Free Energy Residency At The Echo- Week Two Recap

September 24th, 2013 by Tori Holder

By: Tori Holder

Last night Free Energy rocked yet another show at their Echo Residency this month. The band tore through favorites from their first two albums and EP along with new material and some covers. For those unfamiliar with the band, the best way to describe them end up sounding like a 15 year old in the 1970s: “um, well, they rock really hard, and they’re like, a lot of fun,  and tiny bit pop-ish and silly, and you could like, listen to them with a bunch of friends and like dance and rock out, but you could just listen to them by yourself too I guess”. The infectious cheerful party rock garnered a lot of crowd energy, but the fun didn’t just start after the headlining act went on. Black Crystal Wolf Kids, the self proclaimed “only indie rock cover band” played a medley of covers from The White Stripes to Lorde and even had Paul from Free Energy up to sing on a cover of Phoenix’s 1901. Once through their poncho-filled fun (and getting the crowd to linedance to Pumped Up Kicks),  Yip Deceiver took the stage. Featuring of Montreal’s Davey Pierce, the band fills the room with a flurry of catchy synth hooks and R&B influence that is the definition of danceable, but delightfully distinct from of Montreal, kind of giving off a Discovery/The Rapture/Passion Pit’s last album sort of vibe. All in all, a must-see show. Which is the great thing about residencies, you can hear it was a must see show and then go see it, as the final night of the residency is next Monday. RSVP here (it’s free), and thank us later.
