A few months ago, I wrote about electro-pop band Future Relative and I recommended you turn off the lights, blast their music and throw yourself a silent rave. I wrote those words after only hearing their studio material. They played an intimate show at New York’s Mercury Lounge on November 26, 2010 and they delivered the goods in concert. When they hit the stage around 11 pm, all was dark except for a really cool microphone stand that lit up. The trio played 45 minutes of dance music and everyone in the venue was loving it. Lead singer Armand Aviram started singing and before long, the crowd was dancing and working off the Thanksgiving feasts we consumed the night before. They played their future classics “X-Ray Vision,” “Monday Morning” and even played a nicely done cover of Bjork’s “Army of Me.” A video of that will be coming soon, so stay tuned. It might be hard to tell from these photos, but ladies and gays will have an added bonus when they see Future Relative live because they are all gorgeous. This is definitely a band to watch in 2011 and I am excited to see and hear more from Future Relative.
