    They were terrible at The Roxy last year, I hope they got their shit together.

    They were really on point at Coachella, I'd love to seem them again at their own show

    Fantastic set. Really enjoyed it. A perfect thing for you weekend 2 goers, as you seek out some noon shade at Gobi to some chill good music.

    I didn't care for them much. Dragonette afterwards was super fun though.

    I thought they sounded great. They could use a little more stage presence. The lead singer doesn't interact with the audience much.

    Great set that was well-received by the audience and the singer looked genuinely appreciative of the crowd's response. Some of their stuff is chill but some is pretty dark, almost in a Portishead vein. If you are going on the second weekend, pay heed to the comment above from the Dragonette fan. If you like frothy uptempo 80s dance music, you are not likely to enjoy Keep Shelly in Athens. We left Dragonette after two songs. If you like to chew bubble gum, while washing a Cinnabon down with a Frappucino, Dragonette may be your band.

    i agree that dragonette is some 80's shopping-mall-montage-music but goddamn if i didn't have a blast at their show. singer is super-cute and the crowd was fun. i walked away a fan having only known "hello".

    Whoa chief calm down. Not really a Dragonette fan...only knew "Hello". They were more fun at that time of the day for me is all. I know it's not a perfect comparison, but if you want to hear a slower more instrument driven band then I'd highly suggest Other Lives over Keep Shelly. They have headliner written all over them in the future. Although they're on different days. So go see both.

    Well you've redeemed yourself - Other Lives was one of the best shows of the weekend. I'll even grudgingly admit that "Hello" is ear candy - a bit too sweet for my taste but no one could honestly say they hate it. As for Keep Shelly, they are far less experienced than Other Lives but have tremendous potential.
