I really like The Zolas. They were definitely one of the acts that made me want to endure the scorching sunshine beating down on a parking lot in The Portlands for NXNE. I caught The Zolas live for the first time quite recently when they played at Lee's Palace back in March and I've been looking forward to seeing them again ever since. Those pics from Lee's are here.

The Zolas' music is such great, smart, dance-able, energetic and absurdly well-crafted indie pop. The tunes are often unabashedly catchy and incorporate fun samples along with their addictive melodies, engaging lyrics and superb music. For this NXNE show, they played a hit-filled set that I enjoyed from start to finish. I'm so glad I got to catch this genuinely awesome band and enjoy their tasty pop tunes live again.

I was going to post my favourite tunes from their set, but then I ended up with every tune from their set. I guess that shows how much I like these tunes. Listen:

"Molotov Girls"

"Get Dark"

"Invisible"

"Fell in Love with New York"

"Ancient Mars"

"Knot In My Heart"

"Freida on the Mountain"

"This Changes Everything"

"You're Too Cool"

"Strange Girl"

"Escape Artist"

"CV Dazzle"

"Swooner"
