In further tribute to late City Museum founder Bob Cassilly, Evan Sult fashioned a t-shirt that read "Thank You BC".
Sleepy Kitty's Paige Brubeck effortlessly alternated between slinky chanteuse and angsty rock girl, often within the confines of a single song.
The bulk of the sold-out crowd showed up early and was rewarded with a stellar set by the local duo. Based on the comments overheard at the merch table, this was the first exposure to Sleepy Kitty for many attendees.
Brubeck uses a series of live loops and effects to augment the duo's sound.
In addition to rock shows, The Luminary Arts also hosts art exhibits -- sometimes in the same room. Between sets, attendees gazed at photos, video displays and art in motion throughout the venue.
Greg Saunier kicked off Deerhoof's set with a syncopated assault on his minimalist drum kit.
