Dogs in Ecstasy helps close out Summerfest

Milwaukee grunge/punk trio Dogs in Ecstasy is only a year and a half old but has quickly created a strong presence on the local music scene through plenty of shows and active social media accounts (mainly Twitter).

Despite a crowd that was a little sparse Sunday evening at Summerfest's New Music KNE Stage, the band played a high-energy show that featured most of the music it has released so far.

Songs like "Buzz," "My Brain is Killing Me" and "E-cig" all have pithy, clever lyrics that on this night were lost to a poor sound system. That muddy mix was the show's only downfall.

The band's stage presence was laid back with attention focused on their instruments rather than the crowd. That isn't to say that the show wasn't enjoyable; the band's rhythms are instantly engaging and addictive.

Despite the sound issue, Dogs in Ecstasy's musical skills can carry it wherever it goes. And anyway, sometimes you just need to hear a song called "My Brain is Killing Me."
