The U.K. post-punk quartet Savages came off their set at Shaky Knees (where we also caught them) to play Exit/In last Saturday, bringing their raved-about live show to Nashville for the first time since 2013. The women did not disappoint even with all the hype surrounding their high-energy performances and their sophomore record Adore Life. This band is something supremely different than you’ve heard before, definitely different (thank god) than anything going on in music right now, and beautiful hope for those of us who look at the world and don’t really like what we see.
Read on for our full review of the show, including the opener Head Wound City, and check out some great photos from the incredibly talented Jake Giles Netter.
