Electic southwestern rock band Calexico played a lively Free at Noon set today at World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington. The Arizona-based seven-piece performed a set of songs mostly drawn from their new record Algiers, but dipped back to 2003′s Feast of Wire for “Sunken Waltz.” Check out a photo gallery of the performance above, take a look at the setlist below and listen to the concert in its entirety here (via the WXPN media player). Catch Calexico tonight at Union Transfer, when they perform with Dodos.
