The show was all ages and there were many youngsters who had no idea who Blue Hawaii was. I had seen them not too long ago and the duo played a much more confident set than last time. Blue Hawaii remixed Untogether in order to translate it into a live club setting. They made it quite appropriate for the young audience, some of which who thought they were at a rave. Raphael Standell-Preston’s voice was soared over Agor Cowan’s heavy beats.
Purity Ring took the stage with a set up of lanterns and Corin Roddick’s light tree instrument thing. They played through a lot of Shrines but this time also included the recently buzzed about Soulja Boy cover “Grammy” (which you can watch below). There were tons to watch on stage as Roddick tinkled with lights and Megan James eerily walked pranced around the back-lighted stage creating eerie silhouettes. Occasionally she would bang on a drum and shine a lamp at the audience. Every time I see Purity Ring, I wonder how they will follow up this record and evolve their live show.
