Watch Atlas Genius’ “Artist To Watch” live performance at NYC’s Webster Hall!
When bands adapt to the elements in an “anything-can-happen” situation, and STILL put on an amazing show, that’s the mark of a true “Artist To Watch” right there. Australian indie rockers Atlas Genius were faced with such a situation when performing at NYC’s Webster Hall for their “Artist To Watch Live” performance this past week (check out photos from their show here). Right in the middle of their set, a PA exploded, and the band was forced to finish their performance without electricity. But despite their electrical setback, the guys STILL brought down the house with a brilliant stripped-down performance of songs like “Trojans” and “All These Girls.” So, if you aren’t familiar with MTV Artists To Watch Atlas Genius, now would be the perfect time to GET familiar. Pfft, who needs power, anyway?
