Making Electricity

Who would have guessed that lo-fi synth-pop would be the sound of 2009? Well, MGMT did, which is why they're now rich and I'm not.

At their first show, back at Wesleyan University, MGMT (then known, or at least pronounced, as "Management") played a 45-minute version of the Ghostbusters theme - something strange in your neighborhood, to say the least, but I bet it was a lot of fun. I have not been able to determine whether Bill Belichick was in attendance.
