Salt Lake City Weekly Review – Feb 6th show

“Embarrassingly in my shopping frenzied haze I managed to miss Kid
Theodore at Velour, but did get back in time in order to watch Neon
Trees set the stage up. The singer was colorfully dressed in a green
top with a bedazzled scarf, and the kids danced to thumping music while
waiting for them. Once they started the crowd began to dance
uncontrollably to their upbeat music. The singer was a natural at
demanding attention, it was a little bit reminiscent of !!! and Does It
Offend You, Yeah. The audience was not lacking in sweaty front row men
that knew the lyrics to every song, one of them even kickbox dancing.
The female drummer in the band was phenomenal; it’s rare that I see a
girl drummer rocking with such prowess. I commented to my friend that
these guys sounded just as good, if not better than any touring band
that I have heard coming through our downtown area, and they should
make their way to us, I think they could just as easily pack a club for
a night out in Salt Lake.”
