The track "Pretty" by Eyes Lips Eyes opens up with the line "Come to the party". This pretty accurately describes their show in Tommy's- they put on an incredibly fun show, with Tony Hello completely cutting loose, dancing his heart out, and jumping around stage with his tambourine. They also do a great cover of "Psycho Killer." The chorus then comes with "Make my pain your delight, I won't put up a fight." Taking sadness and turning it into catchy dance grooves seems to be their jam. Check out their video for the song Lumiere:
While sunshiny on the surface, the verses actually draw you into the story of Tony Hello's experience taking care of his gravely ill father. As Spencer Peterson said to Spinner earlier this year, "Sometimes a casual portrayal of sadness can be far more unsettling than overt dramatics."
