FreezePop coming to Houston.

Freezepop made thier debut in Houston at the Proletariat Sunday 23rd. I didn't know too much about the band hailing from Boston, Mass., only the info and mp3's off of thier website and figured why not bring them down for the fans they do have. I honestly didn't know what to expect, Houston can be funny sometimes with shows. Opening for the night was Cuba Gooding Jr. who recently informed me that one of the members from Freezepop really enjoyed his set and that they are talking about working together sometime in the near future, so be on the lookout for that. I was really surprised in the turnout and all the fans that knew the lyrics to most of their songs.

I talked with Liz from Freezepop and asked if they have ever played at conferences like CMJ or SXSW, and she said that "alot of people feel that we are too POP." Now when I think of pop, I think of commercial pop music, but Freezepop is more of a electronic, synth, bubble gum style of pop, that is quirky and entertaining.

The three members brought energy to the stage from beginning to end and were even brought back to the stage for a closing encore. Thanks to the Proletariat, Travis, Fredster, Spinnin Kitties, Stiletto, and Cuba Gooding Jr for making this show a success.
