The *Second* Over the Rhine Show Set List

I’ve seen Over the Rhine play live fifteen times now.

Thursday night’s show was a blast. But Friday’s night’s second show in Seattle was one of the very best performances I’ve seen by any band anywhere. They were on fire.

  • Fever
  • I Want You to Be My Love
  • Let’s Spend the Day in Bed
  • Entertaining Thoughts
  • Nothing is Innocent
  • The Trumpet child
  • Who’m I Kiddin’ But Me
  • Trouble
  • And Can It Be
  • Drunkard’s Prayer
  • North Pole Man
  • Goodbye Charles
  • Ohio
  • BPD
  • Orphan Girl

    Hey Jeff,

    Thanks for the lovely post. I agree, we’re definitely in the family category after that wondrous night downtown Seattle. But I think we all have quite a bit of soul in common anyway.

    Thanks for including me in all your fun and celebration. It was a delight to me and I am so excited about Auralia’s Colors. You inspire me as a writer!

    I’ll definitely hope to come up Seattle way when the loneliness hits at those moments and see you all. And you simply must come down to CO sometime and stay for a bit. Hope your autumn is off to a beautiful start.

    aargh, painful I would have enjoyed the second night as well. Loved Thursday but if I could wish for more, they would have played more Drunkard Prayer songs. Glad you were there to be able to enjoy it.

    Hi, Jeff (and Anne),
    Sounds like the concert was amazing, so we heard. Hopefully Joel and Sarah will see you tonight and celebrate with you the grand arrival of your wonderful new book. Our many congratulations and well wishes for a best seller. Hopefully, the gift you receive tonight from Clay and me will last through thousands and thousands of “signings” we hope you are fortunate to give. Since we couldn’t join you to celebrate, we wanted you to know we are there is spirit! What a beautiful and alluring cover. The Lord’s grace and blessing to you as you continue to populate our bookshelves with more great stories!
    Love and blessings to you both!
    Clay and Sally Clarkson
