They didn't stop there with the release of 2012's Lonerism, which lead the band to top polls across countless sources, such as Rolling Stone, NME and Triple J (to name a few). In the same year, the band also won their second "Album of the Year" ARIA award.
Frontman Kevin Parker (vocals, guitar) was joined on stage by Jay Watson (keys, guitar, backing vocals), Dominic Simper (guitar, synth), Nick Adams (bass) and Julien Barbagallo (drums). Taking the stage around 9:15 they kicked it off with a "Desire Be Desire Go" jam. I especially enjoy bands who switch it up during their live performance, so it was a nice surprise to see drummer Jay Watson on keys, who also played guitar on "Half Full Glass of Wine" and was banging his head throughout the majority of the set.
Without the aid of excessive stage props, Tame Impala showed up with a projector screen, the perfect compliment to their unique psychedelic rock sound. "Elephant" brought a heavy psych rock element to the table, while "Endors Toi" and "Why Won't You Make Up Your Mind" (a personal favorite) showcased the bands spaced out dream pop sound. If everyone in attendance wasn't already uncontrollably dancing, "Music To Walk Home By," made sure of it. With the distinct heavy bass intro, "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" was an immediate crowd pleaser (for good reason).
Other than a few "thank yous" and "it's nice to be here" the humble band didn't say much, but they didn't need to. To say the least, from the set to the sound the overall show was astounding and I wouldn't be surprised if they continued to sell out more shows in larger venues. With that being said, GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!
