Last night, The Slip performed the first show of a two show run at NYC’s Brooklyn Bowl. The setlist featured a mix of old and new songs, including two debuts with Sam Cohen of Yellowbirds/Apollo Sunshine on second guitar. Cohen also sat in on “Motherwolf” and rejoined the band again for the first encore, “Get Me With Fuji.” The band has the night off before they play The Met in Pawtucket, RI tomorrow night.
Here’s last night’s setlist via SlipLive.

It’s been some time since the last Slip show. But starting tonight, the avant-garde rock trio returns to the road for a pair of shows in their native Northeast. The trio will make their debut appearance at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl later this evening, followed by a performance at The Met in Pawtucket, RI on Saturday.
To celebrate The Slip’s return, I’ve turned the tables on my good friend Lucas Samuels from The Artist Mixtapes. Generally, Lucas has bands and artists curate an 8 song playlist for an ‘Artist Mixtape.’ But for today, I asked Lucas (my Slip mentor) to select some of his favorite Slip jams to share with DGB readers. Clocking in at just over an hour, this playlist will help those less familiar become familiar, and allow us die-hard fans to hold out until tonight. Thanks, Lucas! Be sure to head over to his blog where he is constantly discovering promising new acts from all walks of music.
Hope to see many of you at the show tonight!
