T2. The Depression Suite (27) - Only show not played was 4/29/2009. 23 first set appearances. 3 of its 4 second set appearances have come in the last 8 shows.

4. Morning Moon (26) - 20 of 26 have come in the first set.
5. Love Is A First (23) - All but 3 have been in the first set. Almost half have been as the first set closer.
6. Coffee Girl (20) - 7 first sets, 11 second sets and 1 encore. 3 consecutive playings came in the acoustic portion of the show over a four show span from 5/30-6/4. The only WATS song to feature in this portion so far.
7. Frozen In My Tracks (17) - Didn't show up in the set list until 4/29/2009 making Frozen the last song to be played live on this tour from WATS. 3 first sets, 9 second sets, 5 encores. Versatile.
T8. Honey, Please (12) - Played in the first 6/8 shows to start the tour but has cooled off since appearing in only 6 of the last 20 shows. 10 of the 12 have been in the first set and its last 3 appearances were show openers.
T8. Queen of the Furrows (12) - Started slow showing up in the first 2 of 9 shows but has since appeared in 8 of the last 13. 8 of 12 have been in the second set. This song is picking up momentum.

Tidbits:

-The Depression Suite has opened over half the shows on this tour, but has only opened 2 of the last 8 shows. I think this song works anywhere they want to put it and I think we, the fans, are going to be enjoying it for a long time to come.

- It Can't Be Nashville Every Night has only 1 appearance in the last 17 shows (06/06/2009)

- On the Verge has been MIA for 13 shows (05/16/2009)

- If Family Band is the 2nd song in the first set, The Dark Canuck will be an encore tune. This is money. Use it. Bet it.

-Something On has not appeared in 15 shows (05/15/2009)

- 13 of 14 Gift Shop's can be found in the first set. The exception was 05/16/2009 @ Massey Hall. People clapped along to the intro and it fucked the mood & build up. Clapping is gay. This is a tension and release song. Allow the tension to build. Please. If you must clap, go see Dave Matthews and clap away. That's a clap happy bunch. Frat boys fucked that scene. I digress....

- World Container has been played once: 04/29/2009. And that's too bad.

- 4 of the last 6 Coffee Girls have been acoustic

- Grace, too has only appeared in the first set 4 of 17 times. In a Tragically Hip All-Star Game, this is my lead-off hitter.

- Queen of the Furrows has appeared in 4 of the last 5 shows, Bobcaygeon in 5 of the last 6, 7 of the last 9 shows

- The last 2 IAGLIYDWs have been encores

-Blow at High Dough has had an encore slot in 6 of the last 12 shows
