Get Footloose: Illegal Dancing Cut Copy Style.

Believe it or not, it is against the law to dance in most New York City bars. Establishments that do not hold a cabaret license are breaking the law if they allow their patrons to dance; if caught, they can be subject to fines and shutdown.

This caused something of a problem for Brooklyn’s Studio B. When Cut Copy were invited to play a set in the Live at Studio B series the sweaty crowd couldn’t help being whipped into an arse shaking indie-dance frenzy.

The Melbourne band's set covered the best of their two albums, highlights being the three guitar attack of So Haunted, retro synths and hand claps on Future and the euphoric Hearts On Fire.

Unfortunately this will be the last of the Live at Studio B series, the club was shutdown shortly after Cut Copy’s show. You however can see Cut Copy when they play Trackside in Canberra on November 22nd.
