Catalpa Recap // TV On The Radio

One of acts I was most looking forward to seeing was TV On The Radio. Not because I'm a huge fan, but because during my college years, at their height of popularity, I was knee deep in a pile of dusty old vinyl. After missing the entire TVOTR rise to fame, I was curious to see what all the fuss was about. I was extremely surprised, not only at how much Guitarist Kyp Malone looks like a Koala-Bear, but at the sheer power these guys bring to the stage. 

Lead singer Tunde Adebimpe and multi-tasker David Sitek formed the band while sharing space in the same Brooklyn building. With influences covering Rock, Funk, Punk, and Electronica, the end result had the whole crowd working as one rocking, dancing, undulating organism. Just being part of it was an amazing experience. I would definitely see them live again. My favorite song they played was a straight up toe-tapper called Golden Age. Listen to it and check out viewing more pics below.
