Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark and GGOOLLDD live in Boston

 
 

Editor’s Note: Of the the more enjoyable comeback stories of the past decade has been the celebrated return of Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. The hit-making English electronic pop group returned after a 14-year absence with 2010’s excellent History of Modern LP, and have since remained in digital playlists with various singles and album cuts off 2013’s English Electric and last year’s The Punishment of Luxury. This past Friday (March 9) OMD brought their stylish synth-pop to an enthusiastic House of Blues, matching their modern takes with an overwhelming arsenal of ’80s standards (“If You Leave,” “Tesla Girls,” “Enola Gay,” “Souvenir,” “Electricity,” and more). There was a lot to pack in, and OMD did it masterfully. María Alejandra Mata was in the room on behalf of Vanyaland to capture some visuals, including a few up-close looks of the openers, Milwaukee’s GGOOLLDD. Scan through her full gallery below.
