Shy Child is touring with Dragonette, and bringing exactly what one should expect from an opening band. Their sounds and styles are very similar, but since they are only a two piece, they rely more heavily on sound engineers and technology to achieve that electropop sound. This different dynamic makes for a different energy level on stage, segueing into the headlining act perfectly. These New York City denizens are already gaining notoriety and have been actively touring The U.S., South America, Europe, and Japan. This may be the last time to check them out for a while, as they will continue on with tour with Dragonette to Manhattan’s Bowery Ballroom Friday night, and continue on down the East Coast.
Tickets are going for $12.00, doors open at 8:00pm. The Middle East is located on Mass. Ave. in Central Square, Cambridge. Both bands are out promoting new albums, and since this is the first stop on their week-long tour, expect some great energy and great excitement from both performances.
