post-crucifixion, baby.

My first (hopefully) annual Nick Cave-themed night at Club Foot went quite smoothly. Of course, my anal and obsessive-compulsive tendencies led me to bring about 15 hours worth of potential Great Songs to Play, but i was able to whittle it all down once the night got going and the requests started pouring in (requests were mostly for 'the hits,' of course).

Setlist is as follows (note: "Nick Cave" typically denotes "Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds," typing all of that out a hundred times is too much!):

If you are a huge Nick Cave fanatic,
check out this insanely comprehensive website.
It hasn't been updated in a while, but there is so much information that it doesn't even matter. This site helped me a lot in researching songs that Nick has covered and bands that have covered Nick songs!
