The fabulously kitsch hipster bar, Goodgod played host to Wordlife on Saturday. The club is an ex-latin bar that plays into a rockabilly theme and provides a tasteful alternative to the Ivy.
Wordlife showed they have a strong fan base by drawing a solid crowd for the celebration of new album Breakthrough/Small Talk. There was hardly a bum on a seat for the duration of their hour-long set and their audience interaction was the highlight of the evening.
The Duo provided a set full of catchy samples and chest-rattling beats that explain why they are able to draw the masses, but beyond that they seemed to have a limited repertoire. The calypso-style drum add-ons were uninspired, likewise the call and response auto-tune synth that was drawn on repeatedly throughout the set.
A good night out, but not a beacon of creativity. (LC)
