2. The boys are doing work on “Roll Away Your Stone.” This is foot-stomping music. Pure hootenanny.

3. Frontman Marcus Mumford to people watching from their hotel room balconies: “You owe us money. Are you having a nice time up there? Get off your fuckin’ high horse and come party with us!”

4. I know they’re playing “Little Lion Man,” but stop clapping, people. Did you not hear this is a foot-stomping band?

5. The encore starts with Old Crow Medicine Show’s “Wagon Wheel” complete with accordion and mandolin. Mumford experiments with accordion tongue-playing, before moving into “The Cave.” Okay, folks. Now you can clap.
