially waiting and living in song. all i can think about is seeing em in glasgow on thursday (where im sure there'll be a full on traditional Ice of Boston stage invasion)
fear of men were really really really excellent also, shame there werent too many people there for it.
(managed to cop a setlist, they played 'invisible' instead of Spider in the Snow and The Dismemberment Plan Gets Rich instead of 'I Love A Magician)
It was really really good, but not a patch on that Brighton show.
+ Hearing songs like Girl O'Clock, The Other Side & Gets Rich which were as good live as I'd hoped.
+ The sound being great (apart from on Daddy Was A Real Good Dancer, but that's a shit song anyway) and being able to hear Travis's voice clearly.
+ The crowd finally getting into it for You Are Invited, Back & Forth and Gets Rich.
+ OK Jokes Over and its Hot Chip Over & Over / Lorde Royals medley sounding about 50 times better than on recording.
+ Good, positive, friendly atmosphere through the majority of the crowd.
+ It was the fucking Dismemberment Plan playing Dismemberment Plan songs.
+ No queues at the bar.
- The cunty security properly roughing up the guy who eventually made it on stage. Eric stopped playing to intervene as they were being so cunty. I have no idea what audience the security thought they were dealing with, but London riots this was not.
- No stage invasion allowed, other than three who slipped through (hats off to them).
- Never seen such a badly attended show at The Electric Ballroom, could have done with a smaller venue. The lack of demand makes me think that this will be the last time they'll be able to travel across the Atlantic.
- Fucking London crowds and Doing The Standing Still being absent from the setlist despite being so appropriate. Saw one guy having a word with the guy next to me because he was dancing too much. Fucking London.
- Too much off the new album.
Kinda disappointed there wasn't a full scale invasion, but like you said, bastard security guys. Eric motioning to them to let me up was great, they were so pissed off! Very satisfying. And really fun having a little boogie on stage!
You guys have pretty much mentioned everything that made that one of the best gigs of the year for me. Really enjoyed some of the new ones to my surprise, especially White Collar White Trash and Mexico City Christmas. Highlight (other than Ice of Boston) was probably You Are Invited, set seemed to go to another gear after that. Shattered after journey back home but massive grin thinking about the whole night
Three bouncers piled on you and you still had a massive grin on your face!
Maybe good story to tell the kids about when they ask "Daddy, what's a dismemberment plan?"
but i didnt even make it over the barrier cos the bouncers were giving crazy death stares.
yeah it was weird how little dancing there was for such a clearly dance-orientated performance. *didnt stop me tho*
As I did make a sudden agreement with some guy to attempt the stage invasion for Ice Of Boston only to get to the barrier and see the bouncers poised for combat.
one of you anyway.
Everyone tried and orangjuice amdabes
Took one look at the security guard and went back. So that was probably one of you. Another guy jumped over and landed on his back on the metal barrier supports, then got headlocked.
Well, maybe not that unlikely considering how sparsely populated the gig was...
enjoyed that alot more than I thought I would, only kind of dabbled in them in the past but that was probably the best gig ive been to this year
they're clearly rubbish now :P
Banquet and last night. Tempted to go and get a coach to Bristol but it looks less likely by the minute. According to Eric, they're over for a European festival or two next summer. But yeah, never seen Electric Ballroom so empty and there might have been 25 people at the instore?
You Are Invited, Gyroscope, The City and The Ice of Boston being huge highlights obviously. Daddy Was a Real Good Dancer is so fucking shit. Not huge on the new album, but that sounds like a track by The Feeling.
you are invited's last verse brought a tear to my stone face, that never happens
One of the best gigs I can remember. Gyroscope, Back And Forth and You Are Invited were all pretty euphoric.
What last night made me realise is that Emergency & I is pretty much one of the most perfect things ever released. It's witty and playful and goofy and at the same time it says some incredibly profound things about twentysomething existence and human nature and all that stuff. And musically it's all over the place but holds together brilliantly as a whole. And no one else could have pulled it off, really.
It's a Dismemberment Plan show! Dance, smile, sing, at least look vaguely interested when a band is giving 100% to entertain on stage. Thank god the stage invasion at the end happened (may have accidentally tripped up Travis at one point but smooth recovery and all)
She spent 90% of the gig on her phone and then had the cheek to use her band's twitter account to moan about the gig. I hope their comeback show on Saturday goes terribly as a result of this.
so angry :D
Yes it is. It really annoyed me. Doesn't read very well in hindsight does it haha! I was pretty pissed in my defence.
perhaps not then?
Which Travis enjoyed, but I'm sure they were still being sincere. They clearly loved playing the show, but there was a distinct lack of crowd involvement which spoiled it a bit I think. Basically it surprised me as much as anything. I thought it would be half full (it was slightly more than that) but that EVERYONE there would be going mental for it. As it was most people weren't even singing along to the likes of You Are Invited or What Do You Want Me To Say?
The stage invasion was ace though, and obviously it can be much easier to suss out how involved/not involved the crowd is when you are in the crowd rather than when you are on stage with lights in your face.
so so good
D Plan <333333333333333333
how were my boys?
acquitted themselves really well
+ covered a husker du song!
that used to be fun. Glad though, even if slightly jealous/missing home more than ever
but you're in ISDP who are fucking great though
and I am real happy about how it worked out in that regard, but it's quite tough to see something you built from a city you love start to get opportunities like that without you.
Being in a band is like being a relationship and you've just seen your ex at a party chatting and laughing with a new man on her arm
I told here I was sorry I came
but she looked at me with a glazed smile and said
"YOUUUU AAARRREEEE INVITTEEEED"
someone's been listening to a lot of D-Plan recently
