In a strange twist of fate, it seems the early 2000’s have made a return in the realm of music and culture alike.
On Friday, Sept. 16 at 9p.m., Green Screen Kid made their opening bang here at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
What started off as a reminiscent night where local Milwaukee band Dreamhouse took to the stage to bring us covers of popular hits such as Katy Perry’s, “I Kissed a Girl” and My Chemical Romance’s “I’m Not Okay,” ended with three guys from Appleton, Wis. that were ready to perform you out of your seats.
“I’ve heard of Dreamhouse once in the past. It’s cool to see them in person,” said Devin Varga, a junior here on campus and a fan of local music. He attended the event with his friends.
After Dreamhouse played what they called an unusual one-hour set, they happily introduced local Appleton pop-punk trio: Green Screen Kid.
“Green Screen Kid looks to put on incredible live shows by incorporating green screen video technology and making a strong connection with their audience,” states their official Facebook page.
Their shows are a throw-back mixture of all those bands you heard so much in high school with a dash of boy-band that brings it all together. They wear green accessories like bowties or suspenders that also play a part in the use of the video technology that gives their shows a unique effect of lighting and sound.
“It’s not what I typically listen to, but they put on a good show tonight.” Cory Scott said, a University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh student who was visiting for the weekend.
The crowd wasn’t as big as it maybe should have been, but nonetheless, Green Screen Kid was appreciative of all who came to rock out.
