I love a good dance party. That’s exactly what tonight’s show at SPACE turned into. From the Vistas kicking it off and keeping things moving between bands with a sweet mix of samples and beats both familiar and new (come experience their full-on party abilities with us April 30 in Belfast) to an appropriately raw set from the latest incarnation of Foam Castles, even before we got to the highly touted touring acts the night was feeling strong. Seattle’s Champagne, Champagne demanded (and deserved) attention – and inserting a Sonic Youth cover into hiphop-inflected party jams is a surefire way to win me over. They brought the mood way, way, way up in time for STRFKR to totally destroy with their intense shoegazey sonic bounce. Basically, it was a blast.
