Hollywood, CA- The Big Pink sure know how to throw a damn good party. Whether performing at a local music festival, a communal artist space or a nondescript, abandoned loft space, Robbie Furze and company always put on one hell of a show, and always have me longing for more music. When I received an email about them playing another intimate, late night gig, but this time at the legendary bikini bar Cheetah’s in Hollywood, I decided that sleep would have to wait for the weekend.

When I arrived, the line waiting to get in was wrapped around the building. I saw a handful of friends patiently waiting, and when I asked them how they were doing, they longingly responded that they had been waiting in line for about an hour. Yowza.

Inside, the venue was packed. Patrons were shoulder to shoulder waiting in anticipation. I noticed a few empty seats at the bikini bar stage, where I quickly placed my posterior. I soon realized why those seats were empty, when the venue’s dancers started performing between sets. Needless to say, I opened my wallet up a couple times to make sure that I deserved the seat at the stage.

When The Big Pink started their performance, I anticipated that the dancers would leave the stage, but to my, and I’m sure a majority of others, delight, the nubile females continued to perform as the band rocked it upstage. It was a pretty surreal experience. With the awesomely loud music, intensely pulsing lights, and the seemingly choreographed dancing, it felt like I was at a taping for what seemed like the most badass music video ever.

As per usual, The Big Pink slayed on the sonic front. There were a few new faces on stage this evening, and a couple of special guest performers- including the ever sublime Io Echo- but it was still the same visceral The Big Pink that I just can’t get enough of. Their new album can’t come soon enough.
