Rex Orange County joined BadBadNotGood onstage in London last night (November 14th).
The Canadian group released new album 'IV' last year, and took their live show to the next level with a full European tour earlier in the year.
Arranging a show at London's historic Roundhouse venue, BadBadNotGood arrived onstage to a heaving, completely sold out venue.
Opening with a flurry of cuts from 'IV' the band utilised a string section, occasionally touching on those incredible David Axelrod and Isaac Hayes arrangements.
Eager to pull a few surprises out of the bag, BadBadNotGood were joined by frequent collaborator Charlotte Day Wilson, who underlined her enormous potential with a touching vocal performance.
One of the night's real standouts belonged to Rex Orange County. The two share mutual friends - BadBadNotGood are close to the Odd Future crew, while Tyler The Creator was an early supporter of Rex' music - and the London artist played a loose, precocious support set.
Invited back onstage Rex Orange County joined the band - plus string section - for a lengthy workout on 'Wichita Lineman', recalling those early 70s Stax ghetto symphonies in its sheer expanse.
An incredible moment, it underlined the sense of daring, of risk that fuelled a memorable night for everyone onstage.
