Artist Interview: Ok Go

OK GoWe’ve all seen them.  We all love them.  We will never look at treadmills the same way again.  Their videos are the pure definition of “viral” and they are constantly evolving not only their virtual fan base, but their sound which continues to mature with time like a fine wine.  I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Damien and Tim with OK Go at the Metro in Chicago, and they were everything I imagined they would be.  Fun, entertaining and mustached (ok, maybe that last part was just Tim.)  I was able to ask them about the process behind creating their critically acclaimed release Of the Blue Colour of the Sky and get a backstage look at what makes these guys tick.  Check out what they had to say:

After the interview, I was invited to check out the show. I saw OK Go live years ago before the treadmill incident, so needless to say their fan base has grown exponentially since then.  The show sold out (easily) and for good reason.  Besides the great music spanning their entire collection, crowds were treated to light-up fuzzy guitars with lasers, scrolling marquee blazers, up-close cameras on every microphone and a retro video collection to coincide with the rocking out.  Needless to say, there was never a dull moment.  If you get a chance to check them out, do so.  Their show was incredible and has grown to epic proportions since I first saw them in their musical youth.  Check out their tour so you can plan accordingly.  Wouldn’t want to miss out on light-up fuzzy guitars with lasers, would you?
