It’s been over three years since I first heard The Gay Blades’ addictive single “O-Shot” on an i-Tunes sampler, and I’ve been dying to catch them live ever since. I finally got my wish tonight as they erupted in front of a tiny crowd at Cicero’s. It was a criminally under-attended show but the band could care less. They slathered on the charisma and unleashed a glorious wall of sound upon the faithful few in attendance.

It was easily the most entertaining show I’ve seen all year and was a lot of fun to shoot. I’m glad I got to see the band in such an intimate setting but I’m looking forward to their return trip. I have a feeling they will be playing a much larger stage (with much better lighting, hopefully). It’s only a matter of time before this band breaks in a big way.
