Live Animals

Conceptual artist Jenny Holzer once stated “lack of charisma can be fatal”. If that’s at all true, Seattle’s Live Animals will be mixing it up in neon-splattered geriatric diapers, as they have buttloads. This adorably dirty dynamic laptop/DJ duo possesses inspired chutzpah and ears for what instinctually shakes the booties of the chemically impaired. Their music, while fun, suffers a few growing pains. It’s somewhat beholden to their elders (let’s just say Daft Punk is definitely playing at their, their house) and flirts with occasionally with crowd pandering (their “Billie Jean” Cowbell remix is brilliant for two minutes, then promptly poops out). Regardless, these boys will only get better with age. With Spamtron, Leon Nite & DJ Fuke. MA’CHELL DUMA LAVASSAR
