Hot Hot Heat & friends @ the Habitat

What did you do Monday night? If you weren’t at the Habitat enjoying a delish doublevodkaclubsodawithalime (or four) and some piping hot nachos, you missed out on a little show put on by Rich Aucoin, Hey Rosetta!, and Hot Hot Heat. Sucks for you.

I need to make some apologies to Aucoin, because I was a little skeptical of his whole crowd interaction thing at first; I like to warm up to a guy before I commit to any kind of dancing or singing along. That said, I was completely won over by the end of the set. I mean, he brought out a parachute! Remember playing with parachutes in elementary school? And the joy that brought to your young little heart? Yeah, you do.

Hey Rosetta! were fantastic, I guess, if you’re into that really sweeping, beautiful kind of music that makes you want to just close your eyes and immerse yourself in. Not everyone’s jam, I know, but by far my favourite part of the evening.

And congratulations to Hot Hot Heat for actually getting me out of my seat (on my fourthish drink and all) to dance. “Talk to Me, Dance with Me”? So good. SO GOOD.
