Team Awesome! knows what fun is all about. Like grownups attempting to recapture their youthful exuberance, the Awesome! ones approach their celebratory indie pop like an adolescent-minded PBS program. The group's jaunty, lighthearted songs are all about love, crushes, rocket ships, dogs, board games, robots -- the sorts of things that make up being a kid. On stage, the bandmembers (due at the Larimer Lounge this Saturday, February 3) encourage a sense of childlike innocence and playfulness in the audience by embodying those traits themselves. Urging listeners to dance and sing along, the Team mates -- part of the same lineage that begat the Beat Happening, the Maybellines, Bad Weather California and Transistor Radio Sound -- even provide their own charmingly decorated cue cards. Feeling a little world-weary lately? Look no further than Team Awesome! to lift your spirits.
