Mates Of State, the husband-and-wife duo of Kori Gardner and Jason Hammel, stopped in for a performance at Rough Trade NYC on October 19, marking their first live show in NYC in quite some time.

The group have no new album out (though they did release the You’re Going To Make It EP last year via Barsuk Records) but just gave us a 16-song set of all their best material. They’re long overdue for a new album (it’s been nearly six years since their last album, Mountaintops) so hopefully this show was a sign that a new album is just around the corner in 2017.

Find their setlist posted below, along with a gallery of photos from their performance.
