YSP! WSD! @ Empty Bottle on March 31, 2010

Posted: April 1, 2010 in Show Review

Last night I ultimately decided to go see You Say Party! We Say Die! show at Empty Bottle. It would be my second Canadian band in as many weeks. It was a cheap show and I love Empty Bottle so I had no reason not to go. I didn’t get there until ten because I was hanging out with CIRF at Blind Robin. I got to Empty Bottle in time to see Clique Talk. I never heard of these guys but they weren’t bad. They kind of remind me of New Order or something along those lines. People seemed to be really into them. Their singer was in the crowd dancing most of the time and people seemed to love that. Actually that crowd was kind of interesting, the people up front were wearing some weird clothes.

Around 11:15 YSP! WSD! went on stage. I was slightly shocked when I realized that the singer had been one of the people dancing in the crowd during the Clique Talk set. Although, I guess that explains her weird clothes. It was pretty cool though that she was in the crowd, she was a pretty good dancer. I am not too familiar with the band but I knew some of their songs. They were very energetic and put on a good show but I just wasn’t into it that night, maybe it was because it was a weekday or maybe it was because there was such a small crowd, who knows. It wasn’t necessarily a bad show but I have to admit I was somewhat disappointed. I heard a few compare this band to Q and not U so that probably raised my expectations too high. I am willing to give them another chance though, maybe on a Saturday night after a few drinks.
