If you have been in a mall, near a radio, on the beach, in a nightclub or have taken a Zumba class anytime in the last few months, it is highly likely you have heard the song “Party Rock Anthem” by the duo known as LMFAO at some point. The tune has reached the top position on the pop music charts while charting close to the top of several other genre hit lists, and is also extremely successful as a download, on YouTube and as a ringtone. In other words, it’s not only one of the biggest songs of the year, chances are you’ve wrestled with it to the point where you’re singing it uncontrollably, even if you don’t like it – a common occurrence when concerning a track such as this.
“Anthem” has also helped make LMFAO members Stefan Kendal Gordy (aka “Redfoo”) and Skyler Gordy (aka “SkyBlu”) hot concert tickets. Currently on tour around North America, the pair will be performing at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh (along with pop/dance singer Ke$ha) at 7:30 p.m. Tickets run from $30-$258, depending on seating and are available through theatrewantagh.com.
However, there are other ways to see the two live during the weekend.
Although they won’t be doing their music, Redfoo and SkyBlu are scheduled to sign autographs earlier that same Saturday at the Tilly’s clothing shop in the Roosevelt Field mall in East Garden City. Set for a 2 p.m. signing session, only customers who buy an LMFAO CD at the store will be issued the VIP wristband necessary to take part. Tilly’s will be selling them right up until 1 p.m. on the 20th, so as of this writing, the discs and bands are still available.
However, should you miss them at Tilly’s and at the Jones Beach show, LMFAO will be making a third stop on Saturday – this time at the GLO nightclub in Westbury. Both band members are set to take over the DJ booth for a session of dance beats after 10:30 p.m., with “guest list” space available via glonightclubli.com. Expect admission to run for around $20-$30 (always subject to change) and a very, very long line to get in; best bet is to arrive early.
