It's hard to say what's more odd: the fact that Dance Band will be celebrating the release of their new funkadelic electro album, Geekadelic, at the normally quiet and reserved Cedar, or the fact that I'm still surprised by anything Dance Band does. A unique force in the realm of live local music, Dance Band should be commended for achieving the ultimate task—getting all the cool, nonchalant hipsters out onto the dance floor for serious booty shaking and the occasional synchronized zombie impersonation. If their new EP is any indication, Dance Band's tempos show no sign of slowing down. Come on, fashionistas! Paint on another pair of gold lamé tights, order up another microbrew, and get ready to wiggle until the lights come up. Did I mention they have a new song about dancing robots? Divine.
