Ty Segall: Enduring Neck Pain, Crowd Surfing and Epic Mosh Pits

\"Thank God For the Sinners\" -Ty Segall

Ty Segal
Described to me by a friend as “the hardest working musician right now,” Ty Segall has come out with 3 albums in the last year and tours continuously, spreading his skills and sound around the country.


I personally hadn’t had much exposure to him before his show at The Blind Pig on the night of Thursday February 6th 2013. The evening was relatively cold and The Pig was PACKED. My friends and I arrived around 10:30, doors opened at 9:00pm.
We Heard:
Ex-Cults; fun, indi, energetic (female bassist)

K-Holes; who are very punk/ grunge/ sca sounding, attractive musicians

And finally TySegall:

The Mosh-Pit started during the K-Holes. The energy people were throwing about was quite contagious. No injuries occurred and we all created a nice dynamic with the bands, showing our appreciation through sweat and perhaps some blood and tears. There was a good amount of crowd surfing and a couple essential articles of clothing were lost in the fray.
Over the course of the night each band provided their own level of excitement. Although many of us were antsy to hear Ty, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the opening acts and was nicely oiled up for Ty’s smack-down blowout performance when the time came.
Although it was an enjoyable evening all in all, I found it difficult to appreciate the quality of Ty’s musical skills due to the level of physical disruption going on around me. I look forward to experiencing his music more in other contexts and will be physically preparing for his next tour through Ann Arbor.
