Show Review

Their name is damn-near impossible to search on Google, but that's probably because electro-funk revivalists !!! have been inundating dance-hungry audiences far longer than the search engine has even existed - for the majority of the past 15 years. What's more, frontman Nic Offer has revolutionized the white boy boogie, inspiring millions of awkward men to frolic for all its worth. Throughout the years, we have been given many of opportunities to experience !!! in the flesh - from Bonnaroo to NYC clubs - but none match the awesomeness that we witnessed down in Austin during Hype Machine's Hype Hotel. It was the final show of the week-long event, and it was a few months shy of the release of the group's stunning new record THR!!!ER, and it was outstanding.

We suggest setting aside a full hour for this electrifying concert; 30 minutes to watch it, and an additional 30 to learn all Offer's sweet steps.

moment because we've come to the point that all bands dream of when they first start a band, which is they get to say this on stage.
This next song is the first song on our new album.
So she was better off At the bottom of a river
Than in a bed with him
He said until you try both You won't know what you like better
Why don't we go for a swim?
Friends told her this and friends told her that
But friends don't choose what echoes in your head
When she got bored with all the idle chit-chat
Kept thinking about what he said
I'll swim even when the water's cold That's the one thing that I know
I'll swim even when the water's cold That's the one thing that I know
Even when the water's cold Even when the water's cold
Even when the water's cold
Well she remembers it fondly, she doesn't remember it all
But what she does, she sees clearly
She lost his number, and he never called
But all she really lost was an earring
The other's in a box with others she has lost
I wonder if she still hears me
'Cause he said I'll swim even when the water's cold
That's the one thing that I know I'll swim even when the water's cold
That's the one thing that I know Even when the water's cold
Even when the water's cold Even when the water's cold
Even when the water's cold
music
Even when the water's cold

South by southwest, south by southwest, south by south, my in--
What a strange dream
I wouldn't claim to know Just what it means
Except for what it seems But the part about the garden
I'm positive that it was me As sounds crept in
And I thought I must have said Something wrong
'Cause she stifled a yawn But then she turned to me and said
"I feel another dream coming on"
Jamie, Jamie, Jamie My intention
I just want to kiss the look I wanna kiss the look on your face
Jamie, Jamie, Jamie My intentions are bass, are bass
are bass, are bass are bass, are bass
I just want to put some flowers I wanna wear it
She said, "It's always better doing something hip
These days it's hard if not forbidden"
But why would she tell me If she didn't want me to know
'Cause girls like to be teased Think that you should know I have some too
And I see no reason why we should stay in dream that we should come true
She said, "It seems like a story from out of one of your songs"
Well, she had me there and I could not say she was wrong
and she said "I like this song
I like this part right here And I think that it should on"
On, on Jamie, Jamie, Jamie
My intentions are bass I just want to kiss the look
I wanna kiss the look on your face Jamie, Jamie, Jamie
My intentions are bass I just want to put some flowers
I wanna put 'em
Jasmine, magnolia, Nightshade, coral rose

Jasmine, magnolia, Nightshade, coral rose
Can you tell, quickly that, yeah, that's it, honeysuckle

We've come to that time when I get to have my first drink of the night and I get to go to the after-party.
Her face, her face didn't change the whole damn time
suddenly, suddenly she left the room crying
turned her cards, turned her cards over they were shocked to find
One card, none of them had ever seen dealt
Seen dealt Seen dealt
What's a heart What's a heart of...
What's a heart What's a heart
Staring, staring out the window like something's missing
Talking, talking to himself but he's not even listening
Read the letter, read the letter over he was shocked to find
Dear you, the heart is nothing but, nothing but a shell
But a shell But a shell
For your heart
music
For your heart For your heart
Talking 'bout real love, baby It's such a precious thing
It's got to be true love, baby It's such a precious thing
'Cause we're all just fighting, baby Fighting in the dark
For a heart of hearts For a heart of hearts
For a heart of, heart of, heart of, heart of, heart of hearts
It wasn't love, it wasn't love that said it was good enough
Something inside, something inside remained untouched
Live your life, live your life over, don't be shocked to find
Good enough just ain't good enough unless it's felt
It's felt, it's felt In your hearts of...
In your hearts of... In your heart, in your heart
Talking 'bout real love, baby It's such a precious thing
It's got to be true love, baby It's such a precious thing
'Cause we're all just fighting, baby Fighting in the dark
For a heart of hearts For a heart of hearts
For a heart of, heart of, heart of, heart of,
Talking 'bout real love, baby It's such a precious thing
