Most fans werent disappointed, since the three indie-folk masters played for over two hours straight each coming and going from the stage, rotating instruments in a structured jam session of sorts.
Ward captivated with his guitar work and a soulful cover of David Bowies "Lets Dance," while Jamess falsetto was haunting, yet comforting. Obersts portion of the evening began with "Train Underwater" as he boyishly clicked his heels while strumming his guitar and screaming, almost spitting out the words to other love-sour gems like "Ive Been Eating for You" and crowd-favorite "Waste of Paint."
Fresh from the Vote for Change tour, it wasnt a surprise that Oberst mentioned the upcoming election, although one audience member blurted out, "No politics, just music!" Oberst replied, "Fuck you, its all politics, baby," before delivering a passionate "One Foot in Front of the Other."
All three artists returned to the stage for an encore that ended with their alternating vocals on Bob Dylans "Girl from the North Country," leaving fans absolutely breathless and yearning for more.
