It was a perfect storm of Awesome: Petty Morals, the Go-Go’s, and Allston all came together this past Saturday night for the best live dance party we’ve experienced in some time.
The Boston dance rock crew were holding court at Wonder Bar for one of the various Awesome Day Fest parties when they busted out a cover of the Go-Go’s ’80s pop classic “We Got The Beat,” and the reverberations were felt up and down Harvard Avenue.
Luckily for us and card-carrying members of the morning-after crew, we’re able to relive the magic within the depths of midweek misery since Mick Murray of In Your Face Photo was there to capture some video. We expect more Awesome Day Fest videos to start slowly emerging across the internet, including clips of the bands that shared the Wonder Bar stage with Petty Morals (the mud-flavored post-punk of Eldridge Rodriguez, the pop powder keg we call Party Bois, and Boston synth pop legends Freezepop), but this is a good jump-off point.
Plus, it’s one of the greatest songs ever written.
Fire up the video below and get the beat for yourself.
