Headliners Swirlies are a band of gear-head legend. Their dedicated devotees were rewarded with the return of original member Seana Carmody for the first time since 2001, and an accompanying focus on the group's beloved earliest releases followed. 'Two Girls Kissing' and 'In Harmony New Found Freedom' from 1996's "They Spent Their Wild Youthful Days in the Glittering World of the Salons" and 'Bell' and 'Jeremy Parker' from Swirlies debut "Blonder Tongue Audio Baton" were all heavy hitters. (Un)fortunately, the proggy aspects of the band's strange rhythmic changes, weird noises, and so, so much tuning, demand too much from all but the die-hards. The group maintained a cheerful, casual demeanor throughout, aware and apologetic for the strange pacing the tuning placed on a rock audience. Sound collage, comedic letter readings, and fan interaction tried to paper over the cracks. However, a strength of Swirlies' music is in their ear for a riff tied to a beat, and to have all momentum frustrated by the realities of those riffs' creation in odd tunings is, well, frustrating. As their set went on, the crowd thinned out. Those who stayed heard impressively accurate performances of their favorite songs—immaculately constructed and insanely detailed.
