not going to lie, when I heard about this last night I looked up how long it would take/how expensive it would be for me to take a bus to new york from toronto. Alas, I am poor and have classes to attend :( Would be amazing though so I'm happy for those of you that can make it!

For those wondering about the set, this won't be the show to attend if you are wanting to hear album tracks.  This WILL be the show to attend if you want to see a one of a kind performance by the band with unique material that will not be heard again elsewhere...

I love everything about this (except for the fact that Will didn't speak. :-\  And I don't think James shook Matt's hand at the end :D)

I wonder if the exclusion of album tracks means there's no possibility of them playing All We Ever Wanted Was Everything.

Aww, no of course not! <3
Am happy/excited for all of you, lucky bitches. :-*
 - some fans get to see them more often than others though, and it's not as simple for her so I was kinda extra-rooting for things to work out for her.

Sorry if it came out like I didnt care about the CKs.

I'm not familiar with her story...but I'm happy that things worked out for her :)..it should be a great show!

That's a bummer that they aren't responding. Do you think that even if they won't allow the audience cameras that they'll at least allow press photography? I mean this is a special performance and I'm sure many mags, newspapers, and websites would want to capture this event for their readers. Maybe you can pose as press and say you're publication is a highly respected internet forum  ;D

We know that, and appreciate the thought  :)


Edit: Maybe there will be some exclusive material related to the gig included in our Funzone packages, which would explain why the shipment date was pushed back to at least the end of this month. Probably wishful thinking though, I'm sure I'm thinking about this way too much. This drought period is no fun, it makes my mind wander off and ponder of all the different avenues they can take once finally do give us something new  ::)

I just don't want to get there and then have to take it back to my friend's place.  I just got out for about an hour and ran some errands and my back is absolutely killing me.  I need to be off my feet right up until I go to the Museum.

The bad news:  (and I find this unfathomable) No Coat check.  I'm just going to wear an old coat, turn it inside out and dump it somewhere.  Whatever happens, happens.

The Wonderful News:  CAMERAS ARE ALLOWED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EDIT:  OMG!!!  Coat check on Thursday.  600 people.  Free cocktails and deserts.  THE BOYS ARE PLAYING FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  "you are in for quite the experience"

1200  people on Friday.

I have so much for you...it was one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever created.  It blew my mind and I just felt so incredibly blessed to be there but at the same time, sad that this won't be there for everyone to hear.  I have a lot of media but I'm exhausted and my back is so damaged from my procedure last week, I'm in agony.  More later, I promise.  I need to try to sleep.  You were all there with me.

Oh, thank you very very much ... I'm proud and surprise to listen to this wonderful music, They are going farther and exceeding expectations.

I just find this, there are many pictures from them and from the audience.

Oh wow ... Looked and sounded like a mind blowing experience! Would have loved to be there.

I also have to mention Andrews excitable legs in the second video  ;D Reminded me of a child sitting on a chair excited about something mixed with a puppet.

I found soem great photos here: http://bfanyc.com/home/event/2402
There's a great one with the whole band.

Beautiful.

So is this new material like new album stuff? or is this just strictly stuff for these shows?  I think it all sounds FUCKING AMAZING.  Even if it is for the latter, the direction they are going is unreal.

I am in love with all of this and all of your images are absolutely lovely Lala. I'm on Pitchfork watching the video and I swear the back of your head is in one of the video's, I'm so sorry if I'm being a creep just thought you may like to know :P

It was written specifically for this installation.  It was really cool-you could see them really concentrating.  They switched up the instruments.  It just showcased how unbelievably talented they all are.

Ohhh, link Mell?

:( :( :( :( :( :(
just my luck
you don't know how fucking angry I am right now.
I ran late (how I predicted), but, even so... with the train I took I would have made it just in time for their performance. RIGHT as we are getting out of the tunnel into Penn Station (/the city) the train just stops in the tunnel. Then, it starts backing up slowly. Stops. Backs up. Stops. Backs up. Backed all the way up in that trend OUT OF THE TUNNEL THE OPPOSITE WAY. I started tearing and wanted to cry so bad, but, I would have been embarrassed doing that in public. The train, then, finally starts going to Penn again and lets off at 10:32 (I took an 8:46 train... arrive time is like 45 min). Like... are you kidding me? I would have to also take two subways to get to Guggenheim & I have never been there before so I also wasn't sure where I was going (So I would have been so much more later and probably miss most of their set.) I was so angry, I just gave up and hopped back on the train home. I let my tears out then LOL JUST FUCKING GOD DAMN IT >:[
I'm so upset/angry. This was a one time chance! I was soooo excited :( I haven't shut up about it for days! :( PLUS, I'm always broke so I spent that ticket money and then this train ticket for nothing. Also feel bad because that ticket could have gone to someone else :(
UGH

I'm sorry. I just got home and had to vent out a little before I start actually crying like a baby.

