A lot of fans of Capital Cities must be really grateful to Craig's List right now, as it was here that the LA pop duo first met and began a fruitful collaboration as jingle writers before emerging as a fully-fledged electro pop unit. But even being heralded by Perez Hilton as "The best band in Los Angeles," doesn't begin to describe how good their sound is- you'll be hooked on their immediately catchy dance beats in "Safe and Sound" but in "Center Stage" there's shadows of funk influences that will trap you in. Their first full length album featuring all new material will be released June 4, which gives their performance tonight at House of Blues a bold new freshness. Come get lifted up tonight with Capital Cities and Gold Fields.
