Following one of the catchiest albums of 2009 Miike Snow (Andrew Wyatt, and production team, Bloodshy & Avant) served up a stellar performance Saturday night at Webster Hall. Playing practically their entire catalog (minus my favorite, “Song For No One”), the band showed how a single album isn’t a hindrance to rocking a sold out party. Three sold out New York City parties to be exact—Saturday being night two.
The party started with an epic entrance of heavy bass, eerie white masks and a healthy dose of fog. It was evident from the very beginning that the packed house was going to get the dance party they hoped for. A definite highlight of the night was “Animal”. Warping through a plethora of electronic remixes, it quickly got the crowd jumping.
Also great was opener Delorean. The four-piece pop ensemble’s quick set of dance tracks and party anthems was a welcome surprise.
