Late night show performances are a hit or miss. It’s the kind of thing you stay for if you like the act, but flip the channel to an old episode of Family Guy or Archer if the programming coordinator has their $hit together on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. But, last night – this Washington native blew the freakin roof off that studio! What might seem like an ordinary set if he was say “Skrillex” or some other dj was A LOT MORE impressive than meets the ear. HE WAS A ONE-MAN BAND
It’s one thing to play a bunch of instruments (14? psh, we’re not that impressed Beck). But, its a whole other thing to play them ALL within the breadth of a single performance with absolutely no assistance, and graciously grooving from one to another. This dude did the vocals (ON KEY – granted with effects). He had a drumset. NO, TWO drumsets! He had the keys! He had this steering wheel thing he turned that cried like a dolphin in ecstasy. He had this Wii Remote lookin do-hickey he waved in the air to reverb his restless voice! I mean, the guy was on FIRE! DIDN’T MISS A STEP! Not even when he showcased moves to put Jagger in his place. JUST WATCH AND TURNIP!
