Not sure if requesting a cover song is untoward, but considering that John Cale played at the Sydney Festival last year, and if your cover of 'Paris 1919' is still in your repertoire, would that be a fitting song to play during your shows at the Spiegeltent at the Sydney Festival from the 19th-21st? At this stage, I'm going to the show on the 19th, and I'd love to hear it. Good luck Down Under!
PLEASE play your cover of This Modern Love tomorrow in Singapore, Owen! It was the first song I heard you play (I know it's not one of your originals, but your take on it blew me away nevertheless), and it would be really nice to hear that song live tomorrow. It would really really make my night - but seeing you would have already done that!
I'll be happy to hear The Butcher too, and This Is The Dream of Win and Regine, if you still play that

I thought this would be the most appropriate place to ask anyone who might know.
So whats up with Beirut and Owen in Toronto on August 2nd and 4th? All the listings I've seen have said "Beirut with Owen Pallett," which leads me to believe that Owen will be playing accompanying parts or just singing during "Cliquot".
If not, is Owen playing as an opening band or will the time between the two artists be roughly 50/50?
Lastly, Owen, if you're reading, would you decline requests as an opening act due to length? If not, are you still taking requests here?
