You could have heard a pin drop as the audience hung on every note, scratch, buzz and tweak that Califone's beautifully hypnotic music produced.
From the exaggerated slides of the many guitars used by front-man Tim Rutili, to the numerous odd writing essay sounds coming from percussionist Ben Massarella, every note had a purpose. It all came together like a tiny symphony. Songs like "Trout Silk," "Funeral Singers" and "Lion & Bee" all had a haunting, delicate forcefulness that left you hypnotized and captivated.
William Tyler, who is currently on tour with the band, joined in for a few songs, adding another fluid dimension to the mix with his soft guitar style and harmonies.
