One of today’s most playful and tech-savvy bands, pop-rock pioneers OK Go are known as much for their ambitious single-take videos as their colorful songs. The LA band’s innovative work has been honored with three VMAs and the Smithsonian American Ingenuity Award. Their mesmerizing video staged on a block of eight moving treadmills won a Grammy Award, and Time magazine ranked it among its 30 all-time best music videos, alongside Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” For their most recent release, the band worked with producers Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Weezer, MGMT) and Tony Hoffer (Beck, Phoenix, Foster the People) to create their most far-reaching songs yet. In their Santa Barbara debut, OK Go will play along to their most iconic music videos, live scoring them in a family-friendly cinematic environment unlike a traditional rock show. The band will take questions from the audience and offer insight into their unique process.
