OK Go is tricky. I was warned there would be tons and tons of confetti – I actually had over an inch of the stuff in my camera bag when all was said and done. But they also had a sheer curtain up in front of them for several songs, which was fun to watch – but hard to photograph. No matter, I am up for a challenge and I had a blast photographing and listening to OK Go in concert.
Everything was fun, as one would expect from that band that puts out those awesome videos. But everything was also musically great. I loved how rich Damian Kulash’s voice sounds live and his trip directly out into the crowd was highly appreciated. I mean, seriously. Denver sometimes has a reputation for tame crowds, but not when they are OK Go fans.
Not only did the band have killer graphics on all those screens surrounding them – they stopped for several Q&A sessions. Literally. “Who thinks up all your music videos?” God.
I love a band that can put on a great rock show and have a great time.
