Cut Copy @ Studio B

Early front runner for my favorite show of the year. Cut Copy are the perfect band for a place like Studio B and everyone there last night was in full on party mode. The Fixed DJs already had the crowd moving before Cut Copy got on stage and once they started playing it seemed like every single person in the typically overcrowded room was dancing. This show was everything that I was hoping LCD @ Studio B would be, but just wasn't. Their set was tight and focused without any pomp and circumstance. The new songs were all sorts of dancey and fun, especially Lights and Music, and the now classics Saturdays and Time Stands Still were bounce fests. There was no Daft Punk cover, like they did the last time I saw them, opening for Rapture at Bowery, but that's fine. I get the feeling that these guys know they have plenty of their own ammunition now. It will be hard to replicate the energy of last nights performance at little Mercury tomorrow on a Monday night, but I'm sure it will still be a good time. Take note apprehensive newcomers, Cut Copy are the real thing, on the verge of greatness.
