Incubus - Circles (excerpt)
Alpharetta, Georgia, August 19, 2012

I wasn’t going to post this, because the previously mentioned guy in the white hat obstructed my view of the stage, but the big screen affords some lovely close-ups. Not enough Chris, though.

Mutemath - Drum Trio
Alpharetta, Georgia, August 19, 2012

Let’s not forget these guys from New Orleans, who are opening for Incubus and Linkin Park this summer. They played for what seemed like only a few short minutes last Sunday, so the only decent video I managed to get was this pretty cool drum trio with some sort of homegrown synthesizer, I think. Incidentally, my understanding is that they are sometimes classified as a Christian band, but they’re not up in your face about it, which is a good thing. Listen to their song Odd Soul and see if you don’t think they sound a little like the Black Keys.

Linkin Park - What I’ve Done (excerpt)

I'm totally happy that you posted that video from Sunday with Brandon singing INXS. My mom and I were on the way home from the concert and were trying to remember what song it was!! :)

My pleasure! Your mom might remember that the 80s were kind of an odd time for music, but Incubus has a gift for picking out the good stuff.

Linkin Park - When They Come For Me
Alpharetta, Georgia, August 19, 2012

Incubus is a pretty tough act to follow, but if anyone can pull it off it’s Linkin Park. I’m not as well-versed in their catalog as I am in that of Incubus, but the 11-hour drive to Atlanta gave me plenty of time to brush up. Hard-core fans may scoff, but so far I think my favorite album is A Thousand Suns, which was well represented at the concert. Most of the people in front of me came and went throughout the Incubus portion of the show, but returned in full force for LP and stayed put, so I didn’t have much of a window to take video. I was determined to get this one, though - one of their most interesting songs, I think.

My camera always, always dies during the last song of any concert, so forgive the abrupt ending, but you’ll probably be in such a complete trance by then that there won’t be much that can bother you. Don’t stay zoned out for too long, though. As if the evening hadn’t already been awesome enough, Linkin Park was up next, and I had another memory card in my purse. More video shortly…

Incubus…

”..them and I need to collide.

I’m at it again.

I’m at it again.

Incubus - Need You Tonight (impromptu)
Alpharetta, Georgia, August 19, 2012

My dearest Incufans, I swear to you, the first time ever I saw the face of Brandon Boyd, my exact words were, "this dude is the hottest thing since Michael Hutchence." If you’ve never heard of the late Michael Hutchence, he was the lead singer of INXS, and the guy who inhabited the fantasies of anyone who was paying attention and had a pulse back in the late 80s. Imagine, then, the frenzy I went into when I suddenly heard the words "slide over here" come sliding out of Brandon Boyd’s mouth last Sunday night. I could barely process what was happening, and the prospect of Incubus actually taking Brandon’s seemingly impromptu suggestion that they “should totally learn that song” is still making my head spin. Here’s the clip I managed to get (it’s a miracle my camera was on and pointed in the right direction), and for your further viewing pleasure, here’s a link to the original Need You Tonight by INXS. Granted, it’s very 80s, but still, you might want to turn your A/C down a notch or two. It’s likely to get a little warm.

Incubus - Pardon Me (excerpt)
Alpharetta, Georgia, August 19, 2012

I understand that Brandon Boyd is into inkblots lately, which might explain some of the visual effects here. You be the judge, but a lot of it looks like pelvises to me. Clearly, you don’t have to be Dr. Rorschach to analyze my one-track state of mind at Incubus concerts.
