I remember first hearing “Come With Me Now” by South African alt-rock band KONGOS on the radio and immediately being hooked on the song, so it was thrilling to see it performed live. Other songs they played over the course of the night included tracks off of their most recent album Egomaniac, such as “Take It From Me,” “Repeat After Me”, and “I Don’t Mind”, as well as older songs “Hey I Don’t Know” and “Escape”. Each song was accompanied by striking visual backdrops taken from their lyric and music videos (think lions and flamingos). Their stage presence rocked the venue as the crowd clapped and jumped along to the set. A KONGOS show is an exuberant experience you don’t want to miss.
