Tycho, who is on the second leg of the Weather World Tour, came to the historic Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California.
During their performance at the Greek Theatre, Tycho performed many songs from his fifth studio album, Weather. This collection of songs introduces a vocalist, which is something they have never done before. Tycho has been around since 2006 and has gone on many tours but this time around they promised a completely different show than what they have ever done before.
Tycho, a Grammy-nominated electronic music project led by composer Scott Hansen, started their hour and a half set with “A Walk.” The song is from their second studio album Dive which was released in 2012. Tycho’s music is both progressive and futuristic with calming songs with a chill vibe which captures the sounds of lo-fi analog media. The stage visuals and lights helped amplify the music.
The concert was a bit of a homecoming for Scott as he grew up in the Bay Area and had many family and friends in attendance. Six songs into their set they performed “Japan” and brought out Hannah Cottrell, aka Saint Sinner. She sings lead vocals on several songs on Weather. The crowd went crazy when she came to the stage, and they sang along to all the lyrics. After that, she stayed for three other songs, “For How Long,” “Easy,” which saw Saint sitting on a giant speaker stage right and “Pink & Blue.” During the last song, a woman from the crowd somehow managed to get on stage, but security was able to remove her right away.
Next, they performed “Glider” a song that Scott said he and Zac Brown (bass/guitar) wrote in an apartment very close to the Greek Theatre. The apartment was so close that they could hear music from a show playing while he was writing it. At one point, Saint Sinner returned to the stage to help perform “No Stress.” After that, the band left, and everyone thought the night was over. To the crowd’s delight, the group came back out for an encore and played two more songs. The first was “Skate,” which included Saint and then “Division.”
It was a packed show with a venue that can hold up to 8,500 people. You could tell everyone was having a good time listening to the music and enjoying the beautiful night. Everyone stayed until the very end of the show and did not let the weather, which got down to 60 degrees, bother them.
You still have time to see Tycho as they will be touring all over the US until the end of the month. Tycho will then begin visiting other countries in February of 2020 for all of their international fans.TYCHO
