Atlas Genius – “You spin me right round baby right round, like a record baby”: The UC Theatre in Berkeley (May 6, 2017)

Written by Erica Andreozzi


CRAZY ODDS to think that I was huddled between brothers Keith and Mike Jeffery of Atlas Genius EXACTLY 4 years ago when I saw them on May 7 at Electrowerz in London. They were as just as kickass as I remember, pumping up the crowd with older (If So, Backseat, When it Was Now) and newer (Stone mill, Stockholm, Where I belong), as well as a super sick cover of ‘You Spin Me Round (Like a Record).’ A few if Mike’s guitar parts remind me a bit of Foals , which is ALWAYS a good thing (love that band). And if Mike’s climbing into the crowd didn’t already have the crowd jumping for joy, he made of it later when asking everyone to crouch down and jump up in unison. The peak participation was of course at the very end with their epic encore of Trojans, the track that sparked their global success. Now most people can get enough of those “Trojans in my head.” 😀 So glad to have caught them on tour with the INCREDIBLE Andrew McMahon and the Wilderness last night at UC Theatre In Berkeley! They play the @thefillmore tonight in SF – not to be missed! @blncdbrkfst @apeconcerts @wbr #atlasgenius #andrewmcmahoninthewilderness #wildernesstour #uctheaterberkeley #meetingtheband #musicforthemasses #nootherkindofhigh
