Well, Ke$ha may have bailed on Indy to go practice for an upcoming MTV-sponsored show (while keeping her Chicago gig the night before, natch) but the guys in LMFAO are still determined to entertain Indy audiences; hence, this headlining gig at the Egyptian Room, booked after the cancellation of Ke$ha’s concert on The Lawn for which LMFAO was booked as an opener. Anyways, this show will probably be more fun; LMFAO knows how to write a party rock anthem — witness their track “Party Rock Anthem,” not to mention “Champagne Showers” and “I’m in Miami Bitch” — and they’re infectiously goofy performers who take music seriously enough to make it work but not so much as to become, say, the Black Eyes Peas. Maybe that has something to do with the duo’s members being the son and grandson, respectively, of Motown mogul Barry Gordy — they probably grew up a little jaded, aware that they shouldn’t take this thing too seriously.
Price: $22 (plus fees), all-ages
