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