My first thought as I walked into First Ave last night was “Oh. look there’s another old guy” – in my defense, I am an old guy and used to being way above average in age range at many shows. As I made my way closer to the stage I was surprised at the range of age groups in the crowd. Clearly Sofi Tukker has a wider fan base than I expected.
Mary Droppinz’s set was already underway when I arrived.
From the moment they hit the stage, their energy was infectious. There was constant movement and if you took your eyes away for a moment, you were likely to miss a cool moment.
Bob’s Dance Shop joined in on stage, and Sophie at one point moved to a raised beach chair in First Avenue’s owner’s lounge.
It may have been a Monday, but the party mood at First Ave rivaled any Friday or Saturday night.
