I've talked to some of the other people at the Fargo gig and none of them are familiar enough with Daath's work to provide a set. Sorry; I tried.
As far as the Cynic/DF controversy goes I think it has a lot to do with people's pre-conception of the bands based on studio output. The truth is that musically speaking BOTH bands are performing very well. I know I personally raked Cynic over the coals but if you don't care AT ALL about showmanship or stage presence the Cynic gig was probably very good. To me there's nothing lamer than professional performers who seem terrified to be standing in front of an audience.
