Out And About: Capital Cities At Webster Hall

    At first glance of LA based synth-pop duo, Capital Cities, I wouldn't have pegged Sebu Simonian and Ryan Merchant as the voice behind the indie-gone-mainstream hit, "Safe And Sound." I was at night number two at NYC's Webster Hall. While I would like to call this a concert, I just cant. It was a party with a great band, but I'm not complaining because it was fun.

    Opening with "Tell Me How To Live," "Chartreuse," and "Origami," Capital Cities launched into a tongue and cheek rendition of "Stayin Alive" by the Bee Gees and a little Michael Jackson "Remember The Time" riff. Then suddenly it was Christmas. Sebu and Ryan gave a nice arrangement of gifts to the audience compliments of NYC's finest shopping establishments: an umbrella, an egg slicer, panty hose, and a Horizon 2 video game. Party.

    The set was a ton of fun. While I cant say I knew every song, they did play another impromptu jam of some Prince, more Michael Jackson "PYT" and TLC "Waterfalls," which then went into "Safe and Sound" and when I tell you the floor was bouncing during it, trust. I was completely fired up after leaving, I had a great time not knowing what to expect, Seb and Ryan were so much fun, not only wanting everyone to dance, but ensure high recommendations to see their show in the future.
