Love the Deep South...
We've been playing some of the best shows we ever have as of late, and it felt like this show was no different. It feels great to just let go and play these songs.
The other two bands were fantastic, but I have to give some mention to the last band of the night, the Dolchevic Brigade, a friggin crazy electronica band featuring the drummer from Marcy Playground (I smell Sex and Candy here...)
The dude couldn't have been a nicer guy, and I had a small conversation with him as he was loading on and I was loading off, and it was like talking to a really nice guy who had a ton of warpaint on his face. And then came his band, two girls with masks and full outfits.
It's really hard to describe the music but saying "modern devo" might give you an idea. And they did cover "whip it" so i guess its an apropos comparison.
Even more notable was the crowd they had, right up front was a trio that I wanted to pay to follow us and dance -> an older woman going nuts with two hula-hoops, a dude in a banana suit, and another dude in a racecar driver outfit. None of them could really dance, but they were dancing like no-one was watching while the singer was screaming through a bullhorn and doing karate chops in the air, and the girls were beating on these drums all tribal like, with deep electronic bleeps and bloops coming from the laptop rig on stage.
I was envious of the entire situation, and had a blast. Another great night at the Deep South Bar...
