The War on Drugs (7/13/18)

Having seen these guys back in 2014 at the Grog Shop, I knew it’d be a good show - but damn!  The band was superb, but throw in the light show and it’s probably one of the best shows I’ve seen in the Agora!  All the more excited to see these guys at Pitchfork Music Festival this weekend...

"The brass sealed the deal for me. For my money, Jon Natchez's droning ambience on sax took most of last night's set from The War on Drugs to another level of heavy, all-encompassing American rock. Never overdone, it was properly placed in the context of each tune, each jam.

That's essentially how the band works as a whole. Adam Granduciel's delicate compositions are built on a fine layering technique. In the live setting, the band replicates it beautifully.”
