This is my third time seeing Sean Lennon, the son of John & Yoko, so I have enjoyed seeing this versatile musician go from experimental to indie-rock and currently, along with his significant other, Charlotte Kemp Muhl, is playing more psych-rock. The two met at Coachella in 2006, formed The GOASTT in 2008, and released their debut album called Acoustic Sessions in 2010, and they are back with Midnight Sun (Chimera Music) in 2014.

Singing duties were shared by both Lennon and Muhl, with Muhl playing mostly bass until she took out the glockenspiel for "The World Was Made For Men."
For Sean Lennon, who is probably used to being in the spotlight, he is seemingly shy on stage. When he speaks, it's quite soft-spoken, almost whispering at times. When he jokes, they seem to be private jokes, only understood by Muhl. For example, Lennon said you can tell Muhl is from Georgia by her pronunciation of "America," which, as an audience member, we never heard her say, so we can only imagine Muhl saying, "'merica."
Also, the band decided to ditch the tried-and-true encore, instead incorporating the final two songs into their set without any awkward break.
The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger is currently on tour for their latest album Midnight Sun. Fans of psychedelic music should check out their show... especially because with the exciting news is that the band will be opening up for Beck, starting June 19th.
