Wondering where Moving Units have been since the release of 2007's Hexes for Exes? Rather busy, it appears, between touring and brainstorming new material in preparation for a forthcoming EP. You'll be happy to know the boys haven't missed a beat in the past few years, their new songs reminiscent of the much beloved and highly danceable Dangerous Dreams, albiet a bit edgier.

The maturity of the new material didn't dissuade the mostly youngish crowd from rowdiness; lead singer Blake Miller spent a good deal of time delicately perched on the end of the stage, hands outstretched to the adoring fans. The only moment of pause came when two excited females made their way on stage to impress their friends dance with Miller and had to be escorted off. Miller quickly recovered, praising the attendees for their enthusiasm and energy. Between the three bouncing bandmates and their friends and family in the wings, the stage just wasn't big enough for the crowd to get too cozy. Dancing room only, right?
