Gym Class Heroes at the Congress Theater 10/24

-A.S. During my senior year of college, one of my roommates was often in charge of the music playlist. Now, we’re all guilty of over playing certain songs that we get hooked on, but this roommate sometimes took it to overkill. I think the only song I drank to more than “Throw Some D’s” (I wish I was kidding) that year was the Gym Class Heroes’ “Cupid’s Chokehold.” Travis McCoy asked the crowd Friday night who only knew them because of the ‘girlfriend song.’ I would have had to raise my hand, except that I have another friend that has been playing their new album, The Quilt, on the verge of overkill.Travis McCoy must have been showing some girl in the front row his O face.

The Congress Theater was surprisingly full by the time the Gym Class Heroes took the stage. The younger crowd put up their appropriate digits for “Peace Sign/Index Down.” Then I was having flashbacks of countless hours of beer pong as the place erupted for “Cupid’s Chokehold.” A “Flashing Lights” intro segued into “Blinded By the Sun.”

Travis McCoy paid tribute to DJ AM and Travis Barker by asking everyone in the crowd to hug the person standing next to them. McCoy also proclaimed that he was innocent, before welcoming Estelle back to the stage for “Guilty As Charged.” Estelle’s band members also joined them and by songs end were doing the Can Can.McCoy demonstrating his air piano skills.

McCoy was an engaging front man, often making faces at the crowd in between verses. Their crowd loved them, and sang along to every word of “Clothes Off!” They finished their set with my favorite track off the new album, as McCoy admitted that he sometimes has trouble keeping his hand out of the metaphorical “Cookie Jar.”
