So ... last night ... the Echo ... CSS headlined (they're currently on tour with Ladytron), and holy smokes, it was cool.
The place was absolutely packed, and there were like, a hundred people waiting outside for any spare tickets that came up. CSS was prompt (!), getting on stage at around 10.30, but man did they deliver one hell of a set.
Lovefoxx was definitely feeling the crowd and the energy throughout the whole show, although things didn't really get started from the audience until like, halfway through their show. But whatever, I had a good time throughout. The whole group commands really well ... great stage presence. I loved how they spoke in slightly broken English, how they kept switching instruments, and how they were just so interactive with the crowd. Lovefoxx crowd surfed three times, I think, did some pretty wacky dances, and even served air alcohol to those in the front row at one point.
So yeah -- it was cool.
Grand Ole Party opened for them, and they were ... pretty decent. Interesting delivery of the songs in terms of vocals, really stellar guitar playing, and just a unique quality throughout. I liked 'em, but they were nothing compared to CSS ...
Oh, and since you've all heard CSS to death, I'm assuming, I'll just post this one track ... a sort of remix of their song "Alcohol." Sounds to me like what they would've recorded had they come into the studio totally hung over at around 9 AM.
Pictures are here.
