Has he played at all of the shows, or just in New York?

And just so everyone knows, DaveKent and addingmachine are super good at picking people up at airports; not so good at finding their way around Rochester. And sashwap is one of the nicest people from the internet that I've ever met.

I'm skeptical that he showed up in Rochester...there's not one single mention anywhere else about it...

I saw a mention on YouTube, but it could have been the same person.

What song did he drum on?
It was this freeform jam at the end, and it ended with people throwing drums at each other, Jeff himself threw the bass drum at Theo and Julian.

I am skeptical that I saw him in Rochester. His ghostly form was so ethereal that I could not tell whether or not it was really him, or just an illusion. I remain unconvinced.

that's because some people understand it's not necessary to alert pitchfork & co everytime he steps outside

nor is it necessary I guess to give any detailed information to people on this message board other than casual one line statements...

haha next time Jeff decides to give a surprise performance for the first time in 7 years at 2 am in a dark club in the middle of a crowd that is hovering over him while he sits on a chair far from the stage lights, someone will have to remember to pull out a night-vision video camera or handy-dandy portable floodlights.

Other videos were taken, too, and will no doubt appear. They might be better. But who knows.

what would be really awesome, and more productive than whining about the video, would be if someone extracted the flash-lit "stills" from that video and presented them in a gallery. I'm too lazy and unskilled but I would be full of gratitude for anyone who felt motivated to do this. Since the flashes provided the only significant light, the same "stills" should appear in every video -- they would differ only in viewpoint. Hence the gallery you create would provide a useful and lasting visual record of that performance.

(edit: I did not take that video. I'm just surprised that people are criticizing it. Maybe you had to be there to appreciate the challenges of videoing such an event.)

i tried to take a couple stills out (since i'm in them) but the youtube compression makes them look like shit. i am sure the video isn't that high res to begin with, but having the original file would probably be helpful.

im guessing if he plays a nmh song at the show in chicago there will be high quality video of it. pfork would be dumb not to be all over that shit. i just have a feeling.
