Off Broadway played host to an outstanding showcase of local talent on Friday, August 2, as Middle Class Fashion celebrated the release of "Jungle," its second album.

Supporting Middle Class Fashion on its big night were Kid Scientist, HUMDRUM and surprise guests Bruiser Queen.

Kid Scientist was first to the stage, and true to its name, its pop grooves experimented with sounds as diverse as accordion, trumpet and electric drums. Still, the core of the band's music is melodic, keyboard-driven pop with enough beat to provoke some dancing in the early crowd.

HUMDRUM had the benefit of a packed house as it dropped a more rocked-out pop on the crowd, complete with rolling bass lines and twin guitars. Its upbeat-if-eccentric songs set the stage well for Middle Class Fashion, who soon took the stage to the roars of fans and their fellow musicians.

Middle Class Fashion's lead singer Jenn Malzones chops at crafting a pop hook are undisputed, and the night proceeded as a sing-a-long of sorts. In a surprise close to the show, local duo Bruiser Queen jumped on stage for a super-band finale that literally knocked the power out on stage. A quick reset was needed before Middle Class Fashion could close out the night with an encore and a smile.
