This Wednesday’s MGMT show at the HMML has a lil’ local connection to it. Albeit a tenuous one.
One of the dude’s dad’s works for a sister paper, in Memphis, of our very own Monterey County Herald.
Just let that sink in.
That is a tidbit to be gleaned from this article in the MCW previewing the show. More importantly, the article interviews not a band member per se, but that father, Bruce VanWyngarden, I just talked about.
That’s cool, right? When do you read about a band from their parents’ point of view?
Of course, that inevitably opens up a Pandora’s box of multi-layered reverse-Oedpial conspiracies. But I won’t go there.
I’ll just let music speak for itself.
