Here’s a taste of what you missed last year:
As the Firefly Music Festival got underway Friday at the Woodlands International Speedway in Dover, Del., OK Go hit the Lawn Stage and quickly reminded all onlookers that they are much more than just a novelty act famous for their “Here It Goes Again” treadmill choreography, “This Too Shall Pass” Rube Goldberg machinations, and slow-mo explosions in “The One Moment.”
So, how did the band that once danced with dogs in “White Knuckles” showcase their actual musical chops? By covering “Black Dog,” by a “little band from England,” Led Zeppelin.
OK Go’s Zep jam session was surprisingly legitimate — treadmill-free, but a real rock ‘n’ roll workout in its own way, muscular, lean, and mean. The Chicago powerpoppers, for better or worse, may always be best known for their creative viral videos (their two YouTube channels have racked up a combined 347 million views), but their simple and effervescent Firefly set — featuring Cheap Trick/Cars-reminiscent toe-tappers like “You’re So Damn Hot,” “Get Over It,” and “Do What You Want”; nearly constant confetti showers; and cocksure frontman Damian Kulash’s SNL-worthy cowbell solos — proved OK Go are as entertaining onstage as they are onscreen.
