So, the secret no one talks about is that some music reviewers write most reviews ahead of time and MadLib the particulars.
So here’s what me and my concert photographer friend came up with in advance.
Good music to, like, brush your teeth to.
Precise but vigorous.
And we weren’t wrong! Fujiya & Miyagi are dependable. There are no curve balls. Everything is understated but wholly groovy. It is the sound of a thousand indie dudes bobbing their head. Which is fun! If you’re an indie dude. Or an adorably cute and dorky photographer. Which is also not a bad thing!
The room was also packed with girls dancing. (And dudes.) And that is never a bad thing either!
What I’m saying is the band may be somewhat anodyne, but sometimes that is conducive to a good party. Would I see them again? Hell yes. My friend had a smile plastered on her face the whole time and I don’t think you can ask for much more that that.
