We were lucky to be in the packed house greeting Brendan Benson for his second Chicago show of the night last evening. Benson and his band played a set that never lacked for energy, and he proved that he is still one of the masters of that brand of furiously buzzing power pop. (Word is his early show had so much energy it knocked the power out on the whole dang block!) His set took material from his entire solo oeuvre, along with a playful cover of Superdrag's "Sucked Out."
