“If you didn’t see me, then you weren’t on the dance floor…”

This may simply be lyrics from Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.’s current single, but it’s also an apt description of what it’s like to see them live. Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. is quirky, funny, but above all, they are a blast to dance along with. The indie pop act brought their brand of dance music all the way from to Detroit to Austin, Texas for a night of dance fun at Emo’s.

Co-headlining Motion City Soundtrack & Relient K tour offers a taste of each band

Co-headlining Motion City Soundtrack & Relient K tour offers a taste of each band

A co-headlining tour causes a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand, each band gets decently full sets. Yet on the other hand, no matter who you came to see, you can’t help but wish for more. In the case of the other night’s Relient K and Motion City Soundtrack co-headlining show at Emo’s in Austin, I was happy to hear so many great songs from each band, but call me spoiled; I couldn’t help but wish for even more. With three bands on the bill playing 45 minutes each, it was a great taste of each, but not quite enough to satiate my appetite.
