Anytime I attend a show at the Troub, I know I’m gonna be in for a good time. It’s basically like a guaranteed win. But never would I have guessed it’d be this much of a win. Icona Pop pretty much tore the roof off with their sexy ass synths alone last Saturday night. My ears are still ringing, my heart’s still racing…I think I may be suffering from post traumatic awesomeness.
You guys. Excitement is not enough to describe what I felt when Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt took the stage. Not only do these girls create bomb electronic dance jams, which is already hot within itself, but they are also too gorgeous for their own good. Surprised they haven’t taken over the world yet? Me too. Besides looking swag as hell, they busted out all the songs off their Iconic EP, all the while pumping their fists into the air, swigging beers, and feeding off the insatiable energy of the crowd. The Troub is small, not living room small, but pretty damn small, which made it the most perfect venue for an intimate rock out dance sesh.
They ended up closing with We Got The World and I Love It for the encore (no surprises there). However, I didn’t expect Jawo to pull a fan on stage, which consequently led the entire crowd to bum rush the stage (including me). This resulted in one of the most epic dance parties of my entire 22 years of being. Well played, Icona pop, well played.
I don’t care, I loved it,
