MGMT played a sold out show in Salt Lake last night at In The Venue. This was my first trip to this SLC venue, and it turns out its a pretty good spot to catch a show.
Stark The Vinyl Shark first spotted the MGMT tour busses parked outside The Hotel Monaco while out to lunch and a few hours later I was awaiting their performance while taking in their opening act.
MGMT's psychedelic rock show was a bit disjointed but found its way towards the end of the set. The set was split about 50/50 between their previous and new albums and their sound was pretty good, though I could have used some more volume.
Highlights include "Time To Pretend", "Weekend Wars", "Electric Feel", and the traditionally uninspired "Kids". A good time was had by all.
