Active Child @ Mohawk - 5/4/2012
Active Child's tour with Balam Acab and Superhumanoids came through Austin earlier this month for a show at Mohawk (5/4), complete with lasers and fog machines. Brian Gray from Austin Town Hall spoke really highly of the show, complimenting Pat Grossi's vocal abilities in a live setting and the crowd's constant engagement. He also offers, "If you are on the fence about Active Child, go to a show."
Meanwhile, as others have hinted at in the past, Balam Acab, as great as he is recorded, may not be much of a live act: "But no matter the music, one guy, several sequencers, Macbook and an 808 do not captivate, especially on an outdoor stage with static lighting."
