Casiokids

The final act was the one I knew the least about, Casiokids an electronic funk outfit from Norway. The drummer came out wearing an enormous monkey head and then things got strange. Every other European band I’ve seen this year has looked miserable in the surprisingly mild summer here. Casiokids came out with members wearing a crushed velvet suit, a yellow sweatshirt and long sleeve shirts. Looking online their country’s average high is 69 degrees Fahrenheit in August. Add that to the high energy show, it’s really kind of impressive.

The music the band played was long drawn out funk stompers that had the whole pier dancing. A few members of the band shared the singing duties, but all of their voices were so fragile and crystalline when laid over the driving grooves underneath.

Around the midway point, Rebecca from Slow Club came out and added percussive duties and re-energized everyone in the crowd and in the band. Charles donned the full monkey suit and danced around with a tambourine to everyone’s enjoyment. [King of the Gigabitches]

UK label Moshi Moshi‘s 10th anniversary tour visited NYC’s South Street Seaport on Friday, August 7th. Casiokids, Slow Club and The Wave Pictures made up the triple-bill. Photos and videos of the show (including the Casiokids+Slow Club collaboration desribed above) are below…
