With more than a dozen bands performing, free popcorn, face painting, and costumes and decorations in full force, this year's circus was exhilarating. Bands such as Downtown/Union, the Little Ones, Andy Clockwise, and of course the Henry Clay People turned in great sets alongside a slew of other bands performing full-on electric sets or side stage acoustic sets on the patios of the Echo and Echoplex. Attendance seemed down, or at least nowhere near capacity, which is a shame because the event had none of the pretentiousness that so often accompanies rock shows and instead truly felt like a community event. I for one am looking forward to next year.

Ra Ra Riot @ The Music Box at Henry Fonda Theater

I've seen Ra Ra Riot many times before and this show at the Music Box at Henry Fonda Theater was no different. The energy they brought when touring for their first album The Rhumb Line was intensified by a thousand this time around for their sophomore album The Orchard. The show never had a dull moment. The energy each member brings lifts you up like a surge of electricity running through your veins and makes you dance and sing to every song. By and large, the highlight of the night was "You and I Know," the debut vocal performance of violinist Alexandra Lawn. Her soft, high ranged vocals made jaws dropped, mixed with the powerful tremolo picking solo of guitarist Milo Bonacci took the show to new epic heights. From the looks of it, there's no stopping these Syracuse, New York natives from taking the indie scene to places its never seen before.
