With a recent appearance on late night television, it's no surprise that JEFF the Brotherhood played to packed audience last night at Off Broadway.

To get the night started, local favorites Sleepy Kitty opened. I admittedly never got the chance to see them live before, and was not disappointed by my experience. The duo played a heavy hitting set filled with great originals and some fantastic covers.

The rapper Juiceboxxx had one of the most intense high-energy sets I've ever seen, running across every inch of the stage. Throughout his set he proved how great he was at performing live, to the extent of climbing on stage equipment, and using anything that wasn't nailed to the ground to add to the tone of the set. Unfortunately, several times those standing in the front had to move back slightly for fear of getting hit with the microphone that he swung around repeatedly.

As JEFF the Brotherhood started assembling their set, the crowd pushed forward, providing an intense experience once the fog machine started. (Many people had to escape to the outdoors because of the smoke.) The crowd that attended seemed to be part of a long-listening following -- knowing all the words -- and provided as much entertainment as the band itself. Highlights of the night included a large mosh pit that didn't quit, and a fantastic organic set that had brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall choosing songs as they went, providing great sounds well into the night.
