The Lighthouse and The Whaler pack Grog Shop

The Lighthouse and The Whaler drew a sell-out crowd to the Grog Shop on Saturday night as the Cleveland band marked the release of their second full-length album, This is an Adventure. They kicked off their fall tour with a fantastic 11-song set filled almost exclusively with material from the new release

The new songs are a change from the more subdued folk-pop of the band's self-titled full-length debut but are still marked by the tight constructions and rich harmonies for which The Lighthouse and The Whaler are known (Read our September 2012 Fall Arts Preview story "To The Sea"). 

The band performed the entire new album (although in a different order than the track listing — see the set list below), capping the night with "The Field Song," which frontman Michael LoPresti noted was the first song the band ever wrote. The Grog Shop performance also marked the group's last show with band co-founder Aaron Smith. This is an Adventure goes on sale tomorrow, Sept. 18.
