Mitski came through town a couple weeks ago on her “Solo Tour of Beautiful Places” and while she got to experience the beauty (and stifling humidity) of Savannah, we got a truly beautiful performance in return. Just the artist that Iggy Pop recently called “probably the most advanced American songwriter that I know,” a blue acoustic guitar, amazing songs and an incredibly respectful crowd. Seriously, you could have heard a pin drop at El-Rocko at times. Nice work Savannah.
Katie Von Schleicher and She Returns From War opened, but I missed She Returns…due to parking issues. Anyway, check out Mitski’s new video for “Nobody” from her upcoming album Be The Cowboy, and pics from the show below. I’m pretty sure “Nobody” is the at the time unreleased song she asked us not to put on the internet, right? If you like the video Mitski’s entire discography is highly recommended, particularly Puberty 2. Great stuff, just ask Iggy.
