SUSTO came through Savannah last month for yet another awesome show. I’ve run out of superlatives for Justin Osborne’s songwriting and for the Charleston band’s on-stage intensity energy. SUSTO will continue touring relentlessly through the summer, so if you’re out there somewhere, check out the dates and don’t miss your chance. The Savannah show sold out, even though it was a weeknight on the cusp of the summer slowdown, so get your tickets in advance.
I wasn’t familiar at all with Becca Mancari, who was also on this MusicFile Productions/Savannah Stopover bill at The Jinx. I need to dig more deeply into Mancari’s work, but I was super-impressed by the live show. Mancari and her tight band radiated joy — a perfect opener for SUSTO.
Isaac Smith, one of Savannah’s most talented songwriters and bandleaders, opened the show.
