It was Saturday, October 30th and I was waiting behind a rhinoceros to get a whiskey-ginger. This particular evening at Lincoln Hall was comprised of 1/3 of a crowd donning Where's Waldo? costumes, a plethora of zombies, one Hawaiian Santa, and Steve Zissou, to name a few. Maybe it was because it was the Saturday of Halloween weekend. Or maybe it was because it was an 18+ show, but Lincoln Hall wasn't sold out. However, it was packed 3/4 with faithful fans.
At 10:35 PM Twin Sister took to the stage in complete cat face paint. This only made lead singer, Andrea Estella, that much more adorable. As fake smoke filled the stage the crowd stood placid, swinging back and forth like cattails in the breeze. The five tet bounced on the stage playing their power pop songs.
As The Morning Benders set up a dinosaur and bloody prom queen held hands making their way to the bar. Lincoln Hall began to fill up rapidly and on the ground floor, people were packed like sardines. Before The Morning Benders took to the stage the crowd's intensity grew. Entering the stage were a chef Chu, an Egyptian Pharaoh Chu, an alligator, and a guy with drunk eyes. The Morning Benders were all about dressing up. Before playing, "Cold War" lead singer, Chris Chu gave the warning, "If you wanna dance, you gotta find your groove and go for it.". It was a domino like reaction from the crowd. All at once their heads stopped bopping up and down and their entire body filled with dance fever.
