yep, same as Coachella it sounds like. I've been told that the bad dancing is part of "the point"
I thought it was fun, but if I'd paid for it outside of "oh cool, part of coachella is this weird Knife thing," I'd be dumbfounded too. Based on what I saw, at least they have a strong visual aethetic (no video stuff, sets and some instruments look homemade, matching bodysuits, way too much fog machine) but it comes off weird (homemade instruments, bodysuits, bad dancing to prerecorded music, way too much fog machine)
oh yeah, i like weird. i just think that if a musical act is going to put on a performance without, you know, live music, they need to have a really good rationale and do something really good instead. and i didn't think either of those latter conditions were satisfied. the visual aesthetic was like how someone in 1970 would imagine a gay club in the year 2000. which sounds cool. but after the novelty wore off (about five minutes), i just felt like i was in a tedious dream.
yeah, i will say that karin's stage presence was veeeerry strong.
