WILMINGTON — The Burlington, North Carolina, band returned to Greenfield Lake on Aug. 12.

It was a night of firsts and lasts for the alternative rock outfit: the first show since bassist Matt Laird joined after founding bass player Doug Marshall announced his departure from the band.

This was also one of the last shows with founding keyboard player/trumpet player Josh Kagel. He announced earlier this year he would be retiring from the road. 

The group — also including Ben Vinograd, Casey Cranford, Jesse Hensley, and Nick MacDaniels — played its amalgamation of jazz, reggae, hip-hop, rock, funk sounds, created over the last 14 years and across six albums.

The show also featured Doom Flamingo, a six-piece synthwave band from Charleston, South Carolina.

Below are photos from the show, captured by Tom Dorgan of MoonFrog Media.
