After opening with “You Think I Ain’t Worth a Dollar, But I  Feel Like a Millionaire,” and “No One Knows” from their 2002 album Songs for the Deaf, the band drew heavily from their new record, . . . Like Clockwork, hitting “My God is the Sun,” “I Sat By the Ocean,” “If I Had A Tail,” “Smooth Sailing,” and “The Vampyre of Time and Memory.”
