Tempo No Tempo

These guys totally kill it.

Tempo No Tempo @ Doug Fir 31.3.2010

Yet again I went to a show not expecting to hear groundbreaking music from the opening band. World’s Greatest Ghosts produce such fun, heartfelt, and high-energy indie rock I really didn’t know what to expect from their support. I was genuinely surprised to hear music that was simultaneously catchy and avant-garde. Tempo No Tempo have the gift of being able to be experimental and improvise on stage without making you feel like a yawning bystander at a jam session. They manage to combine elements of no wave and lo-fi without sounding like pretentious performance art. I’m excited about music again.
