I never forgot how good One For the Team are on record, but man did my memory fail me on how good they are live! I’d say the only think keeping them from putting on a Matt & Kim-level show is that M&K always look like they’re about five seconds away from exploding. But for four non-exploding kids from Minneapolis, One For the Team put on a hell of a show.
We got a lot of stuff from their new album Ghosts and a few old tracks that I recognized, both sounding equally fantastic. They also took advantage of the intimate venue to keep a good rapport with the audience. And when you’re in Kentucky, that means confessing your love for Ale8 and bourbon. Smart move, guys.
More photos after the break.
