Double Door – Chicago, IL
OK GO came home to Chicago and rocked out! OK NO, they performed Thursday night in Chicago at the Double Door. It was a pretty good show, not my favorite but just pretty ok. OK GO known by most for their hit song “Here it Goes Again”, accompanied by the extremely entertaining treadmill video.
The band is composed of Damian Kulash (lead vocals and guitar), Tim Nordwind (bass guitar and backing vocals), Dan Konopka (drums and percussion) and Andy Ross (keyboards, guitar and backing vocals), who joined them in 2005 in replacement of Andy Duncan.
The original members formed as OK Go in 1998 and released two studio albums before Duncan’s departure. The band is notable for their unusual fashion sense and their energetic music videos.
The show was petty packed, and the audience seemed to really enjoy the show. My favorite part was the cool bell song they did (What To Do). Check it out here!
And I loved the encore which consisted of 3 songs from their latest album. The songs were Skyscraper, Good Idea, and Invisible. But one thing I did not understand is why they felt the need to blow confetti like 4 times?? That made no sense to me, and it actually even started to get old by the end of the show. They also seemed kind of tired or something the whole time.
I give the show two stars. It just wasn’t very memorable.
