ASTR front woman Zoe snapped the strap of her crop top one song into the electronic R&B duo’s set. “I’m dancing so hard!” she said. Zoe (both she and partner Adam use the last name “ASTR”), convulsed, shimmied and bounced across the stage. While Adam handled the launchpad and drum machine (the group uses no live instruments), Zoe commanded attention with her bold movements and versatile voice. Her honey-coated vocals resonated sweetly against throbbing bass on “Blue Hawaii;” her rap skills shined on a cover of Big K.R.I.T.’s “Just Last Week.” And during a hypnotic rendition of Drake’s “Hold on, We’re Going Home,” Zoe led the audience in an impromptu sing-along. Even when the heat caused their equipment to hiccup on set closer “Operate”, Zoe’s enthusiasm never waned. “The heat is killing us!” she joked. Then she danced harder. ★★★★✩
