Concert Reviews

MGMT at Fillmore Auditorium, 9/6/13

MGMT @ FILLMORE AUDITORIUM | 9/6/13 There were two distinct, dramatically different moods to MGMT's set at the Fillmore, and let's just say that those who came to hear MGMT's breakthrough hits -- bright and peppy synthpop tunes like "Electric Feel," "Kids" and "Time to Pretend" -- were not disappointed, and neither were those who appreciate the more experimental side of the band. Those older songs were interspersed amid newer material -- long stretches of fuzz-infused guitar jams and musical experiments -- forming a psychedelic soundtrack that came along with hallucinatory animations beamed on a screen at the back of the stage.
