Headliners Cold Blood Club brought their A-game to their spirited set at the SoundDessert showcase on Friday, March 23rd at The Bowery Electric. Donned in SoundDessert shades (the night’s swag), the banned entertained with bold electronic dance tracks.
Their infectious melodies, not to mention boundless energy, had people up on their feet and getting down on the floor. With all the fun Cold Blood Club was having jumping around the stage, it was hard to resist taking part. Guitarist Tom Stuart even sprang onto the floor at times, unable to be limited to the confines of stage right. To his left Hilary Davis whirled with her violin alongside bassist Jesse Reno, while drummer Shin Kamei played with intensity and style, in a dapper white blazer. At the mics vocalists Kendra Jones and Bradley Peterson belted out each song with cool confidence.
On the track “White Boyz” Kendra sings, “I need a nice white boy…give me a blue-eyed toy,” and shouted mid-song for all the white boys in the audience to come up to the stage. A little timid, most of the boys weren’t feeling quite brave enough to honor her request. Kendra didn’t let them off the hook that easy though. Finishing the song, she asserted that the next time she calls for some white boys, they better come forward! Take note male readers. You’ve been warned. So if you’re going to need some liquid courage for an up-close-encounter with the striking Ms. Kendra Jones at the next Cold Blood Club show, plan accordingly.
Cold Blood Club is putting the finishing touches on their album, which I hear should be out around late spring. Stay tuned for updates. Want more Cold Blood Club? The dynamos deliver the goods at Bar Matchless this Friday, March 30th.
