New York-based producers and electronic music duo The Knocks turned The Independent into a raging house party last Thursday on the SF stop of their “Dancing With Myself Live Tour.” Pumping the venue full of remixed favorites, classic covers and original material, The Knocks treated a sold-out crowd to a bass-driven setlist by covering songs from all three of their EPs. DJ B-Roc and JPlatt provided live vocals and percussion, injecting new life into their electronically produced tracks and plenty of movement on the dance floor.

Even though The Knocks cut their set somewhat short, they kept the performance fluid while attempting to coerce fans into continuing the party at their after-hours DJ set in SOMA. Regardless of their success in doing so, The Knocks proved they could throw down as both producers and artists in their own right. Catching a rare “live show” opportunity with the group is few and far between, but one that anyone in attendance that evening will soon not forget. Los Angeles-based songwriter Phoebe Ryan opened the show.
