Gotye w/Missy Higgins 

When: Wed., Oct. 3, 7:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $52
Congratulations to Gotye (aka Wouter De Backer). The Australian-Belgian indie-pop singer-songwriter’s 2011 break-through hit “Somebody That I Used to Know” is by far the most ubiquitous song in recent memory. Even if “Somebody” was as good as say, “Satisfaction” (or Elliot Smith’s “Somebody That I Used to Know”), that wouldn’t justify the song’s inescapable ubiquity, which at this point borders on oppressive. In case you haven’t heard it (you have), the lovelorn acoustic guitar- and xylophone-driven ditty sounds like Sting and Ani DiFranco collaborating on an adult-contemporary cover of The Cure’s “Lovesong.” Head to the Ryman tonight to hear it and other songs Gotye ostensibly has.
