I think about this one quite often, so it’s probably my favorite. I love the impromptu nature of it. Just a couple dudes singing on the side of a road as cars drive past.

This might be cheating because I actually took this video but I remember watching it an insane amount of times after the show. That song has always hit really hard for me.

If not that one, it's probably this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqb9Og6l8sQ
It's the last Noah's ark, so everything has got to fit.

I spent like a few hours looking for this 2 min video of the first half of In Stitches. Back then I guess it was like 2007-ish, very pre-Branches and post-FMP, when Dave was playing a lot of solo electric shows. I actually want to say I remember that this was at the Exit/In. He had his killer blazer on and a Tele. And then for the very first time we heard the first half of this song (recorded, at least), this slow thing that Dave ends with this amazing, bold falsetto. Shot from on-stage, stage left, profile. I think Caleb made it (?) and probably took it down, but MATS hasn't been around here in 4-5 years, so there is that.

Figure this video is gone, unless I saved a copy on one of these drives on the floor. We were still guessing song titles at that point so we called it Lethal Drinking. The spontaneity of the video (the initial scramble), the sound of Dave's voice, the sparse guitar, the falsetto. As far as dave recorded live goes, I can't beat it.

[edit]
Well, I was lucky enough to grab and save the audio however many moons ago, so I've had the low-quality mp3 on repeat. Mmm.

Oh, Lord, it's still up. I love all the sevenths. His voice is just right. I love the video, this version of the song, the heavy Tele. Even in this early recording you can feel the weight of the song. Can you hear how quiet it is in there? For a new song. I saw so many of these shows around 2007 and boy, I still love this solo guitar arrangement the most.

Whoa. That’s a good one. I didn’t know he wrote that song so long before Branches came out (in March 09?)

That version above version is my favorite as well. I was also going through some shit in 07 so it hurt more. I felt similarly attached to the original The Poison demo. I get so attached that I can’t do other versions.

Another one on repeat. I can’t for the life of me play a song and tap my foot like that.
