Show Review

As I think we can all attest, everyone could use a little more vacation time in his/her life...at least, that's the message that Philadelphia-based singer-songwriter Kenny Vasoli wants us to hear. Vasoli and the rest of Vacationer are making music true to this calling. The high-energy, jazzed-up indie pop that emanated from the speakers at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel makes you want to go dancing on a beach somewhere far, far away. Complete with a vibraphone player and four vocalists, this soulful performance will brighten your day and take you away on a 23-minute vacation from whatever it is that's occupying your mind.

I've got a good friend Living it up when I'm home
Yeah I've got someone Waiting for me when I'm gone
Yeah I've got a good friend Lifting me up when I'm down
Well it's the perfect time And new moon rising
You are looking too I'm feeling good as new, as new
Feeling good as new, as new
I've got excitement Spilling right over my tongue
We're in a new place You had to bring me along
Yeah I've got it good, got it real good Somewhere where I can belong
Well it's the perfect time And new moon rising
You are looking too I'm feeling good as new, as new
Feeling good as new, as new
It's a new world turning, True love burning
You are looking too
Feeling good as new, as new Feeling good as new, as new
It's new, new
I need a trip A trip's what I need
Simmer and sip As cool as can be
Heaven isn't coming on
Heaven is come and gone
Love's not coming through
Yeah I need a fix To put me to sleep
Or a permanent kick The world's kicking me
Buzz it is coming off
Buzz it has come and gone
Love's not coming through
Heaven is come and gone Love's not coming through
It's been split Cracks underneath
Covered up slick Sparkling clean
The polish is coming off
The dream has come and gone
Love's not coming
Yeah I need a fit As good as can be
And I know a cab is waiting for me Love it is coming off
Love that's come and gone Love's not coming through
Ohhh Whoop
Ohhh Whoop
- Thank you very much.
Thanks a lot.
I just want to send out our deepest gratitude to South by Southwest and everybody that's come to see us at these shows.
It's been amazing.
Time of my life people.
Thank you very much.
Where would we be If you could see
Hold up her head please But you won't want worries
She can't have defeat But hold on to cares and fears
All our fun with all we've grown to know All our hopes have spun away
Out I come where I'm known to go
All our hopes have spun away ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay
Whoo, who knew if you're coming home You want it in your life
But you've lost it in your mind Whoo who knew if you're ever coming home
You want it in your life But you've lost it in your mind
Dreamlike
Oh where would we be If you were with me?
Hold on, can't stay, can't be Now you don't want to say
You love me or you know me So go on prepare to leave
All of our fun, all we've grown to love All our hopes that spun away
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay Away, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay
Whoo, who knew if you're coming home You want it in your life
But you've lost it in your mind whooo, who knew if you're ever coming home
You want it in your life But you've lost it in your mind
Dreamlike
Whoo, whooo, whooo, whooo, whooo, Whoa-oh oh oh
Whoo, whooo, whooo, whooo, whooo, whooo, Whoa-oh oh oh
- Thank you.
Ooooh aah aah aah aah aah aah
Peace of mind Heaven knows you give me mine
And I spring to life The pleasure when we're linking eyes
But you're gone and away But without you here
I'm feeling out of place
Gone, gone I will be waiting for you here, oh no
No matter how long you're gone, gone No matter how long you're gone, oh no
No matter how long you're gone
The sting is slight It's nothing that we won't abide
And I'm sleeping nights But you're warm and awake But without you here
I'm only half awake
I dream, dreaming of you It's never enough
Dream, dreaming of you It's never enough
There's no substitute
Gone, gone I will be waiting for you here, oh no
No matter how long you're gone, gone No matter how long you're gone, oh no
No matter how long you're gone, gone I will be waiting for you here, oh no
No matter how long you're gone you're gone
No matter how long you're gone oh no
No matter how long you're gone
- Thank you very much, Austin.
When you held me up, you held me up
You made me man again Oh before you know
Before you know You're onto all new friends
So cut off on your own You're on your own
It's only me again Out of open arms
You walk in from still all I'd give
Just to be with you all night Just to be with you all night
Just to be with you all night Just to be with you all night
Well just to be with you
Ohhh
And when you gave me up
You just gave me up. Never met again
Oh you wound me up
You just wound me up
And now you're off to friends Cause it was all for once
But all for love Remember all I'd give
Just to be with you all night Just to be with you all night
Just to be with you all night Just to be with you all night
Just to be with you
- Everybody go on a vacation from your problems.
All the time.
Always.
This song's a remix.
It's called "Jesus Baby.
" - I'd like to see this place popping for just one song.
Just one last song, side by side, unless we're going home.
The tears about to begin And the ecstasy is kicking in
We're getting ready for the next phase Please take me to a different place
I want to feel it in my heart again Jesus baby fill me with your love again
Gimme gimme something to believe in
Mercedes fill me with your love again
I wanna party in the basement And dance barefoot on the cold cement
Wanna make out in a movie yeah Do the things we did back then
I want to feel it in my heart again Jesus baby fill me with your love again
Gimme gimme something to believe in
Mercedes fill me with your love again
Thank you very much.
This has been the best South by Southwest of my life.
Thank you very much.
Everybody enjoy yourselves for one last tune.
Enjoy both the other bands, and thank you once again from the bottom of our heart for giving us this.
Thank you.
Should've been better Then whenever we got it together
We had it all wrong Long enough for the moments
We were smoking We're slow as can be
We once were amazed
We found another place Guess that's just how it goes
Now we're off on our way Sounds like everyone knows
We found another place Guess that's just how it goes
Now we're off on our way Sounds like everyone knows
We should cool off
I'm better leaving room for another Not a bother
Could've had all All that love if we lasted
But we passed it I'll never forget
I've been weaning right off of her charm It was leading me wrong
It's slow, it's impaired it's dark, mood sustained
But the core is maintained here
We found another place Guess that's just how it goes
Now we're off on our way Sounds like everyone knows
We found another place Guess that's just how it goes
Now we're off on our way Sounds like everyone knows
We found another place Guess that's just how it goes
Now we're off on our way Sounds like everyone knows
Here we found another place Because that's just how it goes
Now we're off on our way Sounds like everyone knows
We should cool off, cool off

Artist Bio

Formed in 2011 as a side project for Philly-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Kenny Vasoli, Vacationer blends the escapist dream pop of Beach House with the quasi-mystical electro-pop of Animal Collective.

Rhythmic, heady, and hypnotic yet peppered with heartfelt lyrics and genuine emotion, Vacationer released its debut EP in 2011, followed by the full-length Gone in 2012; both were put out by Downtown Records. ~ James Christopher Monger
