If there was any doubt that “Weird Al” Yankovic‘s Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour would be anything other than, well, ridiculously self-indulgent (and amazing), Monday’s show at Pabst Theater settled things once and for all. Want old deep cuts? Enjoy “Velvet Elvis” and “Buy Me A Condo.” Want newer deep cuts? Enjoy “Why Does This Always Happen To Me?” and “CNR.” Want “The Biggest Ball Of Twine In Minnesota?” Enjoy “The Biggest Ball Of Twine In Minnesota.”

What else? Oh yeah, Al was great, the band was great, opener Emo Philips was great, and who the hell thought it was a good idea to bring a literal crying infant to a show? Anyway, here’s Monday’s setlist. See you again tonight!
