Set list for September 3, 2010

As a sneak preview of what we’re likely to play at our upcoming Pygmalion set (Saturday, September 25, Mike ‘N’ Molly’s in Champaign, Illinois), here’s what The Viper and His Famous Orchestra played recently at a welcome back happy hour for graduate assistants at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, hosted on Friday evening, September 3 by the Rob Henn-affiliated Teaching Assistants’ Association.

Set #1

  • I Left My Liver in Libertyville
  • Big Headed Small Minded Man
  • Winnebago Bay
  • Sharkin’
  • My Seafaring Lassie
  • Ich Bin Berlin (The Sundown Song)
  • Das Kapital
  • One Big Union
  • Ballad of the Henry 55
  • Whispering

Set #2

  • First Round Polka
  • Randolph St.
  • Sharkin’
  • Party in the U.S.A.
  • Stopper in My Hand
  • Last Call Waltz

We played in the Tripp Commons room on the 2nd floor of the Memorial Union. And playing there, as well as trawling through the bowels and the freight elevators of the Union, brought back lots of memories of my time as an undergraduate and a Union rat in Madison. Painful, awful memories. Thanks a lot, T.A.A.!
