I've heard this quoted a few times now, but I don't think Pete was right.  Didn't Petra Haden perform the whole Sell Out album live a few years ago?

This is such a shame.  Pete does exactly what we've been asking for (ie: surprise us with performing an old unexpected rarity), and then a reviewer goes and chastises him for it.  

Hopefully, next time, Pete will try only stick rarities into the middle of his set.  And if there are members of the press in the audience, only end his show with WGFA. (Sarcasm alert.)
