Paige Brubeck and Evan Sult did not disappoint, Sleepy Kitty thrased through a set that had heads bobbing, hips swaying and inspired a stylish man with plaid pants to do leg kicks near the front of the stage. Prior to sitting down at his drums, Sult gave a posthumous shout out to Bob Cassilly, the creator of the City Museum who was found dead from an accident at Cementland earlier in the day, and sported a t-shirt with a "Thank You Bob" message crafted out of white tape on the front.
Next up were the veterans of the night, Deerhoof, a band that has been around for almost two decades. By that point, the stage crowd at The Luminary stretched to the beer and wine line at the back of the venue. They proceeded to rip through an energetic set with all members of the band either bouncing, twisting or performing seemingly synchronized leg movements reminiscent of the Irish river dance. The audience approved.
