I admit it. I went to go see the Australian dance/punk/electro band Art Vs. Science based exclusively on their name. The trio played New York’s Bowery Ballroom on August 12, 2011. My instincts were right and they turned me into a fan before their set was over. I checked out their debut album “The Experiment” after the show was over and I recommend it. There’s a few mid-tempo tracks, but most of the album will get you up out of your seat and dancing like the crowd was at Bowery Ballroom. Highlights for me were “Sledgehammer” (no relation to the Peter Gabriel song) and “Hollywood.”
