Indie pop act Twin Shadow and LA disco revivalists Poolside took control of the Glass House in Pomona on Saturday night, marrying the sounds of overt emotion and glittery dancefloors for the packed venue to enjoy.
Before George Lewis Jr. and his touring team hit the stage, Poolside set
out to give the audience a taste of their slower, more relaxed take on
shimmery dance music. Judging by what was coming out of the speakers, it
sounded like a group of rogue, disco DJ's from somewhere in the '70s
had taken over the place, deciding to bring instruments on stage instead
of turntables. Not only did they do well in keeping the audience
interested before the main event, but Poolside would have fit in
perfectly in Tony Montana's 1983 Miami as well. We mean
that as a compliment, as Poolside did a fantastic job of representing
bygone times of disco balls, loud outfits, and coked-up lounge lizards.
