Last Friday I won a little thing to go see Owen play a set at Polyvinyl’s offices in Champaign. There were about a dozen other people who won there, plus the Polyvinyl staffers. It was great! Mike seemed really relaxed. He played mostly songs from Ghost Town (No Place Like Home, An Animal, O, Evelyn…), plus A Trenchant Critique and part of either Bag of Bones or Ugly on the Inside (I forget which, but he stopped part way through). After he played the songs he was planning, he asked if there were any requests and played a bunch more songs, which was unexpected and really awesome. Dispelling the whole Mike-Kinsella-hates-requests thing! I was not going to risk asking for American Football though.  Polyvinyl taped the whole thing and it’ll be up on YouTube eventually. Polyvinyl had lots of framed posters of their releases up…notice the big American Football one behind Mike. After he played, they handed out [anyone who has ever ordered anything from PV should be able to guess this]…Airheads. Awesome. Big ups to Polyvinyl for setting this up.
