USS enthusiasm

It's not a ship, it's a positive dance-party explosion.

"Every year there's a word and this year it's 'vindication'," says Ash Boo-Schultz, part one of the two-part Ontario dance party duo (can't forget his other half, Jason "Human Kebab" Parsons) that has been touring Europe with Walk Off the Earth this year. "We were playing in all these immaculate places...and I realized I was standing on a stage right where Kurt Cobain had been standing. It was the vindication of being there, 'I did it!' Those three words really help you feel good about yourself." Boo-Schultz's enthusiasm is contagious and it shows in the positive mantras and hilariously specific lyrical delights that bombard Approved, the band's 2011 EP. The duo is working on a new album with producer Tawgs Salter (Lights, Josh Groban)---"he sucks the best right out of you," says Boo-Schultz. So you can expect the same high-energy "motivational seminar, anarchist rally and aerobics class" experience to explode at The Seahorse and then keep right on exploding, hopefully forever.
