On July 17, 2010 Texas based British artist Devonte’ Hynes aka Dev aka Lightspeed Champion, opened for We Are Scientists at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York. Dev, as he introduced himself to us, is really talented! In addition to singing, he’s a producer, writer and author! He’s written songs for Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, Solange Knowles and Florence and The Machine and he also performs classical music! Whoa! His set was quite minimal with just him and a guitar and a sampler, but it was all that was necessary. Dev has an amazing voice! He even performed a really great cover of Janet Jackson’s “He Doesn’t Even Know I’m Alive,” which I took a video of and will be posting in the near future (so stay tuned for that!). He slowed it down and it’s beautiful! Dev confessed that the other night at a show in Boston, someone approached him after the show and told him that he sucked. It was especially devastating to him as he mentioned that he planned on moving to Boston. Lightspeed Champion did anything but suck when he performed in New York and the crowd loved every second! The crowd lost their minds when We Are Scientists’ lead singer Keith Murray guested on stage and during the last song, Dev jumped into the audience, laid down in the middle of the floor and performed on his back! It was awesome! I met Dev prior to the show, and he was extremely nice! Looking forward to hearing more great stuff from Lightspeed Champion! Thanks for a beautiful night Dev!
Brooklyn based rockers Bad Girlfriend didn’t have to travel very far to open for We Are Scientists at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn on July 17, 2010. The all female quartet got the crowd warmed up and ready to rock as they played songs such as “Pink Chocolate,” “Blonde Rocket” and “Love Life.” The band was very energetic and the audience rocked out to Bad Girlfriend’s 40 minute set. To add a bit of flavor to the mix, the band jammed with the second opening act Lightspeed Champion during one song and later called on We Are Scientists frontman Keith Murray for another. Obviously, the crowd lost their minds when that happened and I think the band added a lot more people to their growing army of fans.
