Just when it seemed like we might be in for a fairly ho-hum run through the hits, Matthew Sweet turned out a truly electrified version of “Evangeline.” And from there it was on.
That song is from Sweet’s eternally awesome 1991 album Girlfriend
. It probably would’ve been cool with everybody there if Sweet had just played that record start to finish, as he did on 2011’s Girlfriend
20th Anniversary Tour. But he didn’t come through Kansas City on that jaunt. Indeed, in Sweet’s words: “It’s been some time between electricity and computers since the last time we were in Kansas City.”
