Cass McCombs comes off as a mysterious character to me. That was just the feelings I got from listening to his recorded material. Seeing him live confirmed my suspicions. He was focused solely on his performance, and boy did he deliver.
The set was just him on the electric guitar, and another guitarist playing acoustic. The set had a dark depressing overtone with songs like “Bradley Manning”, which covers the wikileaks informant. Most of the set was new, as McCombs had pieces of paper at his feet that looked to be reminders or notes of some type. A highlight was a song titled “Morning Star”, which was powerful in many ways, and had me hypnotized for the entire duration.
