ODESZA/Little People/Emancipator

IMG_4059

So I went to a concert on friday night, it was emancipator and then opening for him was ODESZA and Little People at the Wonder Ballroom.

Emancipator was amazing of course but i’ve already blogged enough about him. Little People was also quite good, but nothing new.. the real surprise was ODESZA…

I’d never heard of them, and was obviously expecting good music as anyone opening for emancipator has to be good, but seriously they exceeded my expectations…majorly!

I’m so in love. it was just lovely music, with such good beats and it just made me so so happy. Unfortunately, once you hear a group live, if they’re crazy good, their recorded stuff won’t be quite as amazing, but this is still prettttyy great stuff 🙂

on top of which, all of their songs are either freely downloadable off their soundcloud, or you can just download their entire album off of their website.

the video of my favorite song of their’s is lovely too, particularly around 1:30-ish when the fireworks mesh perfectly with the main line of the song. it makes you super happy and nostalgic about summer

heres the soundcloud for the same song, since the music video is only half of the song!

Went to the Dillon Francis show at the Roseland on Friday.

It was intense. By far the most pushy, unfriendly crowd i’ve ever been in.

The music itself was great. and Dill-Fran has a very charmingly adorable personality (if you haven’t watched the interview video of him for IDGAFOS, go do it. and then you’ll see what i mean about the charm). Plus the openers were quite wonderful in themselves. However, it was theee most exhausted and drenched in sweat [not just my sweat] that I’ve ever been from a show.