I really do hope that whoever went today had a wonderful time! Such a brilliant thing! Still would love to hear everyone's experiences! This whole event just seems surreal.

They wouldn't tell us what happened until we finally got to Penn. A train in front of us had broken down and... idk what our train was doing but yeah lol.
 :-\

Thank you guys, though  :-*
Ahh well. At least I got a cute outfit in my closet, now. ha! I'm just going to pretend like last night didn't happen, but, I really do want to hear every single detail from people about yesterday. Need to have the best visuals and sounds in my head so I can pretend like I was there, instead. Haha

Gulsah, I'm actually all teary reading your post.  I'm so, so sorry that this happened to you.

Last night was amazing and I'm still on a high.  The music was even better tonight and of course with it being familiar, I enjoyed it that much more.  I watched from the 4th floor (thanks Dan) with Sana, Melanie, Danielle, my friend and my friend Sarah, oh and I guess one of the Strokes.  I have to say, that the Guggenheim people for the most part, were kind of dicks.  We didn't let that hinder us.  I promised my girls that they would meet MGMT and many of you know first hand that that's a promise that lala always keeps.  One of the most fun things ever is being with someone when they meet them for the first time.  I love it.  Let's just say that this old lady closed down an establishment in Times Square on a Friday night.  Not bad.

Oh hai Mark.  ;)

I knew something bad was going to happen anyway. Negative energy just draws more negativity... I should have had a positive outlook from the start... maybe I would have caught an earlier train or something  :-\ I really was looking forward to meeting you, Lala   :-\

ANYWAY, getting passed the bad...
Ahh, sounds fantastic! I saw the photo of you & James, (obv I commented on it haha) I looooooove that photo so much! Sad to hear when staff is bad, but, at least you guys found a way to ignore it! I hope more videos start popping up!

They recorded the performance last night, but there aren't plans yet as to what will happen with it.  Man I'd love to have that on my ipod!  The performance of course, was very visual by intention-it was performance art and the lights were incredible.  It was music that you could feel.  But I promise, the music can stand alone!

I really think I might die if they don't officially release these performances somewhere. I'd love a studio version of the music, but I'd settle for official footage of the whole live performance. Dear GOD, this needs to happen.

Thursday and Friday were, undeniably, the best two nights of my life. Met some incredible people, had the time of my life and saw my favorite band perform the most amazing piece of music. Everything about the environment was perfect; the art and the lights and the intimacy on Thursday. So perfect.

Lala, I'm so happy we had the opportunity to hang out again, and I just love everyone that I met. I really think I made some life-long friends, and I'm elated.

I'm trying not to get too emotional as I watch videos on YouTube, but it's hard!

I'm happy that I had two great days of power shopping and fine dining in the City following the shows.  Now that I'm home and quietly editing photos, it's all sinking in.  Honestly, I have the same feeling that I had during the performances....just really blessed.  It kills me how many douches were there clamoring for Kids and Electric Feel when I know people who would have given anything to be there.  I'm just super grateful that I was able to attend.  I loved the exhibit as well-it was just a perfect all around experience, douchebags and all.  It's always fun to meet knew MGMT fans and especially to be present when fans get to meet them for the first time.  A tumblr friend was just telling me a moment ago that she was ready to leave when I stopped her and told her to stay with me.  She just wanted to give Ben a pair of socks that she had bought for him.  The boys were lovely and generous and took time to greet each fan who had waited to meet them.  I've had a lovely 4 days.  I know I've set myself back with my back injury, but time (and hopefully not surgery) will get me through it.  I was worth every wince of pain  ;)

Goodness....I have so many more photos but I don't want to be a post whore.  I do want to mention that a few of us made the decision to have a very different experience on Friday night.  We wanted to have the full experience of the music, light, space and art interacting as a whole.  Dan recommended a spot on the 4th floor to the right of the stage and it was perfect.  It was cool to have a bird's eye view of the musical performance, but more than that, we really got to feel like we were experiencing it as it was intended.  V. cool.

