thunderheist's late night dance party at studio b

The road to Thunderheist started early, very early; 9:30pm to be exact. I had never been to Studio B in Brooklyn before, but the upper patio quickly became my living room; if my living room had palm trees and a pond. At around 10:30 the place finally began to crowd so I began to reach out to people and start random conversations. While chatting with my new friends, I learned that Thunderheist was to take the stage at two and yes, you are reading that correctly, 2am.

I decided to stick it out for the greater good and at 1:15 the opening act "Wallpaper" came out to do their set. Comprised of a lead singer dressed in a white sequins jacket accompanied by only a drummer, Wallpaper brought the house down with their cool vocal stylings, fierce percussions, and projections of different images on their back wall. They wrapped up their set with a very spunky and eccentric version of "Poison" by Bell Biv DeVoe that brought the audience to their feet.

Finally 2am rolled around and Thunderheist started their set. They began with new tracks to warm up the audience, but soon after launched into some old favorites that drove the die-hard fans wild. Even if you were a first time listener, the band had a way of pulling you into their dance vibe and keeping you there until the end of the show. Isis, the lead singer, seemed like your girl next door and what made her even more likeable was that she would reach out to her fans during the show and even hugged a few afterwards saying, "This is why I do it, for these people right here!" Thunderheist closed out the show with their dance hit "Jerk It" which involved Isis almost throwing herself into the audience and putting the microphone out for all her fans to scream along to. For a show that started at two in the morning I was very impressed, but next time I will have to schedule shows that don't go on past my bedtime.
