Earlier this week I had the pleasure of seeing STRFKR at the Gothic Theatre here in Denver, CO. I went into the show without having listened to much of their music and so I did not have extremely high expectations. However, my expectations were far exceeded as soon as my friends and I walked into the venue. We entered as the first opener, Psychic Twin, was mid-set and their music definitely set the mood for the rest of the night. Their Stranger Things-esque arpeggios and illuminated wire dresses quickly had us in an 80s trance. The second opening act, Gigamesh, continued the hypnotic spell, adding a more upbeat, dance friendly element. STRFKR expanded upon both previous acts, combining high energy and a syn-driven sound to create night filled with dancing and confetti. To top off their set of fun-filled music, their performance featured a crew of backup dancersdressed as spacemen! Check out this short video recap of the show and be sure to catch these guys in person if they come to your city.
