Pics and Video of Morning Teleportation at Kobo

First and foremost the new layout at Kobo really opened up the space, nice work Jacob!

Morning Teleportation started off their set with what could only be described as the longest soundcheck ever. I’m not sure if its the same routine each show or more of an ad-hoc jam in which each instrument gets a moment comparable to free jazz. Regardless, the best part was watching the confusion on the collective audience face as they didn’t know whether or not to clap. I mean, it wasn’t good enough to be a Morning Teleportation song… was it?

The rest of the set followed suit, with a combination of psychedelic jams that transition into complex guitar solos and “structured” radio friendly tracks such as Expanding Away. However, there was one specific synth hook that stuck with me.

It might have been the 3rd song into the set, but its impossible to know as there’s only a break every 10-15 minutes. Anyways, this synth hook was Asia’s Final Countdown catchy. I was so enamored that by the time I got my phone out to record it, they had already transitioned into the next phase of the song – sans hook. Anyone know the name of the first half this song?

Overall the laser light show might have been a little overboard for such a small room, but the crowd ate it up, so fuck me. And the sound was great thanks to this guy who just so happens to be in one of our favorite local bands.

If you haven’t been to the updated Kobo, get your ass there. Not only is it one of the best sounding and looking venues in Columbus, you can get a Sixpoint Resin for $4.50… drink a couple of those and you’ll swear every band is the best you’ve ever seen.
