Onstage, the band power through half an hour of instrumental experimental weirdness, ranging from beautifully melodic to breathtakingly heavy. With shades of both Dream Theater and The Mars Volta, Jigsaw Culture might not be the most exciting performers in the world, but their unique sound more than makes up for it.
