One Reddit user wrote a short report of the night, writing: “Everyone was on point. And I heard that mastodon doesn’t interact with the crowd too much(especially Brent) but they really were last night. It was an awesome night.

“Believe it or not, Brent’s fucking grandma was onstage the entire set and was dancing beside Brent. It was insane!”


Mastodon released their seventh studio album ‘Emperor Of Sand’ earlier this year. It features guest appearances from Neurosis’ Scott Kelly and Brutal Truth’s Kevin Sharp.
