Review - OK Go @ the Catalyst (3/20/15)

Kevin Keating
What an evening! Last Friday night, OK Go kicked off their spring tour with an opening night at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz. Surprisingly, tickets were still available at the door for what shaped up to be a full sensory experience that evening! LA-based openers, White Arrows, put on a solid 30-minute warm-up before OK Go took the stage just after 9:30.

Unbeknownst to most in the crowd, the load-in of the bands equipment took longer than expected and delayed the opening of the venue doors which possibly led to the band cutting their cover of Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog" which they performed the night after at the Warfield in San Francisco.

But besides that minor deviation from their planned setlist, the band sounded tight and well choreographed in their on-stage antics. The band kicked off the night behind a white curtain for the first few songs, and later, showered the crowd with confetti cannons periodically throughout the show. Damian even jumped down into the crowd and waded through the masses to perform with his acoustic in the center of floor during the middle of the show.

The setlist from the night included:

1. Upside Down & Inside Out 

2. You're So Damn Hot 

3. The Writing's On the Wall 

4. I Want You 

5. Obsession 

6. This Too Shall Pass 

7. There's a Fire 

8. Last Leaf 

9. Needing/Getting 

10. I'm Not Through 

11. Get Over It 

12. The One Moment 

13. Skyscrapers 

14. Do What You Want 

15. Turn Up the Radio 

16. Fake It 

17. A Million Ways 

18. White Knuckles 

19. I Won't Let You Down 

20. Here It Goes Again
