Dancing at the Disco with The Dance Party

Who would've known that Prince Georges County gave Text Colorbirth to a hipster indie pop/electronica band ? Well THE DANCE PARTY (TDP)  has put the DANCE back in PARTY. This high-energy rock group is from PG and DC. Think of Metro Station meets B-52s. Now that's TDP. These guys have released and EP and a their debut album, "Friction!, Friction! Friction!". 

With their catchy lyrics about "dying on the dance floor" and having "new wave love" these guys are in position to take over the pop world. These guys are also phenomenal live. TDP even invites you on the stage for a bit of dancing =] TDP's shows tend to sell out (especially at the Rock and Roll Hotel in DC) so make sure you get your tickets to their next show.

Fun Fact: Who would have known that their lead singer, Mick Coogan, is an AP English teacher at Northwestern High School in Hyattsville, MD.  I would have loved to have him as my english teacher!

You can check The Dance Party out on Purevolume and Myspace:

BONUS TREAT: TDP is interviewed by the DCist. Go check it out (it's pretty funny)!

We Are, The Pulse

From rock to bluegrass; from classical to electronica; from pop to rap...and everything in between. Music is the pulse that defines who we are. Music is the pulse that makes us believe in anything and everything. WE are The Pulse; a blog about music and everything about music. We take you bake to our roots in DC/MD, and across the world to bring you the best in what underground music has to offer. Whether we are reviewing and interviewing a local high school ska band or an internationally touring pop sensation, we've got it covered inside and out. Each week we come to you with another band or artist that you HAVE to listen to. After spending hours researching, browsing the web, and procrastinating, we have found the best of the best. disagree? let us know about your favorite groups and we might feature them in one of our weekly artist featurettes. We will also announce upcoming tours, and even post about extraneous other events that pop up in the music industry now and then. Now sit back, turn up the volume, and take a look and a listen at what the Pulse has to offer.
