Words by Scott Russell

John Maus seemed to hold nothing back during his show at Great American Music Hall. From the moment he hit the stage, he set about with his characteristic moves — constant pacing, fist-pumping, headbanging, and primal screaming — and kept it going for the entire set. It was an incredibly entertaining performance that felt as if one was witnessing a true cathartic release onstage.
