Drinks, the duo of Cate Le Bon and Tim Presley (White Fence), brought the skronk to Market Hotel on Friday night (12/14), which was one of just a few shows they played this year in support of their second album, Hippo Lite. Backed by a full band, Drinks sounded a little fuller than they do on record and played a nice mix of their two LPs. They were also selling homemade joke books at the merch table with proceeds going to the Woolsey Fire Recovery. You can check out lots of fan-shot video and setlist from Market Hotel below.

Also on the bill: Eleanor Friedberger, who released Rebound earlier this year, and openers BLKLN whose no wave blasts were a good primer for Drinks. Pictures from the whole night are in the gallery above.
