We are in the midst of a heatwave here in New York with temperatures in the upper ’90s during the day and only dropping to around 80 at night. I have spent a lot of it in semi-legal performance spaces with zero air conditioning. There has been a lot of sweating but Sic Alps were the first band I’ve seen all week that made it feel like the heat was being generated from the stage. Incredible.
Sic Alps play Union Pool tonight, which does have AC…whether it’s any match for these two, we shall see.
