Wye Oak has been one of my favorite new musical discoveries, and the title track from their latest album "Civilian" has been one of my most played tracks in recent months. So I bought my ticket as soon as I saw that they were coming to Brooklyn to perform in between nights opening for The National.
It was a solid set, and it was amazing to see such talent and precision from a two-piece. Met them both after the show, and they were very nice and down-to-earth folks.

The Rock Shop is a smaller venue, so tickets were sold out way in advance and everyone was pretty much right up there at the stage.

Jenn Wasner's guitar pedals on stage. Amazing how many different sounds she's responsible on stage. They also had someone in the sound booth playing other digital tracks.
