Goodnight Goodnight

Goodnight Goodnight 1In a weekend of terrific music from local bands and musicians playing Dayton Music Festival around town, indie electronic shoegaze dynamo Goodnight Goodnight performed at Southpark Tavern on Saturday night. Playing several stellar tracks from their latest record Control, a cover of Bat for Lashes ‘Laura’ and a new song that the crowd much appreciated, this was a great show!

Goodnight Goodnight has been on a regional tour and the band has never sounded as tight and well, controlled as they did this past weekend. It is better to refer to the songs as compositions rather than songs because of the significant textures that go into the sonic soundscapes they create. Todd Herbert on keyboards and effects creates rhythms, melodies and fills that draw comparisons to Depeche Mode and New Order. Gary Thornton’s guitar playing and tone remind one of early Cure. Larry Evans on bass guitar adds exciting dimension to the songs. Amanda Thornton’s vocal are both emotionally powerful and light and ethereal all at once.

If you get an opportunity to see them, which we highly recommend, It will be a goodnight indeed.

Human Cannonball

If you have never seen Human Cannonball, then we feel sad for you. We have seen them many times and have never been disappointed. Great melodies, terrific rhythm, great arrangements all around and an energy that if it could be systematically gathered, would defeat any energy crisis. They played the Yellow Cab Tavern on Saturday with Smug Brothers and Swearing at Motorists. It was a good show.
