Courtney Kaiser and Ben Cartel like to do this thing toward the end of their live shows where they walk around, un-mic’ed, singing and strumming to each and every person in the club. If you’re not prepared, it can kind of freak you out. In Chattanooga two years ago, they silenced an exuberant crowd, who afterward cheered their closing tactic as so much more than a performance stunt. No telling what the Brooklyn couple added for this tour supporting their newest, Secret Transit, but rest assured Kaiser, who toured with John Mellencamp for three years, is fearless in the face of strangers. —Mat Herron
