GRVRBBRS Prove Me Wrong

GRVRBBRS: December 29 @ Mercury Lo
unge, New York, NY

Last week I made my way to the LES to partake in a little music intoxication. I'd gone to see Jump Into The Gospel but decided to head down to Mercury Lounge early to check out a couple of the bands that were also performing. The duo that took the stage right before them was GRVRBBRS.

When the guys from GRVRBBRS started setting up, I was pretty sure I wasn't going to like them. They had on Marine type outfits and my first thought was, this is going to be some cheesy ass shit. They had computers, keyboard/synth things and lots of wires. But, I held out some hope because there were actual guitars and basses being set up as well. Besides, I'm a reasonably open minded person and learned a very long time ago that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover.

The pair kicked off their set and I have to say, GRVRBBRS, I apologize for thinking you would be cheesy! Forgive me? I'm woman enough to admit my initial prediction was wrong. It was seriously wrong! They busted out a set of dance mixes that had everyone dancing up in there. They turned the joint into a party. Outfits aside, I ended up digging them. I do so love those moments when I discover I like something I didn't think I would.

Check them out if see them on a line-up. But, you'd better bring your dancing shoes. I guarantee you will dance.