I love you, too. I'm so happy we met. I think, for the first time in my life, I really felt like I belonged with the people around me. I never thought I'd experience something as magical as this weekend, but it happened, and it was life-changing.

And, please, Lala, post as many as you desire. I am having such a blast, looking at them on Tumblr.

Emma pretty much stole the words right out of my mouth. This was such a special and unique experience and Im so glad and thankful that those of you who were able to attend were able to convey that feeling to those of us who weren't there. It truly felt like we were all there in spirit. It does sadden me that there were douchebags who couldn't take in how special this performance truly was, but there's always going to be some douche who will try to ruin it for everyone. Thank you for posting the videos, photos, and stories of your experiences!  :-*

These last two posts just sum up the MGMT Community.  I know I always say this, but I was thinking of you guys and wishing you were there.  We all live vicariously through one another and are happy for each other attending events.  Like anything else, an MGMT event is always better when you can share it with people you care about.  It was great fun to have all of these awesome people wandering around this amazing, iconic building two nights in a row.  A truly special experience.  It's great how this whole on line community-the forum, tumblr, twitter, etc. is connected by MGMT's music, but we actually connect on so many levels...we transcend decades of age, countries and cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, race, sex and political affiliation.  Wouldn't it be great if the whole world was like this?

MGMT @ Guggenheim - live audio recording

Hi everybody,
My name is Michael, and I'm new to the MGMT forum. I was at the Friday 11/11 show which I thought was fantastic! I had no problem finding video footage from the show, but it took some digging around before I found an audio recording. I'm still hoping to find a recording of the entire show, but I was at least able to find a 15 minute segment of it in MP3 format. Sound quality is pretty good, and I thought some of you might want to download it for your listening enjoyment. Although I'm unable to say which night the recording is from, it's definitely the same music that I heard during Friday night's performance. I just thought I'd share it on here in case any of you are in search of the same thing.

http://www.mediafire.com/?zbebp69l5ykpnx1#

I'll admit that it's kind of a drag to hear it cut out after 15 minutes, but I'm still grateful to at least have 1/3 of the show. By the way, if anyone happens to know where I could find a recording of the entire show, I would be more than grateful if you could direct me to it! ;D Thanks everybody!

Although I'm unable to say which night the recording is from, it's definitely the same music that I heard during Friday night's performance. I just thought I'd share it on here in case any of you are in search of the same thing.

I'll admit that it's kind of a drag to hear it cut out after 15 minutes, but I'm still grateful to at least have 1/3 of the show. By the way, if anyone happens to know where I could find a recording of the entire show, I would be more than grateful if you could direct me to it! ;D Thanks everybody!


Wow, thanks!

THEY SOUND FLAWLESS OH MAI GAH

MGMT @ Guggenheim - live audio recording

Hi everybody,
My name is Michael, and I'm new to the MGMT forum. I was at the Friday 11/11 show which I thought was fantastic! I had no problem finding video footage from the show, but it took some digging around before I found an audio recording. I'm still hoping to find a recording of the entire show, but I was at least able to find a 15 minute segment of it in MP3 format. Sound quality is pretty good, and I thought some of you might want to download it for your listening enjoyment. Although I'm unable to say which night the recording is from, it's definitely the same music that I heard during Friday night's performance. I just thought I'd share it on here in case any of you are in search of the same thing.

Hey Michael, and welcome.  That's actually my mp3 I uploaded to mediafire.  It's from my video of Thursday's performance, not Friday.  I ended up getting about 18 minutes of it on video but youtube only let me upload a 15 minute video, hence the 15 minute mp3.  I have several videos but they aren't complete songs since I wanted to enjoy what I was witnessing.  I think we have to wait for a potential release in whatever form that may take on before we can get an mp3 of the performance in it's entirety.

