The We Shared Milk were taking a hiatus over the summer and now they're back! They open a night of eclecticism with heartfelt rock tracks, like "No Shit," which feels like a rough-around-the-edges modern version of Van Morrison's "And It Stoned Me," and some songs that sound like Alien Lanes-era Guided by Voices with shreddier guitar licks. They've got something beautiful going on. They then give the stage to Hustle and Drone, Ryan Neighbors' (ex-Portugal. The Man) insanely likeable new beat-based indie-pop project. They're followed by Seattle-based cabaret-pop ensemble Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground, who bring gentle melodies to elaborate buildups and surprises. It also doesn't hurt that their last project featured covers of some of my all-time favorite pop songs by Blackstreet, Hall and Oates, Nu Shooz, Teena Marie, and more. ROCHELLE HUNTER
