  1. My first time here. Do you list songs as the show is in progress? Many friends there tonight so I’m wanting to live along. If you don’t, do you know any place that does?

  2. I live in a totally different timezone to do the real-time set list thingy. It would also increase the hosting bill, as people would be hitting F5/refresh constantly. 🙂

    That’s why I add links to the set list threads, where people talk about set list almost in real-time.
