Tonight, Patrick Watson will bestow upon us indie music done right. Patrick Watson is comprised of Patrick himself, as well as Mishka Stein, Robbie Kuster, and Simon Angell. Instead of recording their latest album, Adventures in Your Own Backyard in an expensive studio, the band opted to record in Patrick’s home studio, citing expensive costs of recording in a professional studio. He says. “It’s not like a make-shift studio. No one can afford to go to a real studio.” I had the opportunity to have a brief interview with Patrick Watson (himself) as the band were travelling to a destination to perform a show.

Briana Henry: How did the concept come about for the music video “Into Giants”?

Patrick Watson: We wanted to do a live performance. My ex-girlfriend was a professional dancer and it’s a guilty pleasure. I got to learn how to tap dance!

Also check out their amazing performance from a show for NPR in Washington, D.C. HERE.

The band will play tonight at the Wexner Center with support from Columbus’ own, Mike Wojniak. Tickets can be purchased at www.wexarts.org or at the box office.

    So bummed I couldn’t go to that show, hope some CU’ers got to go!

  • Was a great great show..had never heard of Patrick Watson before and he was just awesome. The light show with two projectors spitting out digital images on two giant circular mesh screens on either side of the stage was a really cool effect as well. I had the honor of playing with Mike Wojniak opening up the night and it was just a great great space to perform in and such a captive audience. The Wexner Center puts on amazing shows people really should go to more of them! (including me)
