Concert Review: Electric Six at the Grog Shop, 5/8




The Grog Shop turned into a house party on Friday night. And the charismatic disco/rock, Detroit based sextet Electric Six were more than eager to host the splendid soiree.

There was beer guzzling and singalongs galore, and everyone was looking for a friend to throw their arms around. The night got rolling with tunes like “She’s White” and “Vibrator,” which jolted the fervor of the audience into leaps of glee. “Slices of You” and the ever-popular “Gay Bar” tipped the scales of synchronized clapping and crowd participation, bringing the night to a whole new level of amusement.

But the 6 weren’t ready to stop there. They decided to make things slightly more interesting and corralled slices of their songs into clever medley-fueled joyrides. “Nuclear War (On the Dance Floor)”, “Improper Dancing” and “Danger! High Voltage” never sounded so good.

The crowd's stamina was infectious while the band kept rocking away. And the set list just kept hopping the coolness factor.

Electric Six quickly wrapped up the night with a subtle seduction from their new album, which is due in October. And by the looks of things, fans are eager to hear the new tunes. Until then, the band plans to keep rockin’ them live. And that’s a very good reason to dance improperly! —Hannah Verbeuren
