The OK GO Experience
Unfortunately, my words and pics won’t do OK GO justice, and a super long video might give too much away. So, just believe me when I say, ya need to see these guys perform. The set lasted a good 90 minutes, and the foursome played all 4 songs from their new EP Upside Out and many oldies. I left 9:30 thinkin’ I didn’t just go to another concert. That was special. That was a celebration. That, right there, was an experience.
White Screen. Cool Camera Angles. A video. Confetti. Cool projections. Music. More confetti. Dancing. Q and A session. An intimate performance. Banter and more jokes. Music. And of course, confettiiiiiii. Everything timed to perfection.
Needless to say, the band kept the crowd on their toes; eyeballs wide with stunning visuals; ears open to the rockin’ guitar solos. One of the coolest parts of the set? Their opening, which literally screamed OK GO. The band spliced together pop culture clips (movies/shows/etc) of celebrities and characters saying the words “OK” and “GO.” And ya know a show is legit when Kermit the Frog, in a stylish tux, ends the video by opening stage curtains and saying ” And now, ladies and gentelman, OK GO!”
Q and A:
Audience: What’s your confetti budget?
OK GO: 4 billion dollars.
One thing’s for sure. These dudes go all out.
Tuesday night, you were oh-so…
