Sumac @ National Sawdust - 09/10/2018

National Sawdust is an interesting room. It's wider than it is long and feels very "designed" and futuristic as a space. I assumed a lot of the strange paneling was to create acoustics but the sound wasn't particularly amazing or out of the ordinary. Dalek opened but unfortunately I forgot to record it. Sumac's was a an absolute triumph of a performance. I felt like there were sections of the songs that were set up for improvisation before returning to huge riffs that glued the compositions together. It's amazing seeing musicians that I have been following through their careers reach such an incredible level of artistic mastery. Enjoy.
