Tame Impala at the Silverlake Lounge
Many months ago, Tame Impala sold out two shows at the Silverlake Lounge in support of their excellent debut album, Innerspeaker. Tame Impala seemed shocked that they were playing two sold out crowds halfway across the world from their hometown of Perth, Australia.
While its unfair to judge bands by their pedal boards, Guitarist and Lead Singer Kevin Parker definitely knew what he was doing in the pedal department. Most of the crowd couldn't see Parker adjust the Small Stone Phaser pedal with his feet mid song during his guitar solo.
Parker's live guitar tone matched well with the recordings and if Tame Impala continue on the same upward trajectory, they definitely could easily find a place alongside AC/DC and Wolfmother as well respected Australian rock bands.
