“They’re cake pops,” Allison excitedly explained, pulling out a lollipop made of red velvet cake with hardened white icing. They were the handiwork of cellist Dan Lawonn’s wife, a pastry chef (a profession Messersmith himself has dabbled in).

While his band, um, partied, Messersmith made a convincing extrovert, posing for pictures and signing CDs and posters. It wasn’t a large audience, but it seemed like more than half of them hung around.

Once free, he talked a bit about his plans for the First Ave shows but didn’t want to look too far beyond that. “Whatever happens this year, I plan to be making music the rest of my life, hopefully in one sustainable way or another,” he said.

There are those low expectations. He was at least highly confident in one regard: Perbix “doesn’t know what she’s in for.”

Oh, to be young and unaware who Luke Skywalker’s father is.
