It’s been a week since I saw this band in Santa Cruz and I haven’t been able to post about The Silent Comedy until now. I don’t think my words & I know this youtube video will do them justice.
Let’s start by saying: I have averaged about 100-150 shows per year for a good 4 years. I see bands of all genres/all levels of success. Some I snooze through, some I dance to, some are background to a great night with friends, and some are so incredible that I become an instant-super-fan.
The Silent Comedy gave me a reaction so rare these days in live shows. I was completely floored / flabbergasted and wildly giddy about this band. I can’t put into words how shockingly outrageous this band is live.
This band is flooded with energy. They are hungry. They are full of life and color. They killed it onstage in ways that Muse doesn’t, in ways that Radiohead doesn’t, in ways that bands that have already earned their stripes can’t. I was turned upside-down in their 45 minute set and after they left the stage – I craved them.
I urge you to check their website & see when they play in your area. I urge you to like them on Facebook – buy some of their music off of itunes & then…once you’re as hooked as I am – I urge you to tell me all about it.
Here’s an acoustic, mellow song. If I were their manager, I’d put some money into getting some of their lively live shows up on the internet (#failmgr). Until then, read my words, trust them and enjoy this acoustic version.
