Kasbo Takes Me to New Places at The Music Box
It’s a Sunday night and it’s a rare day in sunny San Diego. That night brought low 60/high 50 degree temperature. Despite the cold, numerous concertgoers bundled up in their jackets to wait in line for Kasbo. It’s not every day, or even year, that Kasbo performs in San Diego. In his debut in “America’s Finest City”, he brought in a near-packed audience to the Music Box. I was excited to see what he had in store and ascended to balcony to get aerial view of what was to come next.
ford. and Vancouver Sleep Clinic were the openers and managed to keep the crowd hyped. However, everyone was not satisfied just yet. They were still waiting for the main event, the headliner, the man of the hour, Kasbo. I’ve listened to his music before but I didn’t know what to expect from the Swedish boy wonder. I’ve seen other electronic artists perform in the past but none were as impressive as Kasbo.
He had a wide array of instruments that he played throughout his set. He performed numerous hits such as his remix of Ed Sheeran’s “Happier” and “The Little Things”, his Big Gigantic collaboration. He played a mix of his remixes alongside songs from his Places We Don’t Know album, including a personal favorite of mine, “Lay It On Me”. He also incorporated fantastic visuals to go along with the lights for his songs. You can really tell he put in a massive amount of effort to make his set as great as it was. Kasbo’s talent and stage presence was undeniable and I hope he won’t deny San Diego another performance the next time he tours.
