Lucius - Turn It Around
I heard these Brooklyn ladies were a local favorite, and they killed it!
James Bay - Move Together
The British singer-songwriter had an incredible acoustic set, and he was easily one of my favorites of the week.
Prides - Out of the Blue
The synthpop Glasgow group Prides kicked off a UK music showcase (basically my fantasy), and their very first single "Out of the Blue" is a preview of the amazing dance tunes.
Duologue - Gift Horse
Beautiful things happening with their experimental beats and ethereal sound.
Strange Talk - Climbing Walls
Electro-pop Aussies. Feels like they've fused Two Door Cinema Club and Phoenix together.
The Stationary Set - Close Enough
I stumbled into Rockwood Music Hall (possibly after too many drinks) and The Stationary Set was the next band up. 2 songs in and I was wondering HOW was it possible to stumble upon this much awesome?
Panama Wedding - All of the People
I got a double dose of Panama Wedding at two different showcases, and their tropical indie rock was such a crowd pleaser. I discovered they have only released one song, and it doesn't even begin to show how great they are live. Ready for more!
Claire - Games
A German dance-pop band with a ton of energy and eclectic beats.
NONONO - Like the Wind
From Stockholm, this group is YESYESYES (see what I did there? I'm sorry.)
Betty Who - High Society
The entire band wore matching letter jackets while Betty Who skipped around on stage. Amazingness.
Ghost Beach - Miracle
I saw these local New York guys open up for Imagine Dragons a year ago, and they've been my dance jam ever since. Totally deserving of the night's headline.
Half Moon Run - Unofferable
My favorite Canadians closed out the week at 1am on Saturday, and after so many loud dance parties, this was the perfect note to end on.
