Full review to follow. Renowned for touring with an ever-shifting pick-up band of friends, it was no surprise to see that Jim Kilpatrick had drafted Ross Miller and Ian Kehoe (both of whom had been on stage multiple times already during the evening) as well as once-and-future Constantine Will Kidman. That lineup gave Kilpatrick's songs a bit more garage-rock snarl, though never so much as to overwhelm their underlying geniality — which is to say there were no cha-cha-cha's to be had this time 'round. The set (short, as were all of the evening's performances) ended with a couple covers, including an homage to label-prefiguring Attack in Black (with Daniel Romano joining in).
