Live: Ghostland Observatory at Culture Room, April 27

With DJ Esoteric
Culture Room, Fort Lauderdale
Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Better than: Seeing Daft Punk in concert.

Witnessing Ghostland Observatory live is comparable to trying heroin for the first time. You feel each beat vibrate through your body. You become mesmerized by frontman Aaron Kyle Behrens' moves. And when the show is over, the Austin, Texas-based band leaves you craving more. 

Although the band's latest album Codename: Rondo hasn't been getting the greatest reviews, it didn't affect the turnout at last night's Culture Room show (and neither did the $25 ticket price). However, it's not surprising that it didn't play many tracks off said album. 

Critic's Notebook

The crowd: College bros, sorority surf girls, and lots of hippies who all love to fist-pump like it was a night out at the Jersey Shore. 

Random detail: A girl almost fell over the balcony upstairs at the venue.

Another random detail: Some guy got kicked out for smoking weed before the show started.   

Overheard: "OMG. He's so fucking hot. I told you he was fuckable. I can barely breathe, he's so hot" (in reference to frontman Aaron Kyle Behrens).

Personal bias: I lost some brain cells. I'm not sure if it was the contact high or the lasers burning my skull.
