On Tuesday night I went to see “My favourite band in the whole wide world ever and ever (pretty much)”, The Fiery Furnaces. Not only were they absolutely amazing but right at the end I got a great thing for any fan to treasure – a setlist.

Whather it was my ‘Cabaret of the Seven Devils’ t-shirt that did it, or just my mouthing along to virtually all the lyrics, vocalist Eleanor Friedberger handed the list to me as the bands left the stage.

The other setlist went to a girl I recognised from their last Manchester gig two years ago. On that occasion the band actually applauded her for her intimate knowledge of the lyrics for Automatic Husband.

After a quick superfan high-five at the end we agreed that the drums on the album Widow City are close to the best thing in existence.
