Phantogram/Glitch Mob- LIVE REVIEW Part 2

PREVIOUSLY ON THE "Phantogram/Glitch Mob LIVE REVIEW"..... After a last minute venue change from the King Plow to the Masquerade, July 15, 2011, ended up as a highly memorable evening of musical intensity. I'm talking of course about the Phantogram/ Glitch Mob show in Atlanta, Georgia. With the original venue overbooked, this electronic extravaganza was banished to the belfry-esque nether-regions of the Masquerade's upstairs stage. However, almost a headlining act itself, the Masquerade refused to disappoint. The "anything goes" atmosphere may perturb those of Coldplay fandom, but the place sure knows how to deliver a main course of high caloric live musical deliciousness. The special was $4 for a 16 oz. Pabst Blue Ribbon. Anything else was out of the question.

As far as the Glitch Mob goes, I've written pretty extensively on the site about these guys so I shall be brief. It's safe to say the trio from Los Angeles, DJs Oooah, edIT, and Boreta, delivered in spades for the wall-to-wall audience of predominant GlitchHeads- an hour and a half of pulse-pounding, rhythmically mesmerizing electronica. Witnessing this show was like being trapped inside the hard drive of an XBox 360
that is possessed by the ghost of Michael Jackson. And that's a hell of a compliment.
