The Go Team played a high-energy set at the Paradise last night that had the crowd jumping through a variety of tracks from their debut album, Thunder, Lightning, Strike, and their new release, Proof of Life.
Based in Brighton, England, TGT is a 6-person band that plays a mixture of pop, hip hop and funk reminiscent of the Beastie Boys and even a little Neneh Cherry (courtesy of Ninja, the freestyle lead vocalist).
This was the first time I saw the band, and they were great. Most of the members play multiple instruments and take turns with vocals, drums, guitars and keyboard (and one harmonica) while dancing around zealously on stage (as evidenced by these grainy cell phone pix).
The packed crowd didn't stop moving and jumping for the entire set. Added bonus: the show ran from roughly 10-11:30, and we were able to run nextdoor to T's Pub both before and after the concert to catch the Red Sox and BC games.
