My Saturday at Christenson's Big V's
Just as I was about to stay in and hit the hay early for a second night in a row, I ended up running over to Big V's to see Dance Band. I missed the Best Friends Forever set earlier, and that was a sad and unfortunate occurrence. I never end up seeing a full set of theirs, and I never get to hear "My Head in Front of Your Head," Bri's ode of love to Abraham Lincoln.
However, I kinda forgot all about that, pretty much as soon as I walked in the door and Olympia's Scream Club was busy owning the stage.
I was completely sucked into their dance/rap/electro hustle. I hoped they were from Minneapolis, but I sadly knew that they couldn't be. With names like Cindy Wonderful and Sarah Adorable, these ladies couldn't help but charm the crowd and make them dance their pants off, as the lead singer of local outfit Dance Band, would do about forty minutes later.
These guys have this interesting, dare i say, weird Indie Disco thing going on. It'd make Har Mar Superstar proud and jealous of our native Minneapolitans. Spending the majority of their set sweaty and half-naked, their songs were funny, catchy and extremely danceable. I'm looking forward to seeing what their designer puts them in when they play Voltage this year. Well, basically I'm just looking forward to more. These guys only have a single out. I can't wait to get my hands on a full-length album to dance to whenever I feel like it.
It was just one of those nights that you are supremely glad you ventured out.
