Charleston, S.C.’s SUSTO take their name from the culture-bound illness of the same name. According to the American Psychiatric Association, the affliction is described as “when the soul is separated from the body” and is specific to Latin American populations. It’s often likened to a panic attack. How does this translate into the alternative Americana band’s music? Front man and songwriter Justin Osborne told the College of Charleston’s CisternYard Media that, while panic is prevalent in SUSTO’s music, it intertwines with hopefulness. Catch the band on Friday, January 27, at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington. Heyrocco add support.
