“Om”

...

In the shadow of ancient Egyptian ruins, Om performed a rare set that included the entirety of Conference of Birds and additional material at The Metropolitan Museum on Friday night (7/19). The show, billed as "Om: At Giza," featured the band in front of the Temple of Dendur, a 2000+ year-old Egyptian structure now located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. 600 lucky souls caught the relatively low-volume set, which kicked off after 7PM and lasted approximately 70 minutes. Om's set featured a retooling of the Conference of the Birds material to accomodate for their "new" member (since that LP, anyway) Robert Lowe, who also performed a song of his own that incorporated looping voice and synths.

The Temple of Dendur appearance was a rare set in a setting perfect for Om, who's records deal heavily in religious themes of past. A wholly unique, if not semi-spiritual, experience.
