TV On the Radio @ 9:30 Club - Monday, June 8, 2009 - ~$31
Let's have a look at Golden Age from TVOTR, last night's headliners at the 9:30 Club.
Personally, I think this song is reminiscent of Michael Jackson's Wanna Be Startin' Something. There was a moment last night when I thought TVOTR sounded a bit like Us-era Peter Gabriel too.
What makes a crowd go so nuts for the Doves, who performed to a sold-out 930 show Saturday night, as compared to a politely enthusiastic crowd for a sold-out TVOTR? I don't get it. TVOTR's music seems much more energizing (and danceable) than the Doves, yet the Doves' audience was vociferous and squeezed a second encore out of the English birdmen.
TVOTR return for a second show at the 930 Club tonight with opening act Dirty Projectors (stupid band name).
