Cut Copy Concert Review

By Nicole Spencer posted Jun 19, 2014 at 11:28 PM

WVUM's Campus Affairs Director, Nicole Spencer, made her way to Grand Central for the sold out show. Click through for her thoughts!



















Grand Central was dripping with good vibes on Wednesday when the indie electronic group Cut Copy made their way from Australia to the 305. I was lucky enough to catch their sold out live show. They started their animated set with "We Are Explorers", a groovy banger from their latest album, Free Your Mind. The whole crowd immediately began bouncing and dancing along to the music. While I was dancing I was also admiring the stage's aesthetic. The visuals included a mixture of neon colored lights (reminiscent of the album, Bright Like Neon Love) and projections of various landscapes. Not only were the visuals awesome, but the energy of the group itself was extremely infectious. I enjoyed watching them bop along to their own jams on stage while delivering an excellent performance. Their strongest point was at the end of their main set, when they completely shredded everything (in a good way) with  "Lights and Music", which just so happens to be the song that first attracted me to Cut CopyThe crowd went absolutely wild. Everyone knew the words, everyone's hands were up, and everyone was busting some serious moves. It was impressive. 

Speaking of impressive, I'd like to backtrack a bit and express how fantastic the opening acts were. First, DJ Nile Delta successfully warmed the crowd up with some mellow yet danceable beats and remixes. Then, the L.A. duo, Classixx (pictured below), played a short but sweet set, consisting of some irresistibly melodic songs, including a brilliant mix of "Psychic City" by YACHT, which had me dancing like a clown. Their sound is similar to the exuberant and synth-y tunes of Cut Copy, so the two meshed well together.




















I know I had a fantastic time because I woke up this morning sore all over from dancing the night away.
