OK Go: "Improbable is what we do"

OK Go @ PopTech

OK Go closed Friday’s session with a brief talk about the current state of the music industry and how they’ve managed to succeed around it thanks to video, content-sharing and being able to put performance back into the musical experience. “Now that the music ‘industry’ has kind of imploded,” said Kulash, “videos no longer have to be ads. They can be more like art.”

The band played several acoustic songs, showed an amazing video starring a bunch of rescued dogs, got the crowd to sing along with them and rocked a lovely set of handbells. Here’s a little video of the bell song shot by a slightly over-caffeinated yours truly from the best seat in the house:

And just because it’s super cute, here’s a video of the slightly star-struck Kulash talking to Kermit the Frog about ping-pong and recording a cover of Muppet music.
