Saint Etienne, live at Wonder Ballroom, Portland, OR

I wasn’t sure I’d ever get the chance to see Saint Etienne live in the U.S. They’ve never really been able to gain pop traction here despite an amazing track record of quality pop songs over the last twenty years. Their latest, Words & Music, ranks high on my favorite albums of 2012. I don’t write about pop music much on here, but it was a great show, and I recommend anyone who has the chance check it out.

Set list (albeit not in exact order, from memory):

Lose That Girl
Who Do You Think You Are?
Burnt Out Car
Haunted Jukebox
Like a Motorway
A Good Thing
When I Was Seventeen
Only Love Will Break Your Heart
He’s On The Phone
Nothing Can Stop Us
I’ve Got Your Music
You’re In A Bad Way¬†
