This was their first song last night. (The onomatopoeia interjections seem to be a homage to this song with Brigitte Bardot.)

I loved how much their songs varied from one to the next and the banter between Sean and Thomas. After the odd French rap, for instance, they played this:

Of course, the moment I think people will most remember was when Sean covered one of his dad’s songs. (That’s him singing backing vox, with Rufus on lead.) Talk about shivers. Those lyrics – though inherently hopeful – have certainly taken on an air of sadness, too.
