I love LMFAO all the more now that I know they want to bring about “the New 80s.”
LMFAO’s is a peculiar, insular world where they evoke the “New 80s,” their phrase for a time of perceived prosperity and frivolity where you can “lose your mind.” The group is keen on marketing not just their albums or countless cross-branded products but an entire immersive party experience. With the endless party supplements and staged environment, the show at the Marquee was less like a party than a simulacrum of a party: the careful work of LMFAO to simulate larger-than-life party moments. The nonstop confetti never marks a climax, just the continuation of an epic party with no real cause for celebration.
