About a recent show, Culture Bully's Erik Thompson said that the "7th Street Entry is a venue built specifically, it seems, for loud, sweaty rock shows." The Spinto Band aren't a group that fits the loud part, but don't be surprised if you find yourself surrounded by dancing, sweating peers once Delaware-based blog-pop sextet The Spinto Band take the stage. The band exudes melodic effortlessness, and all of the songs off of its latest effort, Moonwink, are affable and upbeat. But for a band who's on their sixth studio album, the fact that the record sounds like a group is search of a musical identity (there's hints of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah in the vocals, and a more caberet Broken Social Scene in the music) is disconcerting. Still, expect at the very least an energetic show as the band plays the more danceable selections (i.e., the first couple song off of Moonwink).
