​The last time I saw Telekinesis at The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern was just when I was taking my concert photography up a notch. Not a very big notch, mind you, as it was a step up from taking photos with my iPod Touch to taking photos with a point-and-shoot. I was even too timid to get really close to the band. My shots of Telekinesis and opening act Deep Sea Diver are here.

This time, Telekinesis were in town promoting their latest album, Ad Infinitum, which shows a change in Michael Benjamin Lerner's song writing from guitar driven power pop to more keyboard heavy tunes.

I am amazed that more people don't know about Telekinesis. They are such a cool band and the songs are so good, they should be playing to a sold out Horseshoe Tavern. Instead, a small but enthusiastic crowd gathered close to the stage to soak up the tunes.

The set was solid but way too short, in my opinion. I could have done with another 5-10 tunes easily, but I was satisfied by what we received. We got around 45 minutes of taught power pop delivered by a solid band. The drums held everything down, the guitar sounds were cool and it all came together very well. Can't wait 'til next time!
