KOLARS have hit on something magical. The Los Angeles duo have been around for a bit now, touring seemingly tirelessly and appearing all over the map (including Boise, Idaho) at festivals. Their dynamic, energy, and innovative brand of rock n roll seems to be catching on in earnest. They packed the Echo last week with an enthusiastic house.

Count me among the KOLARS faithful. There are few bands you can have a better time watching. Their unique playing style literally drives you to move–how can you watch drummer Lauren Brown groove while playing while listening to Rob Kolar’s sultry croon and not want to dance?
