What's so good?
By Jason Grishkoff | Sep 21, 2012

Yesterday saw Mochipet play Nightlife at the Cal Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.

Frontman David Wang was joined for the first time by an on-stage live drummer, a new approach that he has been crafting on the back-end but was yet to premiere...until last night.

The cool part? They stuck to the event's dinosaur theme, entering stage wearing Jurassic masks that reminded me a lot of Deadmau5 (yes, there were LEDs). The crowd was pretty solid to start, and enjoyed the antics greatly. Many found themselves shifting back and forth to the glitch-rock / noise-rock of Mochipet.

That said, I'm not sure this was my favorite kind of live show. Things got pretty redundant -- as if I was listening to a modern-day jam band. My favorite parts were the bridges that popped up here and there: a quieter approach that allowed you to actually distinguish the harmonies. Unfortunately, the rest could have been done with in the first five minutes.
