Savages, Live In Concert

In this concert video, filmed in March before a sold-out crowd at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., the London band Savages is by turns tender and ferocious as it showcases tracks from its latest album, Adore Life. Savages' lead singer Jehnny Beth is a revelation: Even as she challenges the audience to match the group's energy from every corner of the stage — as well as catapulting herself onto the audience at one point — it's Beth's emotional, life-affirming lyrics that leave the strongest impression.

See for yourself: Savages' U.S. tour begins on July 15.
