This show was great. Being a huge fan since their first stop in town, I was jazzed they were playing the more spacious room of Smalls. The new songs sounded better live than on record IMO and the older tunes were rearranged to add a vibrancy to the material. Throw in getting a shout out from the stage and what’s not to love? Top 5 of the year contender for sure.
Also of note, was the premier opening gig for Gardens & Villa on the tour and what sticks out in my head was the whole ‘Hunger Games’ look dude was sporting with his wooden flute sack. Sweet. Check out more photos here.
