Krewella, the Chicago-based electronic dance group, came alive and the mostly represented millennial audience came through inside the sold-out show at Pomona’s Fox Theater on Saturday night. The group consisting of sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf along with Kris Trindl (aka – “Rain Man”) know how to perform for avid fans of electronic music with a dose of pop – tailor it towards house and dubstep while singing with a female finesse voice.
The show started with “Party Monster”, a fast and furious fist-pumping track. The crowds especially in the front pit came alive and showing their love with huge angry animal print signs. Think of it as a better version of a “hands up in the air” moment.
There was plenty of space to provoke an EDM version of “the soul train line dance” near the pit area. A definite rarity but it was a cool and vibe thing to witness. Other popular songs in their setlist included – “Dancing with The Devil”, “Live for The Night”, “This Is What It Feels Like”, and “Alive”.
During their acoustic song, “Human”, the Yousaf sisters showed proof that they are more than just any typical EDM artist that sing to the typical format of electronic music and give way to sexual innuendos in their album Get Wet. Rather, if this group has a following (and it showed well on Saturday), then it means the showmanship of the audience created the utmost respect for this group – during and after the concert where plenty of audience members were able to get their photos with Jahan and/or Yasmine and instantly get attention on their Instagram account immediately after.
Tonight was a great time to “party hard” and not think too hard on their choice of words or their singing abilities. Rather, take the night off and come alive.
