Disclosure: More Than Just Two Guys Behind Turntables

By the time I sat down in my upper-level seats at the House of Blues two nights ago, I was already pleasantly surprised by the venue.  I had some reservations about not getting standing room tickets, but I soon realized that the view from the mezzanine was actually awesome.  The entire stage was in view for the first time in my life; after two unmemorable opening acts, each of the two brothers in Disclosure stood on separate sides of the platform, and I could see everything.

The best part of Disclosure’s performance was that it wasn’t just two guys behind turntables. They both brought out different instruments, including a full drum set and an electric guitar, showing a lot more skill than most DJ’s.  The set list was perfect, giving the crowd exactly what they wanted, playing well known tracks, and then sprinkling in some that I had never heard before.  They of course ended the show with their most famous song “Latch”, and when they dropped the first notes, the entire crowd went wild.

Would I go see them again? Yes - and I will definitely be dancing along the next time they hold a concert in our city. If you happen to be in NYC this weekend, I would definitely recommend seeing them.
