Terminal 5, NYC 11.2.12 – Last week, one of my favorite new bands came to town to spread some of their love among NYC. I’m sure I can speak for everyone when I say that this ray of sunshine known as Grouplove couldn’t have come at a better time. After Hurricane Sandy beat us down and left us powerless for the better part of the week…I was ready to rock out.

I can’t say enough good things about this band. The energy that they bring to the stage is magnetic and chaotic.

For the encore, the band stretched it’s legs a little by doing a crowd favorite unplugged with everyone in the band up at the front of the stage. Later on, a surprising cover of Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” rounded out the set.
