Colorado-based The Magic Beans, currently on tour in support of their latest album Casino Cabaret , found themselves at Buffalo Iron Works on Saturday, April 7. While the calendar may indicate spring, the thermometer said otherwise, but The Magic Beans with support from Formula 5 wasted little time warming up the enthusiastic crowd. Formula 5 treated the audience to a 20+ minute version of original “Blue” and nearly as much time on a jammed out cover of Don Henley’s “Dirty Laundry.” The Magic Beans put on one helluva show with the crowd dancing straight through until 1am. Highlights included “Mission” and “More” off Casino Cabaret plus a huge cover of Prince’s “I Wanna be your Lover” after “Lost and Found.” The Beans are the real deal when it comes to jams that make you dance, and Formula 5 is right there alongside them.
Check out The Magic Beans this Thursday at The Hollow in Albany with Let’s Be Leonard and, also on Thursday, check out Formula 5 with Goose, Animal Reporters and Bee the Band at DROM in NYC.
