THE GAY BLADES are a must see live

If you have been following TBE for awhile you may, like me, have seen Brandon feature The Gay Blades once or twice.  Subsequently, when I saw they were coming to Austin, I of course asked Brandon “what’s up with these guys?”  He told me they are a “cant miss” live.  Well, last night I was properly introduced to The Gay Blades and I gotta be honest,… they F’n killed it.  Their stage presence and crowd interaction showed me that these dudes seriously fancy putting on a show.  The Gay Blades are still a relatively unknown band, and the crowd or lack there of was proof.  It didn’t take long though, for them to capture every bit of attention in Emo’s indoor bar.  By the end of the night, that joint was rocking tough.  The highlight of the show was when The Blades invited the crowd on stage like Girl Talk so infamously does.  Below I have included their tour schedule… you’d be crazy to miss them in your city.

♫ The Gay Blades – Try To Understand

The Gay Blades are one of the fiercest 2 piece bands I’ve ever seen tear up a stage. Although it’s always amazing to hear how much sound a pair of dudes can crank out it’s also nice to hear what those dudes do with more production. Here the Blades add horns to the mix, which along with a healthy supply of “oooh-oooohs” successfully gets my ass grooving and my ears pumped for Savages, the follow-up to 2007’s great Ghosts. While “Try To Understand” jam doesn’t grab as immediately as “O Shot” or “He Say She” it’s been growing on me with every listen and getting me thinking about what other sonic shifts the guys have been working on. October 5th, where are you!?
