Will we ever tire of Ty Segall’s music? No matter how many collaborations he is involved with, EPs and albums he delivers or characters he portrays on stage-it will never happen. It’s this deep digging, ever evolving genuine artist that has music lovers from all over flocking to the venues to hear him live.
Segall and his Freedom Band, consisting of regular collaborators Mikal Cronin (bass), Charles Moothart (drums), Emmett Kelly (guitar) and Ben Boye (piano) played the second of three consecutive sold out shows at The Teragram Ballroom on Saturday night.
Fresh off the official release of his latest 19-track double album Freedom’s Goblin just the day beforehand, the band treated us to a slew of tunes both old and new, like “The Main Pretender” (featuring Cronin on sax), “Despoiler of Cadaver,” and “Every 1’s A Winner.” The band was joined as a guest vocalist on “Meaning” by Denée Segall — Ty’s wife and member of the punk band Vial.
This evening’s support was San Francisco-based quartet The Peacers, who were also joined by Cronin on their last song for a sax sit-in.
