In belated news, Mondo Cane gave a top drawer Hardly Strictly Blue Grass Festival performance on their US debut last weekend.

UPDATE: NBC Bay Area glowing review: Sample quote: “Patton crooned like never before, something he has only touched on in earlier bands, where with Mondo Cane, he really gets to stretch his maestro muscles singing these great old Italian tunes that most people in the audience have no idea what are about, and seem to not care at all.”

Stubbadub has it covered here, including the surprise appearance of Trey Spruance.