Hey cool! That was yours? Thanks a million! Believe me, I'm so grateful to that I'm able to listen to their show. Excellent recording! It's awesome that you got so much of it, and it sure is kind of you to be sharing it with other fans. Naturally, you had to enjoy what you were witnessing. I actually feel like I was being selfish after I viewed all the content other fans uploaded, because I did nothing at the Friday show that would enable me to give back to the MGMT community. I guess we're all hoping the entire shows become available, but whether it happens or not, I feel very lucky to just to have been at the show. I listened to your recording at 4-5 times today, so thank you kindly for sharing it!

Also, thanks to you and everyone else for welcoming the newbie ;D  I'm getting such a great vibe on this forum! :)

That it was mine.  I am happy to share it, especially with people here, like you, and where I know it's much appreciated.  I don't think you should feel selfish.  I'm sure some day you will have something to share with us, and in the meantime you can just soak up what's put out there for you.  It's a healthy give and take. 

With that being said, I worked on something last night. I gathered what I could find from the Guggenheim shows in terms of the different songs and made a zip file of 6 tracks.  I have to warn you though, there is some overlap of the tracks especially with the  15 minute song I recorded that's included in here.  They are not in order and the track numbers have no meaning.  The zip is about 35 minutes of the 50 minute performance. 
 
http://www.mediafire.com/?s5b5m5ir30r5bar 

I am absolutely crushed that I can't find the full song of what I labeled Track 6.  It was my absolute favorite so I never wanted to be distracted by recording it but now I really wish I had it so if anyone ever finds it (even on youtube) please let me know.  Thanks!

The one week mark after a special show is always hard for me-it's almost like since it's one week removed, something is taken away from me...in a sense, it almost makes it somewhat less valid.  We weren't even there yet, a week ago.  I was getting ready and Ailsa was helping with my outfit.  Danielle came at 8:30 and then we went and fetched Sana and Melanie.  We got there and met up with everyone else and when we went in, chatted with Dan and there was Matt.  The whole evening had this sense of something that you need to hold on to, tightly.  With age comes wisdom, and I felt it important to impart to my young friends, "Be in the moment-hold on to this-it's a very special night."  I was feeling all of this an hour before MGMT took the carpeted stage.  We enjoyed some drinks, and being photographed and watching the glitterati.  We also just enjoyed and appreciated the space, the art and the fact the we were all brought together by love.  We didn't really proceed to the stage until 10:30, so we were spread apart, but we were connected.  As this brilliant, body-invading music swelled into our souls, we just looked at one another and smiled, and knew that we were the luckiest people on the planet at this particular moment in time.  It reminds me of the feeling during the Kentucky Derby, when they play My Old Kentucky Home.  You are the center of the universe.  And for about 47 minutes, we were.  And I thought of all of you, and you were with me.



EDIT:  I was listening to the 15:01 clip and it ended at the exact second that I hit Post.

I wasn't satisfied with my own attempt at partial songs in incorrect order of the Guggenheim performance so I worked on it for days and finally got the performance in it's entirety, in the correct order.

It was 11/10 and 11/11.  They taped it, but they don't know yet what, if anything they'll do with it.  You know what perfectionists they are.  Hopefully they're happy with the quality.  I wish everyone could have been there.

Gulsah, I read about everything that happened to you and I am very sorry you never made the show.  Thank you for sharing your videos of Andrew when you saw him at City Winery with us though, that was really nice of you.

I'm just chatting with Mickey about our memories and I thought I'd share my thoughts with you guys.

When I listen to it, I just think of how incredibly lucky we are. I listened to it on the beach a couple of weeks ago but I was transported to the 4th floor of the rotunda in my mind :)

 I don't think I ever have, or ever will experience a piece of music that can transport me back to when I heard it, like the Guggenheim music. It truly was site specific and while others can appreciate the beauty of the music itself, they'll never truly experience what we did on those two nights. The music became the rotunda and the rotunda became the music. I remember listening on the second night, and feeling it even more deeply than the night before because it wasn't new-I was able to just revel in it and watch the lights.

I remember listening on the second night, and feeling it even more deeply than the night before because it wasn't new-I was able to just revel in it and watch the lights.

