Live Review: Susto at High Watt in Nashville

On Friday night (April 28), the upper room of the Mercy Complex was jam packed full of people, for indie rockers, Susto. The five piece, hailing from Charleston, South Carolina, absolutely brought the house down. It was their first ever, sold out show in Nashville, and the air was palpable with energy.

From the first chorus onward, grins adorned the faces of the band and audience alike, as they belted out the words in harmony. Lead singer Justin Osborne even commented on the crowd full of voices, telling them to keep singing. It was easy to the the giant cat grins on the band’s faces for the rest of the night. Even after leaving the stage, the band returned after several minutes of people screaming non stop for more.

This is a band on the come up. This is a band making music that matters. This is a band that will be so big one day that you’ll brag to your friends about the club dates of 2017.

Currently Susto is on tour behind their 2016 release & I’m Fine Todaywhich dropped on January 13. Everyone needs to catch Susto on tour, and currently can. Some lucky fans will see them open for The Head and the Heart on a four show Florida run. Dates continue from April 29 in Bowling Green, Kentucky at The Warehouse, through August 4 at Pickathon in Happy Valley, Oregon.
