We celebrated our first show at Baby’s All Right on the eve of the often overlooked April 8th holiday. It was great! (Don’t forget about our encore production at Baby’s All Right this Friday with Twin Wave, Surf Rock Is Dead, and Ula Ruth!) Back to last Thursday:
There are only four Glassio originals from their Poptimism EP, yet they boldly opened their set with something new. “Try Much Harder” came alongside “The Weight Of The World On The Girl”, my personal favorite. The crowd’s shared excitement was obvious throughout the set, as everyone enjoyed just how fun and danceable Glassio’s tunes were.
When describing George Clanton’s, set the word captivating comes to mind. His set-up is simple, a few gadgets and a microphone, but his performance was far from basic. Moments into his opening track, the effervescent intensity was apparent. He never held back, dancing with the crowd while performing tracks such as “Bleed” and simply rocking out to others like “Wonder Gently” — a mesmerizing performance through and through.
Headliners Step Rockets joined us for a stop on their Future Nature tour, named after the EP they have set for release this Friday. The band gave an energized, intense performance, demonstrating their stage prowess to the audience and giving their pop tracks new life in a live setting. They brought heaps of charisma to the venue and rocked the night away, playing new tracks and old favorites like their hit “Kisser”.
