Tame Impala, the psychedelic rock band from Perth, Australia, played to a sold out Webster Hall last Saturday. The band was in town to support their second full-length, the critically-acclaimed Lonerism.
The crowd was particularly enthusiastic for the show. Between songs, guitarist Dominic Simper knelt down and playfully stuck his tongue out towards a bunch of girls at the security barricade who shrieked like he was a fucking Beatle. The crowd even applauded during Julien Barbagallo's drum solo. When Kevin Parker introduced the members of the band, there were more shrieks and screams. There was a lot of love coming from the audience.
I talked to Kevin Parker after the show and told him that, given their string of sold out New York shows, playing Radio City Music Hall was most likely in their future. His reply: "What's Radio City?" Aww, how cute. Well, you're about to find out, Kevin.
