Album Review

To commemorate their 20th anniversary in 2011, Incubus literally set up shop on La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles, renting out a storefront and dubbing it their HeadQuarters. Incubus' intent was to use their past to showcase their present. Over the course of four nights they dug deep into their past, playing large chunks of their early albums and excavating a few non-LP rarities, eventually weaving in selections from their new album, If Not Now, When?

HQ Live crackles with energy yet also illustrates the finesse in this sometimes underrated band; stripped down to the basics, their imagination and intensity shine brightly.
