Sounds at Soma — Wish You Were Here

The small, enthusiastic crowd of mostly twentysomethings was treated to a night of indie-rock music at Soma by San Francisco–based duo the Limousines, L.A.-based Funeral Party, and headliners the Sounds, featuring Swedish front woman Maja Ivarsson on vocals. Between sets the crowd was kept moving by the bass-heavy Oklahoma City deejays Kids at the Bar.

The Sounds had the crowd dancing with songs such as "Running Out of Turbo," "Yeah Yeah Yeah," and "The No No Song" from their latest disc, Something To Die For.

About halfway through the set, Ivarsson stood alone onstage and sang the crowd a pleasing rendition of "Wish You Were Here." The Zippo lighter apps were waving as the crowd sang along. This was my first experience at the all-ages (read young) venue, and it was not bad at all. The security staff was friendly, the music was good, and the crowd was well behaved and there to have a good time and listen to a few good bands.
