Selena Fragassi, chicago.suntimes.com:

What a year it’s been for the indie pop band out of Philly. Not only was frontwoman Korean-American Michelle Zauner’s debut book, the heartwarming and breathtakingly honest “Crying in H Mart: A Memoir” a New York Times Bestseller upon its initial release, but Zauner herself was named one of Time’s “Most Influential People of 2022.” All of this unfolded as the band’s latest album “Jubilee” was nominated for several Grammys followed by an appearance on the season finale of “Saturday Night Live” in May.

It’s no doubt that the group will ink headliner status by this time next year. Not that they didn’t deliver like they were already at that point in their penultimate set on Saturday night. What’s normally a quartet nearly doubled in size for this performance, with the addition of a live horn section and violinist that created beautiful orchestral layers on tracks like the pleading confessional “Boyish.”

Before the emotive turn, Zauner was having the time of her life beating on a floral-wrapped gong for the opener “Paprika,” and then was seen bouncing around the stage without abandon for big hit “Be Sweet” (in a top decorated with a stuffed animal dog, no less). The conscientious frontwoman also stopped the set a couple of times when noticing an audience member needed a medic and thanked the crowd for “taking care of each other.”

The biggest moment in the set came with the surprise guest appearance by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy whom Zauner hailed as her “favorite songwriter of all time.” The two beautifully duetted on the Japanese Breakfast song “Everybody Wants To Love You” before diving into a tandem treat of Wilco’s “Jesus, Etc,” with Zauner’s beaming smile reflected by the crowd.
