Full review to follow. With their new Fade album hewing more to the band's quiet, introspective side, it made sense to really delve into that in a full acoustic set to start the night off. Grouping the night's quiet parts together also helped focus the audience's attention, and it was admirably chatter-free on the floor. Then, the band returned for a longer electrified set and tore it up, mixing a few more new ones with a larger selection of tracks from the back catalogue. There were some interesting re-interpretations (like an acoustic "Autumn Sweater") but for now, let's focus a bit on the new songs.
