The Gramophone was filled with the sounds of Austin-based band Bright Light Social Hour and local act Hope and Therapy Sunday night.

Hope and Therapy's lead singer, Hope Gaines, has a distinctive voice with great stage presence behind her keyboard. The band is dynamic, and had the crowd hooked by the second song. They ended their set with a bang, getting everyone pumped for Bright Light Social Hour's set.

Bright Light Social Hour has already made a big impression on the indie music scene with their debut self-titled, self-released album, released in 2010. Despite hitting a string of bad luck in July when their equipment was stolen, their luck turned when, in less than five days, their fans donated enough money to have everything replaced. This allowed Bright Light Social Hour to continue touring, and shows what a great following they already have, despite having just begun their career.

Although the playoff baseball game was on in the background, when Bright Light Social Hour plugged in and played their first chord, everyone turned immediately from the television and hit the dance floor. High points of the evening included some new material that made even the most timid wallflowers want to dance and sing along. The last song of the night included a jaw-dropping solo from drummer Joseph Mirasole and A.J. Vincent showing off his equally impressive skills on the keyboard. Jack O'Brien and Curtis Roush make the most of the bass and guitar pairing, trading leads and supporting the beats of one another. This show was one of the best of 2012, and I can't wait to see them again.
