XX Merge night 3 at Cat's Cradle: Lambchop!

The third band on the third night of XX Merge completely stole the show and no one was ever able to top it. That band was Lambchop. The band played a groovy set that featured ten members including a horn section. The entire crowd were enthralled with the set and band leader Kurt Wagner seemed taken aback numerous times by the thunderous applause in between songs.

The set included the song "Talk Like a Pirate Day" and many other great songs. I'll try to update this with more of the set list a little later. I've added the complete set list below thanks to Craig from San Francisco.

Lambchop will be playing the Reynolds Theatre in Durham on November 13 (Friday the 13th). I highly, highly recommend you go, because they blew mine and many other people's socks off at XX Merge.

Check out photos of Lambchop below. More photos and reviews of night three will follow shortly.

Set list:
