Popular American rock band MGMT comes to the Orpheum in support of their recent release Little Dark Age.

Their latest album Little Dark Age is both an expression of surprise and dismay to the current political and social climate with an occasional reference to their own personal lives. The triumph of Donald Trump being elected as President of the United States is where the inspiration came. Of the election, VanWyngarden stated, "We were like, 'Wow, is it actually possible for the most impossible thing to happen? Apparently, we were more inspired to write pop music after evil took over the world." Touring guitarist, James Richardson, also provided great inspiration, which resulted in the song 'James' being dedicated to celebrate the band's friendship.
