Concertgoers sometimes leave with a memento handed down from the stage, such as a drumstick, a set list, or a plastic baggy full of famous-person sweat. Go home happy with this GrouponLive deal to see Gotye outdoors at Lakewood Civic Auditorium on Sunday, September 16, at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Choose between the following seating options:
- For $20, you get one ticket for general admission in sections 17–21 (up to a $52 value, including fees).
- For $30, you get one ticket for a reserved seat in sections 12–16 (up to a $62.50 value, including fees).
Gotye is best known for delivering the haunting, finger-pointing lyrics of "Somebody That I Used to Know," but his new album, Making Mirrors, finds him working in a variety of moods, including on the joyful, Martha and the Vandellas–inspired “I Feel Better.” The new songs also incorporate more live instrumentation to expand on his usual paint box of intriguing vintage samples, as a 10-piece band will join him on his fall tour. "These are by far my most ambitious shows to date," he wrote on his Facebook page. "There will be no backing tracks used. All visuals will be triggered live.”
For the opening acts, Chairlift thrills fans with dreamy synth-pop and cleverly repackaged '80s beats, continuing to enjoy success after its 2012 sophomore album, Something. Nick Zammuto, former frontman of The Books, helms a new four-piece band, Zammuto, which broadens horizons with its experimental electropop. In a review of the project’s self-titled release from earlier this year, Pitchfork exclaimed, "Zammuto blasts us with musical particles in narrow, swarming beams; each grain rendered with hallucinatory clarity."
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
