Sylvan Esso played two sold-out shows at Brooklyn Steel last week with support from Lucy Dacus (photos of night 2). Lucy Dacus kicked off the show with her raw indie rock sounds. The Virginia-based singer played songs from her debut album, No Burden. Dacus has quickly gained a loyal following in her debut years, with fans singing along to favorites like “I Don’t Wanna be Funny Anymore” and “Direct Address.”
Sylvan Esso then took the stage and performed a perfect mix of songs from their latest album, What Now, and their wildly successful self-titled debut LP. The show was packed with dancing and the crowd singing along at the top of their lungs. They played new hits such as “Die Young” and “Radio,” and closed out the show with “Play It Right.” This band has consistently delivered some of the most incredible indie-pop songs and are a pillar within their genre. Their newest album is sure to be a favorite of 2017.
