On July 16, 2010, Connecticut based band The Stepkids opened for Mates of State at the Bowery Ballroom in New York. This was my first exposure to their music and I loved what I heard. The 4 piece band came out on stage, all clad in white. As the lights went down, really trippy screen projections were projected directly onto the band, as you can see above and below. The visuals matched the music as they have a sound that reminded me of MGMT mixed with Of Montreal. The music is jammy, spacey and funky! I really enjoyed what I heard. If you check out their Myspace page (link is above), you can get a feel for their live performance, which was really cool. Their first full length album will be out in August 2010. Look for these guys when they come to your town!
