MGMT / MGMT Laser shows at Carnegie Science Center
« on: May 12, 2015, 06:22:39 PM »
If you're in the Pittsburg area, you can check out the MGMT laser show at the Carnegie Science Center! 

This Grammy award-winning duo has played with world-class artists such as Radiohead, The Flaming Lips, Beck, and Paul McCartney. Now, Laser MGMT comes to the Buhl Planetarium dome in dazzling laser light. The show features a selection of songs from each of their albums and explores the depths of their imagery.

The shows are currently scheduled daily now through September 5

Perhaps you recognize the name Hank Sullivant. He's played guitar with MGMT (and was an early member of the Whigs, but as Kuroma he's found his groove working a bright and breezy psych-pop groove and whose debut album Kuromarama was produced by MGMT's Ben Goldwasser. The quartet currently on the road (kicking off tonight) in support of said record, playing on tours supporting Ex Hex, Tennis, Tame Impala—the latter of which is clearly a match made in heaven.

The original of "20+Centuries" is zingy, kaleidoscopic kind of power pop with a herd of stallions stampeding all over it. But Jay Watson of Tame Impala cut, chopped, sauteed and stir-fried the stems of the song to make it totally unrecognizable, kicking off with a beat that's the spit of Rihanna's "Umbrella," Watson's rework is Ratatat on amphetamines, whirling on  awarp speed merry-go-round. Jump aboard.

This is just plain fun  :D

"A delicate tale of remorse, ‘Cause I’m A Man is one of Kevin Parker’s more directly confessional lyrics yet. Dressed up in a languid, ethereal groove of deft percussion, lilting bass and decadently dewy pads, with perhaps the most grandiose refrain Tame Impala has yet to commit to tape."

I don't think I can afford it at the moment. Fuck. I've been trying.
Maybe I'll just go on Sunday if possible. But I'd love to see any of you throughout the weekend.

It came on while I was driving in the convertible with the top down. I think that the naysayers just don't get Muse.

And I simply don't get how the naysayers exist!!!  I'm glad they're returning to their rock roots.  The electronic stuff was not my favorite.

They did it and they did it well.  Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.  Can't wait!!!

This makes me so happy!

The fact that we're seeing them together again!!!

The last time we saw them was a historic day in life

It so was. I see they're playing there again :)

There is an HQ recording of Guggenheim but I don't think that it will be released because the deal was that it was a one time only (well two times) that were unique to the installation. I know that there are conflicting feels about that though. I'm not sure if both nights were recorded or not. I was there both nights and there was exquisite improvisation.

Okay so i swear there is more to the art then we can see. Anyone have any ideas? If you have the vinyl the back has a weird textrue and a shadow pic of them. Also the sleeve has like little computer chip looking things for each track . And are their shirts digital? What does it all mean????

it's on the back of the CD case too, their shadow silhouettes.

The whole "staticy-computer-virus" theme throughout the booklet I think is just a reflection of the sounds of this album:
how the songs all sound very fuzzy, claustrophobic, overwhelming, and digital (if that makes sense).

As for their shirts, they're actually photoshopped (I thought they were real at first).
I remember someone posted the original photo a little while after the album came out and Ben's shirt
is actually plain white while Andrew's was white with some blue words on it (if anyone could post it that'd be cool.)

On a side note, does anyone remember shortly after the album was released that there was a listing for a "Stylz Unlimited T-shirt" on the merch site but when you clicked on it, it would say some like "available soon" and had no image? It ended up getting removed after a few months I believe. I always thought that was going to be fuzzy-datamosh shirt like the ones Ben and Andrew wore on the cover and was super disappointed when the listing disappeared with no explanation.

I think the bird cage is important. There was that photo of them inside of a thing that looked like a bird cage from Congratulations, but now they're outside the cage...

Yep. That was my first thought when I saw it. I thought of the Gazebo and the quote, "What is a Gazebo if not a birdcage for humans?"  I think that was Ben on World Cafe. It's not a direct quote and I'm on a lot of meds these days. It's all foggy.
