The Districts followed up The Afghan Whigs’ formidable performance with a raucous set from start to finish upstairs.  The Lititz, PA natives played a mix of tracks taken from both their eponymous 2014 Fat Possum debut EP and their self-released 2012 full-length The Telephone.  There wasn’t a single static moment during the entire set, as frontman Rob Grote bounced around the stage with ever-increasing energy, somehow managing to find his way back to the mic just in time.  The band strayed from the album cuts for just one song, placing the dreamier, post-rock undercurrents of “Chlorine” between “4×4” and dynamic single “Rocking Chair.”  Grote pulled out the harmonica for closing track “Funeral Beds,” returning to the song that first put them on the map.  Check out a photo recap below and listen back to the audio.
