Ty Segall is a master of dissonance. He proved as much Saturday at Sasquatch! Music Festival, where discord was found everywhere. From the harsh chords of The Muggers (which include the likes of King Tuff and Mikal Kronin), to the fact that Ty Segall and his drummer donned Grateful Dead shirts while the rest of The Muggers wore suits of some kind (orange jumpsuits included), to the fact that one of the best guitarists in current touring music was on stage guitar-less (see Ty Segall), the set was unconventional and uncomfortable in numerous ways. Segall and crew alternated between cuts from 2016's Emotional Mugger and past albums, signaling the change with the donning of a bald baby mask that nodded to the thematic imagery of Emotional Mugger. And whether they hit the crowd with Segall's punk infused crooning of albums past or the harsher yelling of the baby-masked song writer, Segall and crew fully captivated the crowd. Dissonance is often forced to have negative connotations, but with Ty Segall and crew in town, it can be quite the fun experience.
