Photo Recap: Sylvan Esso and Helado Negro @ Old National Center

Sylvan Esso and tourmates Helado Negro were heartily welcomed back to Indianapolis last week at the Old National Center’s Egyptian Room. Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn performed songs from their newest album under the Sylvan Esso moniker, What Now, alongside crowd favorites off of their debut record. Meath and Sanborn brimmed with energy and light, strutting and bounding across the stage amid their unbelievable close encounters-esque stage show. It was a performance that filled the room with a captivating sense of joy and fun, causing longtime fans and those unfamiliar with Sylvan Esso to be equally smitten.

Helado Negro opened the evening with an exceptional set dripping with political charm and smooth avant pop. Flanked by two shimmering Tinsel Mammals, Roberto Carlos Lange crooned over synth arrangements filling even the most uncoordinated audience member with the irresistible urge to dance. Check out his latest album, Private Energy, and be sure to catch both bands on tour through 2017.
