SO, went to see these guys the other night at the Echoplex. It was gnar gnar packed. Sold out, everyone had to stand in the rain to get in. MGMT actually started the set with CCR's "Who'll Stop the Rain", that was funny. MGMT are now the headliner of that tour, their single is on KROQ and shit. Yeasayer opened. I am a big fan of theirs. They made my Top 20 of 2007(check other post). They kicked ass, the main singer threw a maraca out in the crowd and it hit some chick in the head. Some dude was talking shit to them because of it and there was also equipment issues. It was an awkward show but they were damn good and talented as all hell. Although, their band chemistry was weird, I am not sure if they will keep that same arrangement or even make it through the tour. Nonetheless, good damn show for a rain soaked crowd. Here are some shit pix I took and a video.
