New Brookland Tavern brings Charleston band SUSTO to Columbia

The Charleston-based band SUSTO shook New Brookland Tavern on Thursday night. The crowd was full of rowdy, long time fans, who shouted their adolescent anthems and screamed for all of their new favorites. SUSTO is in the midst of touring their sophomore album “& I’m Fine Today” and is steadily gaining traction. This spring they will be on tour with the Lumineers, but last night was not about SUSTO’s potential catapult into the mainstream music scene. Rather, it was an intimate, gritty, recognition of those who have loved their sound from the beginning, and an ardent welcome to newer followers.
