MEUTE Plays a Free Concert in Front of the Lincoln Memorial
October 8, 2019
The techno marching band MEUTE is used to playing in unconventional venues. The Hamburg-based band has always made an effort to take to the streets to reach new audiences outside of typical concert spaces. Even when playing in concert halls, the band climbs down from the stage to play a few songs with the audience in the middle of the crowd.
Last week, MEUTE took things to the next level with a free, open-air performance in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. Donning their signature red marching band jackets, the band played for an energetic crowd full of old and new fans alike.
Check out this video to hear a sampling of the concert and see what the crowd had to say after the performance!
MEUTE will be on tour this month throughout the United States. Find a tour stop near you on the MEUTE website.
