Crowdsurfing at shows is a common occurrence. A bandmember surfing the crowd atop his keyboard? That was a first for this fairly seasoned concertgoer and happened at last night’s BV-presented La Femme show (3/23) at Glasslands. It was the capper to one of the most bonkers, sweaty, fun shows I have been to in a long time.

Glasslands was absolutely packed by the time the Parisian band took the stage. Having seen them at our SXSW day party, I knew La Femme were good but I wasn’t expecting such a crowd reaction. Especially on a Sunday night. This audience — which, total guess, seemed about 1/3 French — was there to party and dance, as was the band who played for almost an hour and a half. By the end of it, singer Sacha Got was stripped to a Speedo and humping his keyboard. But the music never stopped, La Femme knocked out their ultra-catchy new wave spy music — they played nearly everything (if not actually everything) from last year’s great Psycho Tropical Berlin (complete with Theremin). What a show!

If you missed it, La Femme play the slightly more upscale Chez Andre at The Standard in the East Village tonight. The early show (7 – 9 PM) is free but you do need to RSVP to aohayon@standardhotel.com. They’ll also open for both NYC Trail of Dead shows (3/28 at MHOW and 3/29 at Bowery Ballroom) and tickets are still available.

The rest of the show was fun too. Future Punx kicked things off with a tight set of synthy new wave — complete with projected visuals — and Regal Degal previewed a bunch of songs from their new album which was produced by Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor and will be out on Terrible Records later this year. I had a good time DJing this show too.
