The first time I went to see Robert DeLong, I had no idea what I was about to discover. About 45 minutes after his set started, my mind was blown and I was a believer.
Using unconventional tools, such as a Wii Remote and joysticks connected to his MIDI interface, Robert mixes and loops samples while playing the drums and singing. The results are phenomenally rich and vibrant songs that all come from this one-man band. After witnessing his talent for myself, I’m not surprised he’s played at festivals such as Governor’s Ball, SXSW, and Coachella.
If this sounds like something you’d like to witness firsthand, be sure to enter to win a pair of tickets for his show at El Rey Theatre on January 31st. Here’s how:
1) Leave a comment below this post. Simple as that!
4) Follow LA Music Blog on Twitter, then send us a tweet using the hashtag #LAmbRobertDeLong.
That’s up to six chances to win total! If you aren’t the lucky winner, don’t be too disheartened; tickets are still available for purchase. Doors are at 8pm, and this show is all ages.
