Last night I had the opportunity to see one of my VERY favorite bands: Bonde do Role. In Gainesville (FL) of all places. (shocking I know) I was excited and nervous to see their performance bc their lead female vocalist Marina left the band in December. And on the album she works it out!
First things first: opening band: The Death Set
To sum them up: crazy, screaming, mad energy, two drummers. I personally thought it would be cooler if they had two drummers with one arm so that they could be like “Take that Def Leppard!”, but ya win some, ya lose some. Overall: A
OK! BONDE DO ROLE!
No longer 2 guys(Gorky & Pedro) and 1 girl. Now they have added Laura and Ana (who apparently were added to the band through some contest in Brazil). 2 guys + 2 girls= VERBAL CRAZINESS!!! It was insane. The parts that Marina used to sing are now split amongst Ana and Laura with Ana singing the lead more often. She killed it. They all did.
There was nonstop dancing, grinding, silly string, water splashing, sick beats…pure Brazilian craziness at its best. One of the most hilarious moments during the show was a segment called “Let’s teach Ana English”. Being the classy American’s that we are the suggestions were: Pussy, BTFU (yeah, that’s right), I want weed, and my personal favorite “There’s something sexy about Hannah Montana”, yeah for realz, which led to random shouts of Haaannaaah Montaaana throughout the show. Pretty much, I want a shirt that says: BRAZILIANS DO IT BETTER.
