A year ago tonight was night one of an epic front-row-no-barrier double header.  I may or may not have almost gotten arrested.

A mishmash of the past few nights.

Personal Fest, Argentina

Those are from  rollingstone.com.ar



















I apologize for not quoting the source on a lot of these.  I pulled a lot of them off of the tumblr mgmt tag and many weren't quoted but mostly, honestly, I'm tired and don't feel great.  I fell a sleep a couple of times in the process of assembling the post.  Anyway, they are all clearly professional shooters as typically, this thread is.

Three years removed.  It seems like a lifetime ago.  It feels like yesterday.  We were so lucky.  So damn lucky to have been there.  One of the most special experiences of my life.

I just heard Lucy for the first time yesterday.  I thought it was brilliant but here's what I was wondering...was it a brilliant remake or was it a remake of a brilliant song?  Sometimes I forget just how incredible The Beatles were.  This is going to be the most old fogey thing I've ever written ("old fogey" is the second most):  I'm just so sad about the music "kids today" are listening to.  It's utter rubbish on the radio.  I think that one of the absolute greatest things that I did as a parent is expose my kids to good music.  I gave them the foundation and they did the rest.  I remember hearing The Beatles blaring from my son's room one night.  He had "found" them on his own.  Now I'm not implying that there isn't great music being made now-we're Here , aren't we?  It's the manufactured, over produced, prefab, formulated shit that's on the radio that makes me sad.  Yes, there is some art out there, but most of it is formulated, money making garbage.  It's so distressing because music is so important.  For most, it's the first form of art and beauty that reaches out and touches us.  It makes us feel.  Music needs to be experienced.  Kids need to be awakened and their souls need to be touched by art. 

Sorry...I really did mosey in here just to say I liked a song.
i totally agree with your message but don't you think that this album was a little over cooked? i love worm mountain but this is just crazy over drive, fuzz, noise,  and featuring some "artists" that fit perfectly with "formulated, money making garbage"
I have only listened to Lucy, and my comments were actually inspired by The Beatles not the Lios. That being said, I do like a lot of the Lips stuff, however, I wasn't really fond of the last album. I just started blabbering about my reaction to Lucy. I'm not sure what produced my warm reception of that song. I only listened to it once.

Okay, so here's a fun story.  Several days ago, Bubble posted in a thread that we have and asked, "Quick!!  My friend is trying to win a contest and she needs to know who MGMT were asked to collaborate with and didn't do it?!?!"  I said, "Jay Z."  So I had forgotten all about it and and then I ran across these pics (more in the Peru thread) and posted them. I don't think that I've ever actually posted fan pics before, but I just thought that these were so adorable.  Well, I'm sure you've guessed by now that Bubble's friend won the contest with that answer and this is her!  So how funny is it that I gave her the answer and then I was struck by her picture and posted my first fan photos?  It's a funny little mgmt world, isn't it?  Congratulations Lovely!  I hope that you had a wonderful experience  :-*

"It's a funny little mgmt world, isn't it?" THIS!!!!!  :)

I helped her with a few other questions and it was fun!! Questions like "when Andrew was a kid, what did he want to be when he grew up? Or when did he start surfing? lol those were easy.

She had the time of her life. She also met Matt and Will. She realized Will is prettier than the rest of the boys. Duh. <3
Well she's just a doll!  I'm so happy that she had you to rely on and that she had such a great time.  :-*

MGMT visits Lima beach with Peru surf champ

Members of MGMT, the U.S. dance-rock duo, know how to select a tour guide.

Band vocalist Andrew VanWyngarden and guitarist James Richardson, whom were in Peru’s capital city to perform Tuesday at Parque de la Exposición, spent a day with Sofia Mulanovich, famed Peruvian surfer and a world champion of the sport.

On Monday, upon her Instagram account, Mulanovich posted a photo of her newfound friends and herself with the caption: “Great day with the boys of MGMT. Good waves, ceviche and a spectacular sunset”.

And really, who could ask for more?

This was the band’s first time in Peru. They were joined onstage Tuesday night by The Drums as well as Delta Venus, an Argentinian band who opened the concert.

Readers, did you go to the November 4 MGMT concert? What did you think?
