Obliterating dubstep stutters and crisp electropop pulses. Hazy electrostatic breezes and epinephrine dancefloor turnarounds. Sylvan Esso—the singer Amelia Meath of Mountain Man and the producer (and Megafaun bassist) Nick Sanborn—create “endlessly elastic and three-dimensional” (NPR) songs that conjure up dreamlike conflations of sensuality and sexual depravity, homesickness and wanderlust, nostalgia and immediacy. The latest incarnation of the prolific songwriter Aaron Maine’s Porches. makes “danceable, shimmery pop with rock instruments (keyboards too), in an ‘80s-sorta way.” (Brooklyn Vegan)
Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
