Simple Cavemen set list: April 30, Yalaha Bakery

A rare Sunday appearance at in the courtyard for the Cavemen, performing as 4-piece without drums.

We had a terrific time: Pleasant breezes, Jimmy Carl and D-Squared in their Amish headgear, an appreciative crowd. Our new friend from Sweden offered the band perhaps the best compliment we’ve heard in many moons.

Thank you, sir.
