The show itself proved to be one enormous highlight. The band called this set their "super set" which they had been crafting over the past couple of shows on tour. It consisted of old gems and a large majority of the band's new album, "Naomi," with a few good jams thrown in for good measure.
Derek Fudesco's peculiar, lovable hammer-on guitar style matches beautifully with the smooth bass from new member Morgan Henderson (formerly of Fleet Foxes). The addition of bass adds so much to fill out the sound of the Cave Singers' older repertoire without making any drastic changes to their minimal grooves. The new album is still undeniably Cave Singers, no doubt.
Bleeding Rainbow opened with super-energized indie-punk songs that were sonically all over the place -- a great juxtaposition from the newer, reserved material from the night's headliners.
