Electro pop duo Sylvan Esso will be bringing their traveling dance party to Surly Brewing Festival Field on Friday, July 20th. This will be the second show of the summer series at Surly run in conjunction with First Avenue. There will be a bunch of local food trucks and lots of Surly brew flowing.
Sylvan Esso began as a chance meeting, followed by a couple of risky cross-country relocations that coalesced into ten songs. It became very clear early on that these songs were the product of sheer alchemy; Amelia’s effortlessly acrobatic melodic reflections complimented Nick’s dynamic compositions in ways that were as unlikely as they were undeniable. When it started it was whisper quiet, a slight frame, something almost domestic but gleaming with excitement. Then it made contact with the air.
The show is sold out, but keep checking the First Ave website, as tickets have a way of becoming available.
