The Fox Theatre played host to legendary Alternative Rock band Incubus on October 16, highlighting the achievement of 20 years for their breakout album ‘Make Yourself,’ with support from the multi-talented Elise Trouw.
Bringing her talent to the forefront by not only having an amazing voice but also coming to the stage alone to play every instrument herself, Trouw achieves a feat that many artists can’t manage on their own. With her crooning voice similar to those of retro days past, her multi-tasking punches through the ceiling, an act you must check out on Spotify (or your streaming service of choice), and also makes her one of the best opening acts I’ve seen in a minute.
As for Incubus, the band stays true to their roots for their 20th anniversary of ‘Make Yourself,’ playing the classic tunes you’ve grown to know and love as an Incubus fan, including “Pardon Me,” “Stellar” and “I Miss You.”
During their monumental song “Drive,” lead singer Brandon Boyd slips into The Cars’ “Who’s Gonna Drive You Home,” most likely to honor the passing of The Cars’ Ric Ocasek before bringing it back to center for the remainder of the track, following with Boyd playing the drum with his hands. DJ Chris Kilmore also has an interlude of his own on the turntables before the rest of the band rejoins the stage. Even rockstars need breaks, okay?
They rounded out the show with a new track, as well as a few tracks from albums after ‘Make Yourself,’ showcasing that Boyd and the rest of the band haven’t lost a step. Their flawless execution of their 20-year-old album and beyond proves their talent will live on, not only with ‘Make Yourself,’ but the rest of their catalog as well, as a staple of the Alternative Rock world.
Check out the footage below, and do yourself a favor and revisit ‘Make Yourself’ this weekend.
