Art Vs. Science live at Bowery Ballroom

Art Vs. Science

Art Vs. Science

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.”

Saturday 13th August North Halsted Market Days, Chicago, IL.

Sunday 14th August The Empty Bottle, Chicago, IL.

Thursday 18th August Club Congress, Tuscon, AZ.

Friday 19th August Bar Smith, Phoenix, AZ.

An Encounter with Francis Farewell Starlite

Francis Farewell Starlite and G

The lead singer of Francis and the Lights has legally changed his name to Francis Farewell Starlite.  According2g, that makes him totally awesome immediately.  It helps that his music is pretty great as well and when you see him live as I did on August 12, 2010, the Prince comparisons make total sense.  The guy dances his butt off on stage and coupled with the amazing band he has backing him, you’ll find yourself making “the funky face” many times as you watch him perform.  I’d read a few articles and they alluded to Francis Farewell Starlite being difficult.  As I walked into the afterparty following his awesome performance, Francis Farewell Starlite was anything but difficult.  In fact he was extremely nice!  He took photos with myself and a few other fans and was very personable.  He also autographed his CD “It’ll be Better” for me.  I couldn’t resist asking him what his favorite Prince song is and without hesitation, he said “Pop Life.”  Good choice!  Best of luck Francis.  See you next week at the MGMT show and hope to see your name in lights for many years to come!
