They closed with a few singles from all four albums, including "Night Windows," a lullaby that lets bassist Greg Smith (who was, by far, the danciest of the bunch) shine. But the night's high point came earlier, when they brought a young audience member named Max up during "Wellington's Wednesdays" to play a solo. He killed it, and no one onstage could stop smiling.
Neither could Max, who appeared to be getting hugged by approximately 30 friends at once on the street following the show. He seemed like one of the die-hards, and it's safe to assume that -- like a good portion of the crowd -- he would be back the next night, ready for a very personal show in a room holding 500 people.
Quote of the night: "Tonight's going great, right? Not the singing so much, but the playing." - John K. Samson
My plus-one's observation: Walter, the new Muppet in the new Muppet movie, bears an uncanny resemblance to John K. Samson.
Personal bias: John K. Samson.
