Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge -

emem­ber that crazy vi­ral mu­sic video shot on tread­mills in a sin­gle con­tin­u­ous take? It’s hard to be­lieve that 10 years have gone by since alt-rock band OK Go re­leased their mas­ter­ful mu­sic video for Here It Goes Again— to­day, it’s at 75 mil­lion views and count­ing. It’s also hard to be­lieve that the last time they vis­ited Hong Kong was five years ago for their sell-out show in 2010. Time flies, but OK Go tri­umphantly re­turns to the city this month. The four-piece has en­joyed a 15-year ca­reer of up­beat pop-rock, vi­ral mu­sic videos and in­no­va­tive team-ups with an­i­ma­tors, dancers and pup­peteers. To­gether since univer­sity days, the core mem­bers of the band were al­ready play­ing with the likes of El­liott Smith and The Prom­ise Ring within a year of their pro­fes­sional de­but. The Grammy Award­win­ning band re­leased their latest al­bum in 2014, work­ing with Dave Frid­mann (pro­ducer for The Flam­ing Lips and MGMT) and Tony Hof­fer (Beck and Belle & Se­bas­tian). Tick­ets are ex­pected to sell out again, so grab yours fast. July 24; 8pm; $450; KITEC; tick­et­flap.com
