The album's almost-titular track "Today More Than Any Other Day," kicked the set off, with Beeler easily winning over unsure audience members with his enthusiasm about the milk of human kindness and milk-related grocery shopping dilemmas. Album standouts like "Forgiveness" and "Habit" were just as impressive live.
Beeler was a delight to watch, his voice wavering between that of Ian Curtis and Gordon Gano; he even had an anecdote about his Hillside-branded water bottle, which was apparently picked up at a thrift shop over a year ago before the band had ever even been to the festival. The only disappointing part of the show came when promises of a new song were dashed by time restrictions, leaving the set to close with "Gemini," which was delivered with the ferocity of a finale anyway.
