The Milk Carton Kids - Live from Lincoln Theatre

Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale, otherwise known as The Milk Carton Kids, are one of the most popular acts on the neo-folk scene and here in this live performance film they present a generous selection of songs mostly drawn from their 2013 The Ash & Clay album.

The duo is often likened to Simon & Garfunkel and while they're hardly just a clone of that pair, songs like "The Ash & Clay" demonstrate clearly why the comparison is made. "Years Gone By" though is more of a nod to the Everly Brothers while "Honey Honey" shows that the guys know their way around a bluegrass riff too.

The songs here, though filled with energy, are mostly quiet, and while there is not a ton of stage patter between songs Ryan displays his wry wit throughout, especially amusing when he demands "all eyes on me!" at the beginning of the Pattengale guitar showcase "Girls Gather Round."

The guys sneak fan favorite "Michigan" from the Prologue album into the mix but the show finishes with more from The Ash & Clay including "Snake Eyes," "Heaven" and the subdued show-closer, "Memphis."
