Lytle delights crowd by playing old classics too
Lytle and his band closed their set in the Central Predbyterian Church by playing a brass-inflected version of ‘Jed The Humanoid’ from said album, delighting a contingent of hardcore fans of Grandaddy, who split in 2006.
The frontman also played songs from his forthcoming solo album, ‘Yours Truly, The Commuter’ including ‘Brand New Sun’ and ‘Ghost Of My Old Dog’.
As well as ‘Jed The Humanoid’ Lytle played Grandaddy number ‘Stray Dog And The Chocolate Shake’ – and early in the set apologised for saying “shit” in a holy place.
“I have the good fortune in the midst of this solo thing to be playing with people I really like,” he later declared from the stage. “After this show we plan on jumping into a tank full of sharks,” he bizarrely added.
