Blitzen Trapper

When: 2:30ish

Where: Broad Street Stage

Blitzen Trapper pump out a mean record full of '70s-guitar noodlings, harmonies, and foot-stompin' melodies. But on stage this afternoon -- an army of six -- the band tripped over itself (three synthesizers?) en route to the subtle layerings of their studio fare. They were at their best when they kept it simple.
