The Sea and Cake played a sold-out show Saturday at the Doug Fir, and I'm gonna go ahead and speak for everyone and say that it was a pretty magical night. As emotionally rich as their songs tend to be, musically they are a talented bunch of dudes who aren't afraid to show you that they still know how to get sweaty like the best of 'em.

Lia Ices warmed up the room with her rich voice, and stripped-down arrangements that sounded closer to Beach House than anything on her record. She sent out good vibes with two very large crystals set up on her keyboard stand. Read what Ned wrote about her.

The only thing that would have made this show better? If the Doug Fir had put their nice lighting set-up to use.

More after the jump!
