As I sit here writing this I am watching Dave Grohl and Co. rip through their Austin City Limits performance, this time on a small screen rather than real life, and the show has lost none of the impact that it had live. The best set I saw in all of 2008, the video is a slightly abbreviated and cherry picked version of the set list below, starting with Young Mans Blues.
Best of all, this time there wasn't a packed studio with everyone straining to see over the crowd, the cameras literally putting you in Dave's lap. I can't wait to get the Blu-Ray of this show to watch it again.

No, I didn't see myself in it.
