Live Set: Daddy Kool Records

The band was on hand January 9th to play a paired down, extra-folky, live set at St.Petersburg's Daddy Kool Records. The performance was in celebration (and promotion) of Brighter In The Dark going on sale in this historical record store. Yellow Tree Studio was also there to capture the performance for NPR's Tiny Desk Contest, and will release footage from the whole show later this summer. 

Big thanks to Manny Kool and the whole Daddy Kool team for having us out–– and to the audience shopping the isles at the show. We really enjoyed it!
