Preview: Awolnation at the LC

By Columbus Alive
From the September 20, 2012 edition

It’s not surprising that a song with a chorus like “It’s not your fault! It’s not your fault!” is popular in 21st century America, but Aaron Bruno’s talents go beyond tapping into our culture’s extended adolescence epidemic. The man behind Awolnation matches rock and electronic elements masterfully. He’s a beast when it comes to synching universal pop music components (check that “Cold As Ice” keyboard line in “Sail”) with the requisite synth and drum machine sounds this generation gobbles up like candy.

He is the zeitgeist, and he’s coming to the LC’s indoor stage this Wednesday to play songs from his Red Bull Records debut “Megalithic Symphony.” Imagine Dragons opens.
