The video pretty much says it all. We saw Shiny Toy Guns, and they put on a great show. Their songs are kind of dark dance with gothic synths. The female pop vocals liven it up a bit. Guy labeled the genre “Space Emo,” which I think is a great description. I couldn’t believe how smooth the vocals sounded, especially the lead male vocalist, Chad Petree. Impressive. I also liked that fancy little spotlight he had on his guitar. Neat-O.
The band was grateful towards the crowd, and reminisced about a show they played in Nashville when they first started out. I really wanted to head to 12th and Porter after the show to see Jeremy Dawson’s (Shiny Toy Guns’ Synthesizer/Bass Player) DJ set, but it wasn’t in the cards.
Check out Shiny Toy Guns.
