Riding high on the release of their debut LP, Blood Moon, Apes and Androids took the stage in front of a tightly packed audience at Hiro Ballroom. Anyone familiar with the NYC band’s live show can tell you that the inimitable experience is a bit like rolling a rave, Studio 54 circa 1978 and an art camp sing-a-long all into one. More often than not glitter, glo-sticks and loads of sweat, thanks to gyrating bodies, abound; and, without a doubt, lead vocalists Brian Jacobs and David Tobias can be seen sporting their respective staple green skeleton tee and black and white ensemble. All this was the case, with a few masked dancers thrown in for good measure, as Apes and Androids lit a figurative fire under the asses of all in attendance at the aforementioned Hiro show. The eclectic crowd seemed so convinced by the band’s flawless performance of soon-to-be hits like Golden Prize and Nights of the Week, you got the feeling most were meanwhile perfecting their ‘I knew them when’ claim-to-fame.
