A couple of weeks ago S. Carey played in Madison as one of the first shows on their midwestern tour. The band, led by Bon Iver drummer Sean Carey played to a surprisingly large crowd for a Thursday night at the High Noon. After opener Other Lives had finished, S. Carey took the stage and started off their set with an ambient jam. It became evident that the group of musicians Carey had assembled to bring the songs from his solo record, In the Dirt, would do more than just play through the record as it stood. As the band began playing tunes I recognized from the album, their musical abilities shone through. Carey’s songs were intensified in the live setting, with epic crescendos when he would step away from the keyboards and over to a tom he had in front of him, adding another layer of percussion to the already lush sound. Peruse the pictures below and check out S. Carey’s live show if you get the chance.
