King of Memes Gotye Hitting Houston October 11

In wishful touring news, an October 11 Gotye date has been announced at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. Right now, you are asking who Goatee is and why he, she or they are headlining an outdoor pavilion. I say wishful because the guy has one single to his credit, but a hell of a lot of memes.

Earlier this year, the Belgian-born Australia-based singer-songwriter scored a fluke hit with his single "Somebody That I Used to Know" which has become the break-up anthem for 2012. Gotye and pop-rock act fun. both lead a charge on the Billboard charts this year, logging chart-topping, highly-requested radio nuggets.

The Gotye album, Making Mirrors, has been a brisk seller, and the single's spare and haunting vocal line evokes 10cc's "I'm Not in Love" and the work of Peter Gabriel, but is less bombastic.

The October 11 date also features Lafayette, Louisiana, natives Givers and Jonti on board for support.

I hope this guy is saving his money..this is gonna be a short ride. One hit wonderland anybody??


Don't hold back... tell us how you really feel about Goyte. :D


The lyrics are creepy as all hell in a "I'm going to put your head in a freezer because you left me" kind of way.

Indeed, especially since the rest of the album sounds nothing like this single. It's not exactly radio-friendly.

Kimbra, on the other hand, can have all my monies.
