Strange Boys @ Avenue Arts Last Night

A good set from the boys last night and a great crowd. Although the sound system at Avenue Arts sometimes leaves something to be desired in the mixing and volume departments, Strange Boys used it to its fullest potential last night as they played both new and old songs. One song in particular really kicked my ass, about mid way through the set, but I'm not sure of the name. Lots of stops and starts and build ups always seem to result in a good live show, don't they? In this world of a million genres, Strange Boys just seem like a good ROCK band. Whatever that means.

We were able to stick around for some of DJ G's set after the strange boys, and it was fanfuckingtastic. A really great mix of obscure disco, house, and just a bunch of cool dance floor tracks that we've never heard before and aren't really sure what to call... except awesome. The packed room full of people shaking their shit also helped. And although we had to leave to stop by a friend's birthday party, we came back around three and people were still going at it. All in all, it was probably the best Dallas party that we've been to so far this year. Good stuff.
