The last time we saw Move Lafitte, the young 5-piece was filling the cozy confines of the Circle Bar with a their signature brand of funked-up math rock and handing out copies of their freshly recorded debut EP. The show was raw but undoubtedly impressive, as the eager band played a strong set of songs that featured intricate guitar compositions that effortlessly morphed into the type of epic horn grooves that evoked Steely Dan’s “Night By Night” as much as they did the swampy jazz-rock native to New Orleans. But this was last spring, and the strength of the performance stayed with us and kept us wondering when we would be able to catch Move Lafitte again. Thankfully, that time has come.
