With Thursday night’s sound issues now figured out, the band dove into their second night at the Roxian with a vengeance. After starting with “Morph Dusseldorf”, the band dove into “King Of The World” and navigated through “We Like To Party” before returning to “King Of The World”. New debut “Freebis Slinky” was up next, before “Above The Waves” brought the first set to a close.
Another Slinky-themed new original, “Electric Slinky” opened the first set before an exciting “42” > “The Great Abyss” > “42” kept the momentum and creativity high. This inverted rendition of “The Great Abyss” featured a jam surrounding Strandbar and Delorean Dynamite by Todd Terje, as previously played by the band’s all-improv alter-egos, Tractorbeam. After debuting yet another new song, “Station”, the band closed the set with a rousing “House Dog Party Favor”. A “Portal To An Empty Head” encore brought the evening to a close.
