Magic Sword's sound is a cross between European club music and whatever Han Solo blasts over the Millennium Falcon's P.A. system when he punches it into hyperspace.

And the crowd got spacey and epic with Magic Sword Dec. 5 at Neurolux. 

The evening began with Street Fever, a solo artist wearing a mask that made him look like a member of The Ood (Doctor Who fans know what we're talking about). Street Fever laid down heavy, danceable beats and showed off an aptitude for stage design, with strobe lighting, LED lights and vertical columns arranged around him that would light up at strategic points in a given song. 

Magic Sword's music aspires to a vast scope, with long buildups to thunderous crescendos, and synth and guitar riffs straight out of hair metal's glory days in the mid-1980s. In conjunction with the band's penchant for theatricality (at its most recent performance—an impromptu dance party outside Neurolux last month—the band was shooed away by police), this added up to an invigorating, if deafening, evening.
