MGMT, the electric indie rock group famous for their songs “Kids” and “Electric Feel,” will make its first appearance in the 49th state on May 29. The concert is part of Broken Tooth Brewing’s First Tap Concert Series, where monthly featured beers are unveiled. This makes the MGMT concert a 21-and-over event only.
MGMT has been in the music scene since 2002, and all three of their albums — “Oracular Spectacular,” “Congratulations” and “MGMT” — have made the Billboard Top 200 at No. 38, 2 and 14 respectively. MGMT’s name is the abbreviation for “management,” which the band chose after changing their name from “The Management” because of another band using the same name. Their music is mixup of techno, electronic and indie rock sounds.
“I really like them when I’m doing homework or dancing. Their songs are good summer songs,” said marketing major Carlee Heinmillier. “(They’re) kind of electric, kind of indie rock, but at the same time kind of techno. They’re different. It’s hard to put a label to their music or their genre.”
For the event Moose’s Tooth staff recommends carpooling to the event as much as possible. Parking is limited because the concert will be right outside in the parking lot. The lots nearby also bar Moose’s Tooth patrons from parking in their lots. The concert will continue rain or shine as well.
