It’s been two years since Hooray For Earth soaked the scene in their synth-rich goodness, and on Tuesday night the spell was finally broken. The band’s live set, rich on danceable beats and psychedelic riffs, pumped life into an otherwise quiet downtown on that evening.

They brought along New York-based Grooms, a band filled with driving momentum. Grooms is incredibly rhythmic with an aggressive onstage presence just waiting to be unleashed.

SONA opened with their impressive shoegaze that filled every corner of the venue with throbbing pulsations.
