After watching the high-energy dancing of Annie Truscott, who plays bass for Chastity Belt, I started taking note of every bass player's individual dancing style, which is often best described as a prance. Luke from Pony Time keeps time with a steady side-to-side prance while he plays bass and sings; La Luz has mellow beach party dance moves; the bassist for Pickwick has one of the most flexible necks that I've ever seen so constantly in motion; Andrew from the Trashies puts his entire six-plus feet tall body into his abrasive prance/shredding; and the bassist for the Flaming Lips just half pranced, while he straight-up sat down in a chair for their whole set.
