Robert DeLong

by Metroland Staff on September 4, 2013

UPSTATE CONCERT HALL, WEDNESDAY

 

Robert DeLong is a textbook example of how hard it’s going to be to classify music in the wake of the recent American EDM boom. Trained as a drummer and accomplished as a vocalist, DeLong normally gets the electronic tag due to the samplers and sequencers at the heart of his music. His live rig also includes drums and a Wii remote MIDI trigger, though, while his song construction is some of the poppiest stuff out there. In advance of this year’s debut LP Just Movement, his single “Global Concepts” reached No. 33 on the Billboard alternative charts. Ghost Beach and Mister F will open. (Sept. 11, 9 PM, $15, 1208 Route 146, Clifton Park, 371-0012)
