would someone to be willing to send them on to me, I'd really appreciate it. 
here's what I'm looking for...

Sailing Away
Perfect Heaven Space
Say Hello
Chances
My Last Chance
Up the Junction
You Bring Me Down
Is this Love

girlsinger: a recap for you

the show at the BofA Pavillion in Boston last night was AMAZING. always is. here's the recap:

They played: (these are in no particular order with the exeption of the opening song and the encore)

Selfish Jean
Love Will Come Through
Battleships
All I Wanna Do is Rock
My Eyes
Big Chair
Closer
Good Feeling
Side
Eyes Wide Open
Turn
Sing
Driftwood
Writing to Reach You
As You Are

Encore:
Flowers in the Window
Humpty Dumpty Love Song
Why Does it Always Rain on Me?

As Fran said, a good mix of "oldies and newies." That was only the second time they played Big Chair live. As the show started, the theme to Rocky played and they came out from the back of the house running down the aisles! Here I am, so mad I don't have an aisle seat to get a hand slap. But they couldn't have been more than 10-15 feet away. When they got onstage, Fran and Dougie were fake-sparring. Too cute.

Before they played Good Feeling, Fran introduced Klaus, the keyboard player and announced that it was his big night because he was going to play the piano solo. Basically what he said: "In Travis we always feel that playing under a bit of pressure brings about a better performance. That's why we're asking for some audience participation: when the solo comes around, I want everyone in the house to point their fingers at Klaus in time with the music and yell 'Klaus! Klaus! Klaus!' Klaus is special because he's from Sweden so he's always cool. So I need you to yell with a bit of anger...channel an old viking who's just gotten his dried fish stolen from him. Can you do that?" They also spelled Klaus' name in lights behind the band, only with a 'C' because the lights couldn't do 'K.' So when the solo roles around, the entire audience, is yelling 'KLAUS! KLAUS! KLAUS!' and the band is cracking up. Then as the number ended, the lights went down save for a small spot on Klaus and he was caught unawares. As the lights came up again, Fran says "That was brilliant!! Everything's dark but Klaus and he's going 'huh?'"

At one point, Fran warns to "never cross the axes of rock" but that he's gonna do it anyway and he and Andy cross the necks of their guitars to make a crazy loud sound. A few minutes later, Fran finds the sound messed up on his guitar as he's starting the Driftwood, and in the middle of the verse says "See? I told you never to cross the axes of rock."

The encore was great. The whole band, including Klaus, lined up behind Fran and backed him up (sans instruments) while he sang Flowers in the Window. Fran also showed us that he "drew blood" for us on his arm while rocking out. Then, during Why Does it Always... Fran stops before the last chorus and tells us that at every show they're asking everyone to "do the pogo which basically means jumping up and down" during the last chorus. He reminded us that he was bleeding so we had to do it for him and that were marksmen up in the rafters to take out anyone who wasn't jumping. It was fun to see everyone jumping up and down with the band.

They have so much energy and you can see how much they love what they're doing that you can't help but have a fabulous time. The band all seemed to be in great moods and they rocked out, as usual. It was disappointing to see that the Pavillion wasn't even close to selling out, but you couldn't tell from their performance. I love seeing these guys...it's a must whenever they're in town. Or anywhere close. I really want to blow off this Dispatch show tomorrow night in NYC and try to get tickets to Travis' show at Irving Plaza instead!! I love them so much!

oh! I just found out that the show at the 9:30 Club in D.C. will be broadcast live on NPR Monday night!

girlsinger: opening act?

I'm seeing the boys in Boston tonight and I was wondering if anyone can tell me who's opening for them. Why don't they list this info anywhere (for anyone)? Help!

melindameow: Dougie's back, and Webcam

Travis are in the studio once again working on material from their untitled 5th studio album, and Dougie's doing his studio diaries again via the Travis Web Team on the messageboard:

http://travisonline.com/travis/msgboard/msg_index.html

And in other exciting news, it looks like there will be a webcam in the studio between now and next Friday when this session ends. They tried to launch it today, with messages from Fran to boot, but after some technical difficulties, it looks like it might be a while until it's up and running, but here's the URL:

I'm really happy to see some more action from my favorite band. The last 2 years with no gigs or new tunes has been full of other great musical finds and shows, but really, there is just no substitute for your favorite band.
