After my friend Anna found out that I was going to the early Kurt Vile show, she asked me if I was going to stay around for the late Electric Eel Shock show as well. I hadn’t heard them before, but Anna has similar music taste to mine, so I figured if she liked them, I’d like them, too.
I took so many pics and videos that I almost ran out of battery life. Which just made me take more pics and videos. Just in case.

^ Eurotics. Ok, you know how much I hate using flash. But I was standing on one of the seats against the wall, and I didn’t want to lose that perspective, and since Eurotics were playing from the unlit floor, I couldn’t capture anything except reflection off the bass. So I used flash even though it mostly reflected off the backs of the heads of the people in front of me and still didn’t get a clear shot of the singer.
^ Hot Cha Cha. I was amazed that I was able to get a few shots of the entire band in one place, because the singer kept jumping off the stage and singing from the floor… or from the top of the bar, as you’ll see when I post the video. But here she is for a brief moment WITH the band.
^ Hot Cha Cha. And here she is riding the monitor before hopping off the stage again.
^ Hot Cha Cha. And here’s where she pulled almost the entire audience onto the stage before hopping back up to sing a bit more from the midst of the crowd.
^ Electric Eel Shock, from Japan.
^ Electric Eel Shock. Suicide Rock & Roll.
^ Electric Eel Shock interactive.
^ Electric Eel Shock. Drummer is wearing gloves and a sock.
^ Electric Eel Shock. No, nothing else. Just gloves and a floor-length sock.