There were times I just couldn’t get myself to listen to it, because it made me too emotional.  Its beauty was too overpowering, and I would actually feel myself experiencing a breakdown.  I’ve never had that reaction to any kind of music before.  I’m glad, however, that I can listen to it, now, without completely falling apart.  I’m still an emotional wreck whenever I listen, but I’m far more controlled.  I don’t ever want to listen to the composition and not feel how powerful it is, which is why I’ve been very careful not to overexpose myself to it.  It’s too magical and too sentimental to just listen to every day; there has to be a time and a place, and I love that you listened to it at the beach.  What a beautiful setting.  Ethereal and peaceful.

Oh, Guggenheim... Nothing will ever compare to those nights. The lights, the rotunda, the exhibit, the intense echo of their music—wow, the memories still take me away.

I have only listened to it a handful of times.  I always listen to SB as soon as I get to the beach, followed by Future Reflections and OMBM.  This time I listened to Guggenheim first and it was very strange-I seriously didn't feel like I was at the beach.  I have said before that I was overcome on that Thursday night by how unbelievably blessed we were to be there....I still feel very overwhelmed by that same feeling when I listen now.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could take vacations to relive parts of our lives?  I think that the next time I go to the beach I'll listen to it at sunset-that music definitely has the colors of the sunset.

I'm listening right now...I almost had to turn it off because it made me too sad, but I stuck it out.  I'm looking at my pics.  I swear those two nights are now a part of my soul.  I'm so grateful that I was able to be so completely immersed in the moment and realize how incredibly blessed we were to be a part of it.  As time pulls away from those two nights, I appreciate them more and more.  Miss you ladies.

I could imagine lala... your so lucky that you had an experience like that. i think its something about hearing your favourite band's new music for the first time that is so breath taking, and hearing it live would have been over the top. then hearing music that you know they'll never play again... that right there is heaven. i could imagine your euphoria. i had a nap that evening and i had a dream a of wierd club with a band playing. when i looked at photos later i was shocked to find it was very smilar to the unique setting of the guggenheim. it was wierd. so i kinda felt like i was there too but not nearly! GOSH i hope they release the video of that night with all of my little heart!

I've spent a lovely last couple of days reminiscing with my wonderful Guggenheim crew.  My most prominent memory is that I felt so overwhelming lucky to be there and I felt like I was representing (along with the other lucky people who were there) all of you lovely super fans.

The one week mark after a special show is always hard for me-it's almost like since it's one week removed, something is taken away from me...in a sense, it almost makes it somewhat less valid.  We weren't even there yet, a week ago.  I was getting ready and Ailsa was helping with my outfit.  Danielle came at 8:30 and then we went and fetched Sana and Melanie.  We got there and met up with everyone else and when we went in, chatted with Dan and there was Matt.  The whole evening had this sense of something that you need to hold on to, tightly.  With age comes wisdom, and I felt it important to impart to my young friends, "Be in the moment-hold on to this-it's a very special night."  I was feeling all of this an hour before MGMT took the carpeted stage.  We enjoyed some drinks, and being photographed and watching the glitterati.  We also just enjoyed and appreciated the space, the art and the fact the we were all brought together by love.  We didn't really proceed to the stage until 10:30, so we were spread apart, but we were connected.  As this brilliant, body-invading music swelled into our souls, we just looked at one another and smiled, and knew that we were the luckiest people on the planet at this particular moment in time.  It reminds me of the feeling during the Kentucky Derby, when they play My Old Kentucky Home.  You are the center of the universe.  And for about 47 minutes, we were.  And I thought of all of you, and you were with me.



EDIT:  I was listening to the 15:01 clip and it ended at the exact second that I hit Post.

I just reread this whole thread.  More than two years later, I still feel blessed to have been there-I actually think I probably appreciate it even more now.  I'm still in touch with the Guggenheim crew and even spent the weekend with two of them last month, having them at my house and attending two shows.  Bonded for life by MGMT super glue, lol.

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.

When I think of all of the shows I've attended (it's in the twenties), although I don't count these two nights as shows, but I just remember feeling so blessed to be experiencing it. The two nights were different experiences and both were perfect. Memories are so precious.

There is a recording, however I'm not sure that they would share it as it was billed as a one time event.  The music is exquisite (I listen to it on the beach when I'm there <3) but it was only a part of the experience.  It stands alone to an extent, but the lights and of course the art installation where such a big part of it.  The DVD could only show so much of the experience :(
