Official opinions: Welcome to the world of the Plastic Beach

Each Monday, we conclude the Stitely Entertainment company meeting with a musical selection picked by a different staffer to kick off the week. More importantly, we get to share some of our favorite music with each other. My choice: “Rhinestone Eyes” by the Gorillaz, off their latest album Plastic Beach.

This Saturday I had the opportunity to see the Gorillaz play live at the UIC Pavilion. They tour very rarely, so seeing them and their extensive cadre of guest stars play live was absolutely phenomenal! Other musicians included Chicago-based Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, a 9 piece brass band, 5-8 piece string ensemble, a trio of backup singers, 4-6 guest singers and The Syrian National Orchestra for Oriental Arabic Music, not to mention the standard band of 4. The energy and incredible precision of this massive group of musicians proves that even “electronic music” can be as engaging and musical as any intimate acoustic show. There was a not a single butt in the seats throughout this two hour show; it was just a sea of dancing! If you have not already heard this album download the Gorillaz “Plastic Beach” today. You will NOT regret it!

Cheers,
Rachel
