After a long Memorial Day weekend, AlunaGeorge performed at Observatory North Park on Tuesday night and it was much more than just noise, white noise.
After seeing her at Lightning In A Bottle last year, it was surprising to see a smaller turn out at the Observatory. I mean, this woman is going on tour with SIA later this year (and coming to San Diego again in October, get tickets here). Her crowds should be much bigger, yet, given the timing of a Tuesday night concert following a long weekend… it can be excused.
AlunaGeorge danced herself onto stage, wearing a white baseball cap reversed, a red bra, matching red high-waisted shorts and a transparent and flowy garment (the kind you’d see at a Mexican beach resort). Her voice sounds almost exactly as it does on radio, iTunes, Spotify, CD, vinyl, Tidal?, wherever you listen to your music. The fans in the front were definitely the most excited to see her – predicting that they were the younger crowd (18+) since they were jumping around every time she came close to them. A lucky guy got the towel she wiped her sweat off with. You go Glen Coco…
She started the night off with a few of her radio hits, “Attracting Flies“, “Automatic”, and “Supernatural”. AlunaGeorge has only one full length album, Body Music, so she played most of her album and a few remixes. During the middle of her set, she got real dubstep funky and started DJing between her songs, spicing it up. Later in the night, she performed her latest collaboration between her and the producer, Zhu, “My Blood”, released late April 2016. She ended the night early; the set lasted a little over than an hour but she made the fans move their bodies until the very end. Her most popular songs, including “White Noise” (collaboration with Disclosure) were played, because well, you know you like it.
