Let the Beat Geeks rock!

We, the people of Athens have been begging and pleading for more dance bands, and our pleas have finally been answered! Introducing the Beat Geeks... You haven't truly moved till you've heard their sound!

I swear to you, everything singer Luke Galloway of the Novanauts (Kalvinova) touches is utter brilliance. I wouldn't say if it wasn't true. Based out of Atlanta, the Beat Geeks, his latest project with Bobby Drake and K Poindexter, had their debut show in Athens this Thursday, and WOW! It was purely unbelievable. After just one show, these guys are well on their way to giving the Black Eyed Peas a run for their money. Everyone in the Caledonia was enthralled by the Beat Geeks' tunes, throwing their hands up in the air, jumping to the beat, and singing along to the words of their amazing single Sweat (Lose Control). Judging from the crowd's reaction, I can honestly say that the band's original tracks are all ready-made hits. In between those songs, they showed off even more of their talents with some mind-blowingly awesome covers of Usher's OMG, Mike Posner's Cooler than Me, and yes, even Antoine Dodson's internet sensation Bed Intruder.

And seriously, the fans just couldn't get enough of the Beat Geeks' R&B/dance pop style! As the show wound to a close, the room was filled with shouts of "encore" and "one more song." Encored during a debut show? It's unheard of! Because they haven't even had the chance to create enough songs to keep these ravenous fans at bay yet, they played their to-be-released single Where the Party At for us one more time. Such fun! I'm not kidding you... if you like to dance (and I know that you do), you just can't miss another spectacular Beat Geeks show!
