In the late '90s, the lounge/swing revival led to more than a few regrettable things: Cherry Poppin' Daddies. Grown men wearing bowling shirts in public. Vince Vaughn. But before the shit hit the fan, a few bands commanded an appealing blend of old-time cocktail music with more modern, aggressive sounds. Seattle's Nightcaps released a single on Sub Pop and a couple solid albums, 1997's Split and 2000's Get On, before calling it a day. The quintet recently reunited for a Seattle show and are now repeating the trick for Portland, hometown of singer Theresa Hannam and drummer Dan Cunneen. Nightcaps have also just released a new compilation, In the Live Room, which rounds up their singles, plus a 2001 live session for KEXP. NED LANNAMANN
