An at-capacity Joel Plaskett Emergency gig turned into an impromptu Rivoli visit, for a Saturday night set by Hamilton’s The Human Orchestra (an apt name—there’s a bunch of them—but lacking a certain je ne sais quoi).
Imagine the enthusiasm present in the chorus of Of Monsters and Men’s “Little Talks,” repeated unrelentingly for an entire set, and you’ll have a decent grasp on what THO are peddling. It must be tiring being them, but the crowd certainly had no objections.
Check out The Human Orchestra covering Outkast’s “Hey Ya!” up above (why not?). They’ve got a free single on the Web (though you can make a donation) and a full-length on the way.
