Can MGMT play real instruments? Do they write and produce their own music? Are they joking?
These are all questions you may be asking yourself after witnessing an MGMT show. However, although these questions may have easily accessible solutions, we like to pretend that we don't know the answers. You figure it out for yourself. Only old man future knows the answers. Go Ask him. Or even better, call him on his cell phone at 901-355-6371.
Will you join us in our quest for whatever it is we are questing for? Will you join the MGMT malevolution? Equal parts creativity and destruction, sincerity and insincerity, justice and injustice? Why not? If you are young and haven't lost all hope, then you kind of have to. Sorry. What will MGMT be when you see them next? Indie Karaoke Agitators? Hippie innovators? Medieval folk revivalists? Who knows. Old man future knows. So call him again.
"MGMT have gone from campus lark to psych-pop superstars and ragtag fashion icons."
"An irresistibly wistful, electropop rite of passage.”
"VanWyngarden and Goldwasser spike their pop songs with plenty of grit."
