Tame Impala made a stop in Wilmington, North Carolina at the recently built Live Oak Bank Pavilion this week as they near the end of their U.S. Slow Rush tour. Their live show was packed with lights, lasers, and lots of psychedelic imagery, which was to be expected by the Australian rockers. The sold-out show garnered a massive crowd of insanely excited fans who took every opportunity to scream the lyrics at the top of their lungs.

Slow Rush is the band’s fourth studio album which was released in early 2020. If you’re in the states, you’ll want to catch them at their last U.S. show in Louisville, KY at Forecastle Festival before they journey overseas to Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona.

Opening for them was Los Angeles trio Automatic, who recently completed runs with IDLES & Parquet Courts. Automatic synthesizes a new strain of retrofuturist motorik pop and their tight drumbeats and pounding bass were a hit among the crowd. You should expect to see a lot more of this group in the future. Check out their future show dates here, which includes Primavera Sound Festival and a tour with the Oh Sees.
