I love Gossip!  Not actual gossip, but the band Gossip.  The trio was in town to perform a record release show for their great new album “A Joyful Noise” which was released on May 22, 2012.  If you don’t know the music of Gossip, definitely check them out.  And on new tracks such as “Move in the Right Direction” just try and sit still while the song plays.  It’s impossible!   They started off as a punk rock band (and lead singer Beth Ditto has a set of pipes on her that makes you realize she was born to perform) and have recently been exploring dancier territory.

If you’ve never seen Gossip live, I highly recommend it as their shows are high energy with Beth Ditto running all over the stage and they tend to always throw in an unexpected cover.  In the past, I’ve heard Grace Jones’ “Pull Up To The Bumper” and Wham’s “Careless Whisper.”

Thanks Gossip for rockin’ and, of course, for being so cool!
