Gotye Impresses On Stage and On Video
Have you ever seen a live performance that exceeded your expectations and sort of blew you away? That’s how I’d describe the Gotye concert I saw Saturday night at the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby, PA. This guy truly is a gifted musician. Not just perfect vocally (hitting some very challenging high notes!), but impressive instrumentally, as well. And I’m talking about MANY instruments. Some of which I don’t even know the names of! For more than 90 minutes Gotye moved around on stage, banging on one drum set, then moving to a synthesizer, then attacking another drum set, and so on, all the while, keeping the audience engrossed in his song stories. A giant video screen behind the band helped set the mood for each number. Gotye is defintely an artist we’ll be hearing and seeing more of. I’d encourage you to check him out, next time he comes to our area. This was one of the best concerts I’ve ever seen. Have you seen the video for the song we play on WOBM? Click on the image above to watch. If you’re short on time, I’d suggest you scroll ahead to 2:30. The final 90 seconds shows that intense interaction with Kimbra. Enjoy!
