Forever The Sickest Kids April 23, 2011 Toads Place, New Haven, CT


I wish that I could just get a little mini Forever The Sickest Kids and carry it around with me everywhere.

The FTSK boys know how to put on a show.  

I've been a fan of these boys for a very long time, but it never clicked in me just how good they were.  To me, they were the go-to party band, bubblegum and fun.  When I saw them live, they were still really pop and goofy, but ever so much more than that.  I saw that they had real shining talent.  I can't even believe I failed to recognize that.
The audience interaction was amazing.  Calling the show like 'being in your best friends house with a HUGE living room with a real lot of friends"  The crowd was so enthusiastic that the early show left everyone more energized then they started out.  The non stop dancing to the amazing beats  should have sent everyone to a hot shower, but FTSK kept the party going.  No rest for the weary.  The crowd fed off the bands energy and it was electric.
The stage was far too small for these 5 guys and their light boxes but they worked the space with precision often stepping back from each other when a surfing fan made it up to the stage. That crowd surfing thing was a disaster waiting to happen.  Luckily Toads security has the skill of lifting kids up by their belts and throwing them side stage.  Way to Go, Guys. 
We interviewed Caleb Turman and Marc Stewart and will have that up for you shortly.  We found these guys to be sincere and lovable, true professionals in a job they adore.
Their enthusiasm, like their energy was contagious.

The band played through songs like "Hey Brittany" and "Woah Oh!" and as they were all jumping around, it was obvious that they were having fun.  They were all smiles and jokes as they too played a short set.
Toads Place has been booking these 'early shows', starting at 5pm clearing out by 10 in order to throw 'dance parties'.  I understand the monetary side of 'the biz' but hacking bands down to 6-10 songs each really just left us wanting more.
I'm happy to announce there were no bullets flying on this particular night.

Forever The Sickest Kids are so sick, they need to come back but stay longer.
