There's a reason she's been the vocalist for multiple projects, including her Grammy-nominated work on the soundtrack to Les Triplettes de Belleville, because Bonifassi believes in her voice as an instrument, and treats it as such. Her reinterpretation of "Black Betty" had most people in attendance moving — this was definitely one of the dancier crowds of the evening — and the dubstep-undercut "Working Down" was a definite crowd-pleaser. "No More My Lawrd" could have benefited from a more understated performance, as the piano-driven and electronic drum infused cut lost its potency when it would veer into hard rock territory. The situation was reversed during "Go Down Old Hannah" which started off as an effectively more straightforward rock composition, until its electronic backend, which was completely unnecessary.
Still, the crowd loved it and chanted for more, which they got when Bonifassi came back for a quick encore, performed from within the excited crowd. These were seasoned performers who had a great command on their material, who managed to stay true to themselves while being greatly entertaining.
