The have been having a wonderful year in 2015, despite only playing a handful of shows. This past weekend in Syracuse was no exception, destroying the college fueled town over two nights. The couldn’t have been more different, offering an eclectic experience to the concert goer. On Friday night, took the stage in a literal shed, complete porta-potties and picnic tables. Meanwhile, the Saturday show offered a three storied theatre that had great acoustics and premium sight lines. Best of all, the second set brought disco-themed mashups supported by a horns section and female vocalist. Considering the polarizing nature of this band, I’ll save you any specific song recommendations. Just consider that having seen this band consistently since 1998, I will easily state this was one of the best two-night runs I can recall.
