Scenes From Larry g(EE)'s First Hometown Show Since Playing Jimmy Kimmel.

The scene wasn't quite that of a homecoming at the Prophet Bar on Saturday night — no, Larry g(EE) and Co. haven't performed much in the past month, but they have been in town — but things still felt celebratory nonetheless. And rightfully so: This soul-focused bill also featuring Austin's Soul Track Mind served as Larry g(EE)'s first hometown performance since bringing the house down on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last month.

And, just as they had in front of a national television audience on Monday, December 10, g(EE) and his band of merry soul pranksters again impressed at this affair, once again proving themselves an infectious and enjoyable outfit as they ran through the a set that mixed songs from their Weekends EP with new and older–but-still-not-yet-released cuts. There were guests aplenty, too: rapper Leon The Professional, singer-songwriter Kirby Brown (vacationing back in his hometown since leaving Dallas for New York a couple months ago) and members of rap outfit The Weekend Hustler were among the guests g(EE) welcomed alongside his band onstage.

Soul music, like soul food, is a comforting thing when done right. And throughout the night — from Soul Track Mind's set, which both original material and faithful covers of soul standards, to g(EE) and his band's offering of some updated takes on the genre — this affair indeed comforted.

Very much so.
