The Rapture reminded us of why they are the true dance-rock champions of the 2000’s. Their set at the Spin/Ray-Ban party was heavy on the classics, only playing a few cuts off the new LP such as “How Deep Is Your Love?”, which sounding 10x more epic live.

“Whoo! Alright – Yeah… Uh Huh” was insanely good, to the point where I was questioning why it doesn’t get more love by the general music public. Of course “House Of Jealous Lovers” was the true champion of the night, striking a chord with every living being in the firehouse. It was a heavy version that left me transfixed with goosebumps. Hearing that song live should be on everyone’s bucket-list, no questions asked.

Regardless of how you feel about the new LP, The Rapture are still a treat to see live. If you like punk ridden dance music that will make your rock out without being self conscious, there isn’t anyone better for the job.
