Planet Booty Bounces into Town

I was surprised at the amount of people that were at Stereo, some of the people I talked to before the show didn’t know a band was going to play but by the end of the first song most of the people were dancing. The electro-funk trio that completes Planet Booty was extraordinarily energetic and charismatic during their performance. Seeing them reminded me of seeing a friend’s show. It felt personal when they would motion at individuals, dance with people and chatted and (especially) approached and thanked individuals for coming to the show and the entire audience collectively.

If they weren’t wielding an instrument, they stood at the front of the stage facing the crowd trying to get everyone to “bounce that ass” but not in a disrespectful way like I’ve encountered at venues before. Planet Booty wanted everyone to have as much fun as they were having. I’m not sure that was possible because, it seemed to me that Dylan Charles Germick (vocals, trumpet, beats), Josh Cantero (vocals, keyboard, trombone) and Rob Gwin (bass, percussion, software) were having the time of their lives. Germick mainly sang at the front of the group but was joined by Cantero often. Germick is exceedingly personable and effectively gets the crowd going. Cantero would return to his keyboard and sing when needed, but was unfailingly animated the entire show. Gwin was the heartbeat, keeping them all together and moving forward, all while maintaining as much enthusiasm as he had at the beginning. I was stunned by all of them sustaining the very high energy they begun the show with.

Their vigor and passion is incredible and virtually unmatched by any show I’ve been to (shows that I’ve paid to see!). They all are performers and they are ready to party with their fans. Germick would join the crowd throughout the show to dance with the audience, forming a delightful relationship and, overall, loving vibe with the crowd. Their proclaimed genre is “Sweat” and I felt that by the end of the show. Afterwards they mingled with the crowd for as long as they could, but they had to head out for their next gig in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 24. I hope they come back to Albuquerque soon so I can see them again.

Performance Review

Funny Bunches of Jokes

Show up for The Show

Naming an improv troupe The Show means it’s destined for many, many Abbott and Costello “Who’s on first?”-style jokes. That bit was a classic, polished routine, but the new comedy team at The Box Performance Space & Improv Theatre lives in the unscripted and unexpected.

Performance Review

Ludwig’s Hotspot

Church of Beethoven’s older, cocktail-swirling brother

When I found out I could hear live classical music and drink a beer and not get up “really early” on Sunday morning, I was totally in. Club Beethoven is the afternoon version of Church of Beethoven, the long-running Sunday morning event featuring classical music and a bit of spoken performance, usually poetry. The Club is held in the afternoon, at Casablanca, inside the Hotel Andaluz.
