With more than three decades worth of experience, 10,000 Maniacs brought their folk-rock vibes to SF last Thursday for a headlining show at The Independent.

Delivering plenty of fiddle-magic sounds that were entwined harmoniously with guitar, beats and keyboards, the six-piece band, which formed in Jamestown, N.Y., offered a rip-roaring set full of 90’s nostalgia as well as new creations with a packed, dance-bopping crowd on hand.

And despite not having a supporting act to warm up the audience, they had all of the 40-somethings in the house bouncing and grooving by the time they performed “More Than This” — a cover of Roxy Music’s 1982 single — from their sixth LP Love Among the Ruins.

Setlist:
The Candy Everybody Wants
Like the Weather
