goldfrapp kicked ass at the hollywood bowl!
June 28, 2010 MICHAEL KNUDSEN


last night i had the pleasure of seeing goldfrapp (again) play at the hollywood bowl (a five-minute walk from my apartment) the last of only four tour dates here in the states and of course it was a magical evening all around – that’s how the bowl rolls (you can bring in your own food and wine – it’s such a great experience!) although i missed the first opening act tune-yards – i manged to catch orquesta buena vista social club – and they were amazing – people were on their feet dancing to the hot cuban rhythms! then alison goldfrapp (who at age 43 just came out as a lesbian) and company took to the stage as the stars were shining up above – her vocals were spot on and the sound was incredible – they played a sweet mixture from their four albums (the setlist is below) including a bunch of tracks from their latest release head first – which has already safely secured a spot in my top favorite albums of 2010 – it’s super fun and tight from start to finish – i definitely recommend giving it a spin if you haven’t already – pure pop perfection! popbytes over & out for now … xoxo
