There are few acts more exuberantly joyous than Sylvan Esso, the unlikely duo of singer Amelia Meath (formerly of acapella folk trio Mountain Man) and producer Nick Sanborn. Together, the pair makes slick, efficient electro-pop that balances emotionally resonant lyricism with danceable beats—your feet will start moving in spite of themselves. The group headlines the Aragon Ballroom on Halloween, joined by Colombian Canadian singer-songwriter (and winner of the 2017 Polaris Music Prize) Lido Pimienta.
