REVIEW: Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats at The Stone Pony
Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats rocked the Stone Pony in Asbury Park for a sold out show this 4th of July weekend. The Future Tour, in support of their third studio album, kicked off in May and runs through late September. As the rain held out, the sky broke into glorious shades of reds and blues, when the band took the stage. Rateliff and the band were in fantastic form— never losing their octane-level energy— or raw and powerful vocals. With a worldly fusion of blues, rock, folk, and soul (not unlike Van Morrison who they’ve covered in the documentary The Last Waltz), they were their own force of nature— rocking the house from start to finish. From the soft horn timbres of songs like You Worry Me and Face Down in the Moment… building up to the raucous, bone shattering tracks like S.O.B., The Night Sweats covered it all.
