Our regular readers know well that I am a sucker for anything with even a hit of New Wave. So it’s no surprise when I heard Dance Assault’s description as “would have made it perfectly at home on the radio in 1983” they jumped on my “must see” list. Checking out some of their music peaked my interest even further. They remind me of a happy Depeche Mode with touches of other Brit Synth Bands thrown in all wraped up in a modern, danceable package. Well it looks I will get that chance next week at the Icehouse when Dance Assault headlines a show supported by Minneapolis Duo Dennis and Hi-Fi Cali.
The show is on Friday 7/7 with tickets available at the door for a measly $ 7.
Dance Assault is a Minneapolis-based electro-pop group blending equal parts synth-pop & funk. The group originated as a one-man project, but has since evolved into a 3-piece band whose songs are entirely written and produced by their front man, Carson, who also plays synthesizers ad sings lead vocals in the group.
