Montreal four-piece Beast put on a really energetic and tight live show at The Studio at Webster Hall last Friday night. As the first band playing the AM Only Showcase that night, not many people were there for their show, but this didn’t stop them from going hard with their particular Portishead-meets-Rage-Against-the-Machine stylings. Plus, dude has a keyboard on his bass! Here’s a video of their last song of the night, “Out of Control,” from their 2008 self-titled release.
Beast – Out of Control (live):
There are still tons of shows left this weekend as part of CMJ, so go check out some new bands and dance with somebody! Here’s some inspiration.
Shout out to my boy Burke for getting this song in my head this morning.
Whitney Houston – I Wanna Dance with Somebody:
If you want to hang out with us tonight, come check out Beast and Red Wire Black Wire for the AM Only Showcase at The Studio at Webster Hall! RWBW just got back from being on tour and are celebrating the release of their great new record Robots & Roses, out now on Tough Customer Records, so it should be a fun time.
Or hit up the Cantora Records show at Bowery Electric around the corner, where we’ll be catching a set from Bear Hands later on.
Have a great weekend everybody!
