Somewhere In Dallas Today, The Foo Fighters Are Playing A Secret Show.

Two weeks ago today, the Foo Fighters released their seventh studio album, Wasting Light, a disc that has fans going bonkers and critics continuing to hail the band as one of the great rocks acts of its generation.

Deservedly so: Recorded in Foo leader Dave Grohl's garage -- despite the band having easy access to a number of professional recording studios, including Grohl's own home studio -- the album has a distinct back-to-basics appeal.

So, too, does the band's promotion for the release: As part of a Blackberry-backed contest, the band is currently in the throes of a short five-city tour that finds them playing small, private shows in contest winners' garages. Today, the band will be Dallas, performing at some lucky local's home. You're not invited.

Curious as to what you're missing out on, though? Hit the jump, because we've found your answer.

Based on a recent set list from a Yonkers, New York, garage show, it looks like the band is performing Wasting Light in order and in its entirety, followed by three other Foo songs. See the set list from that show in its entirety below.

Bridge Burning
Rope
Dear Rosemary
White Limo
Arlandria
These Days
Back & Forth
A Matter Of Time
Miss The Misery
I Should Have Known
Walk
Best Of You*
Times Like These*
My Hero*

I was fortunate enough to see the show yesterday in the Denver area. It was amazing and the band was really cool and spend time after the show mingling with the fans and signing autographs. I had the opportunity to chat with Dave Grohl for about 10 minutes. He was great.

The set list was definitely different than what you have posted. Grohl said during the show that they weren't really working off of a list.

It was one of the most amazing concert experiences that I've been a part of.

The guys on Sound Opinions thought this album sucked.

Howzabout a tweet from this lucky winner as to a location in exchange for the biggest grateful, tear-filled (Jim Carrey in 'Dumb and Dumber' style) hug a person can give? Come on, you know you want to. Code hashtag: #playingthefoo. I'll be searching.

I'm so very sad. I bought Wasting Light the first day it came out. So awesome.

A friend of mine was the winner and because of zoning issues the prize went to the runner-up. It was a total bummer for my friend.
