Central Park SummerStage got heavy Tuesday night. The triple bill started off with Swedish alt-psych rockers Graveyard. There was a bunch of people that showed up early for their straight up rock and roll set and by the time it ended, the place was packed and ready for more.
Next up, and who I was really anxious to see, was Clutch. The Maryland blues-metal rockers ripped through a seventeen song set, that lasted about an hour and fifteen minutes. The set included songs from their 1993 debut album as well as their self-titled, 1995 album. Lead singer Neil Fallon joked during the set that “the internet told him” the album was 20 years old, then proceeded to play some songs from it including “Spacegrass.” They also played songs from an upcoming album Psychic Warfare, that’s due out in September.
Co-headlining the night was Georgia’s Mastodon. Their hour-long progressive heavy metal set pushed the limits of the 10pm curfew. Clutch singer Neil Fallon joined them onstage for the final song of the night “Blood and Thunder.”
