With a monsoon raging outside, up and comers Classless Act took the stage to open and man, when I tell you I was not prepared for the energy that was about to come off that stage, I am not playing around. Hailing from California, these fellas brought an incredible larger than life presence to such a small space. Exploding off the stage, engaging with the crowd, jumping around on a platform the size of someone’s back porch with reckless abandon; the music was loud and wild but incredible. I’ll admit I was concerned about the turnout for the show. Normally, Dorothy would have a packed house here in Nola, and Joyous Wolf brings in a decent crowd in their own right. At the beginning of the show, which again, was in the middle of several tornado warnings and torrential rain, Classless Act was up to the task of getting the early birds up and moving. Frontman Derek Day maintained a great rapport with the crowd, sourcing patrons from the bar that were maybe just waiting around for Dorothy and bringing them front and center to the stage. With smooth vocals and an infectious stage presence, this guy is someone to keep an eye on.
