After a slew of shows supporting bands like The Breeders, Mitski and Snail Mail–SASAMI, full name Sasami Ashworth, began 2019 with her own headlining show in her hometown of LA.

Playing to a full crowd, SASAMI’s raw and emotional lyrics captivated and brought us into her musical canvas, painting a wall of distortion and fuzz that came crying out of her guitar.

The serious candor of her songs gave way as she joked back and forward with the crowd in between songs. SASAMI invited us to shout things out loud so she can repeat them while she tuned. Random phrases and meows were heard and SASAMI happily repeated every single one of them. Soon, she quickly got back into gear and played an amazing set.

The show was opened up by Rebecca Schiffman and closed out with a ruckus set by Slut Island
