Although Built to Spill‘s most recent album, “There Is No Enemy,” took three-and-a-half years to complete, lead singer Doug Martsch met his audience’s expectations at the Gothic Theatre last night with many favorites from some of their earlier works. Fans yelled requests to hear “The Plan,” a Built to Spill classic, and refused to quit yelling until they got what they wanted.

Opening for Built to Spill was ReVoLtReVoLt, a progressive rock band from Idaho, that unfortunately played for a pretty empty theatre. ReVoLtReVoLt will be touring 42 states with Built to Spill through the beginning of November.

    First time seeing BTS in concert, and it was a wallopin’ good time. Astute fans will notice the band is missing a guitarist. In one of the few utterances from the stage, Doug Martsch noted that Brett Netson (or was it Nelson – like I said , first timer) broke his collarbone.

    Was that a Pavement tune they covered? It was the only song announced I think: “Here’s a non-original.”

    That non-original was Ripple by the Grateful Dead. My first time seeing BTS live. Awesome! Met Doug out in the parking lot before the show, requested Liar and Center of the Universe. Played them both!
