When Sylvan Esso played a sold-out Cat’s Cradle in May, just ahead of the release of its hit debut, the wonderment and excitement of the crowd worked as a functional filler for what the show itself lacked. The mix wasn’t commanding enough, for instance, and Nick Sanborn and Amelia Meath still seemed to be learning just how to interact with crowds that knew every word. But the crowd was hyped, and the night was all right. It’s been nearly six months since that local stand, though, six months full of sold-out shows, international dates, major opening slots and late-night television. Back at home, Sylvan Esso commands two capacity crowds on consecutive costumed nights. For Halloween, can they harness the power to be bigger than themselves? —Grayson Haver Currin
