Sound Team @ The Troubadour

The Sound Team / Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin / Division Day tour has an over-arching theme of kindness built into it. I don't think I've ever seen that many genuinely nice musicians under the same roof. Plus they all play great music! Needless to say, this made for quite a pleasant Thursday evening.

Thanks to Rock Insider, The Content knew it was important to show up early and catch Division Day's opening set. Unfortunately, we were minus a camera upon arrival to the Troub (Casey saved the day by bringing her camera a bit later). Division Day had an amicable pop feel that made me appreciate the sunny weather around me, and created some nostalgia for my high school music collection (I mean this as a compliment).

Next up was Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, who won top prize for being the nicest guys around. The first half of their set remains somewhat of a blur. I enjoyed the music, but didn't gain anything from the vocals. Both singers felt hesitant in front of the mic at first; however, by the second half of the set the band had relaxed, and everything flowed more smoothly.

Sound Team was the main attraction for the night, and easily justified their top billing with a sharp, dance-inducing live set that made it hard to believe six people were all playing on stage at once. I'm convinced they are hardwired into each other's brains, because they couldn't seem to miss a note. While there was a lot of sound coming from the instruments, Matt Oliver's vocals always managed to break free from the wall of synth. The band's crisp production left the crowd shaking its tail feathers throughout the set, and The Content went yapping all the way home.

Can't ask for anything more than a hat-trick performance at the Troubadour.
