I first stumbled upon Great Good Fine Ok last year at Brooklyn Bowl after getting hooked up with a free pair of tickets. Having no idea who they were I didn’t have any expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised with their upbeat pop dance tunes that I haven’t been able to find in any other band lately. I was introduced to a glamorous robe with golden sequins all over it and my eyes were fixed on that for the most part. Speaking with Jon Sandler from the band last week, I started to appreciate his love for kimonos after he let me in on his journey to find the best vintage stores in the nation. The more I spoke with him and dug out information about GGFO my curiosity grew even bigger and I had high expectations for their show at Baby’s All Right.
This time around, the crowd was greeted with a turquoise sequined robe which clearly stated that he was ready to party. The room got hot pretty fast and Jon described how it felt like we were in a bikram yoga class. Nevertheless, the band members continued the show with their long sleeves and cared more about putting on a great show.
Even though the stage was pretty small and limiting for all four band members, they managed to project their energy by dancing and banging on glowing drum sticks. The crowd sang along and danced together, clearly not getting enough of their music. They finished their show with an epic Diamond Body pose which I can see getting popular among fans in the near future.
