There's a whole lot of dancing going on. What's up?! Dance grooves are invading the indie scene and infecting the head-bobbing crowd. De Lux (at right) is fortuitously at the center of this 'seriously indie meets post-disco' sound that I keep running into all over the place. This show celebrated the release on Apr. 8 of their first full-length album on the Innovative Leisure label, called Voyage. I felt a little like a proud parent since I have known Sean Guerin for a couple years now as he does the sound for my monthly Feed Your Head shows at Lot 1. And one of the pleasures of our collaboration has been bands we've introduced to each other.
Sean has done sound for Earth Like Planets twice at Lot 1 and he and Brian Cooper struck up a friendship based on mutual admiration. So when Sean got this Album Release Show on April 10th he wanted to bring this performer with him. And I was very excited to see Earth Like Planets perform on the rather larger stage at The Echo to see what this one-man-band could do when opened up.
