Yeah, that is always annoying; but to be fair they only have about an hours worth of material off their first two records. I suppose they could sneak in some covers, but that isn't every band's thing.

The key to shows where the band is relatively new and short on material is to have strong supporting acts. The Stokes had barely an hours worth of material off their first two records when I saw them, but they brought The Sounds on tour with them, so that made up for their short set.
