SUSTO is a group on the up and up. Part indie rock, part alt-country, the band was recently tapped to open up for indie darlings The Lumineers. SUSTO will be hopping on the North American leg of The Lumineers' “Cleopatra World Tour” beginning Feb. 28 near Dallas at the Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie, but not before making some tour stops of their own, including Denver’s Lost Lake. Although they are based in Charleston, S.C., SUSTO seems to have a big following in Colorado and Lost Lake was full to the brim on Thursday night. Be sure to check out our amazing video below captured by Allen Jimenez.
The band is currently touring in support of their latest album & I’m Fine Today. Led by the observant and insightful wordsmithery of frontman Justin Osborne and the versatile guitar and keyboard work of Dries Vandenberg, the band is buoyed by guitarist Corey Campbell, bassist Jenna Desmond, and the rock steady beat of drummer Marshall Hudson.
SUSTO showcased the tightness of a band well seasoned from the road. It was a sweaty—Thursday was an unseasonably warm February night in Colorado—gritty rock show, but with Osborne’s thoughtful, downhome musings and sometimes psychedelic imagery that fans have become accustomed to. SUSTO busted out a number of songs from their new album including “Waves, “Far Out Feeling,” and “Hard Drugs” as well as favorites from their 2014 eponymous debut like “Cigarettes, Whiskey & Wine” and “Smoking Outside” to close the show.

SUSTO will be hitting the road with The Lumineers and Kaleo beginning February 28. Follow this link to browse AXS for select tickets.
