On April 25, 2012, New York was treated to a double bill of great dance music as Penguin Prison and Miike Snow played their second of three sold out shows at Terminal 5.  I’ve seen Penguin Prison perform quite a few times and to date, this is the largest venue I’ve seen them play.  It worked perfectly to see close to 3,000 people shaking their bodies to the infectious dance pop of Penguin Prison’s music.   Despite a photographer pit and a huge barricade, lead singer Chris Glover still found a way to jump into the crowd and dance with the audience.  One of the highlights for me was their cover of Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans,” of which Penguin Prison recently remixed.  The track got no introduction and when the lyrics began, you could hear the audience squeal with delight.  Hearing 3,000 people shout out “Don’t Fuck With My Money” was also one of the pinnacles of the night.  For those attending tonight’s 3rd and final night, the show begins promptly at 8:00 PM, so don’t miss Penguin Prison’s set!

An hour and a half later at 9:30 PM, Miike Snow took the stage.  They must have taken my suggestion from their previous tour, which consisted of nearly the same light display for the duration of the show, as each song had a different and even more wild light show than the previous track.  Like their last tour, the band emerged from behind a smoke machine wearing masks.  They removed the masks after the first song and the audience was loving every second of it.  Lead singer Andrew Wyatt moved all over the stage and often sang at a keyboard towards the rear of the stage.  In the center of the stage, there was huge pod-like device that had lights, keyboards and a projector contained within it (see photo below).  I’ve never seen anything like that before.  Highlights of the show were the excellent new songs “Paddling Out,” (of which Penguin Prison recently remixed and is great) as well as “Devil’s Work.”  Classics from their debut album such as “Sylvia,” “Animal” and “Sans Soleil” were also played.
