Skirt Jam of the Week – The Knocks – Brightside

20 Jan

These guys are awesome.  I saw them play in DC last week, and they absolutely killed it.  They played all their hits (Dancing with the DJ, Brightside, Make it Better), which was expected, but they also played a bunch of incredible mashups from the 80s and 90s that had the entire crowd singing along.  The two guys each had a drumkit on either side of the stage and keyboards, and they’d drum back and forth while the other played the keyboards and sang.  After coming out of NYC in 2007, they were relatively unknown for a few years before releasing the three hit singles above starting in 2010.  They’re currently opening for Ellie Goulding on her U.S. tour but if they come through your town (I saw them in a smallish venue for $10), definitely check them out.
