The Front Row: Cutty Sark Presents Workman Song and The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger At Brooklyn Bowl
  • THURSDAY, JULY 23, 2015

  • Posted by: Don Saas

We've been to three of these shows now (have you read about Slothrust/July Talk/Drowners or the more recent Eternal Summers/Small Black/Widowspeak shows?) and we've got to say...Cutty Sark Whiskey knows how to curate a showcase. Last week, we were able to shoot (be on the lookout for the concert footage in the weeks to come) another Cutty Sark Showcase at Williamsburg's Brooklyn Bowl. And this time, things got a little psychedelic. The evening began with the (Searching For Sugarman) Rodriguez vibes of the psych-folk act Workman Song. I didn't know Workman Song before that evening, but you can bet your ass I do now. Lead-singer Sean McMahon's voice is tender distillation of his 1960s forebears, and their lackadaisical grooves fit the free-spirit of the classic folk-rock era without treading into tired Jack Johnson weekend hippy territory. And Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger hit all of the possible notes of propulsive, heavy psychedelic guitar rock. Seeing the band of Sean Lennon (yes, John Lennon's son) and Charlotte Kemp shred through songs that are equal part head-banging hard rock but also acid-washed walls of noise. If you can see either of these bands live, do it. Be sure to keep an eye out for our sessions with the bands as they roll out, and check out our photos of the evening below.
