The Buddha Den Showcase Presents: Vanity Theft @ South Park Tavern 1.31.09

...after a torturous week that relegated most of the Dayton area to an unbearable level of cabin fever, it was apparent early on that people were excited to head down to South Park Tavern and enjoy some music. Luckily, we were all in for a treat as Vanity Theft served up an evening of near-perfect indie pop. Proving that their impeccable debut, Post-Script Pace Yourself, is no fluke, these young ladies a formidable live unit. With the understated, yet solid rhythm section of Lindsey Keene on bass and Elyse Driskill on drums, the guitar attack of Brittany Hill deftly moved between driving power chords and slashing rhythmic shifts. Rotating between vocals, guitar, keys, and glockenspiel, Alicia Grodecki fronts the band with a conviction and self-confidence that belies her youth. Their cover of the Yeah Yeah Yeah's "Gold Lion" proved the band's mettle and more. Pulling the crowd in with chants and claps, Vanity Theft proved they are one of the finest young talents going in Dayton...
