Rock 'n' roll and stolen cars: those were the night's bookends. But first, the rock 'n' roll...

It's always a treat to find a bill shared by three unique and as talented acts. It's even more of a treat when the show's intensity builds. There was an arc to this show that, if I were given to hyperbole, could be described as sublime. Because I am not, I will just say that I saw one heck of a show that was at different times (in no particular order): meandering, impressive, exciting, comedic, disappointing, dark, exhilarating, and ultimately really freaking good.
