Cobra Starship's "Too Fast for Love" tour rolled into New York City Wednesday night for a sold-out show at the Roseland Ballroom -- the dance-pop group's biggest hometown concert yet. And they came prepared for the occasion.
With help from 3OH!3 (singer Sean Foreman pictured above), Travie McCoy, and I Fight Dragons, Cobra rocked a wild party that had 3,500 fans dancing for hours.
SPIN photographer Jackie Roman was front-and-center at the show, capturing all the mayhem. "It was totally over the top," she says. "The stage and light show was outrageous -- there was a giant boom box as a drum riser and taxidermy wolves shooting green lasers from their eyes!"
Cobra Starship kept feet shuffling with jams like "Hot Mess" and "Good Girls Go Bad," while 3OH!3 busted out "House Party" and "My First Kiss." Travie McCoy, the Gym Class Heroes frontman promoting his debut solo album Lazarus, performed his single "Billionaire."
"The fans -- especially the hormonal teenage girls -- were flipping out," says Roman.
