Gotye, Neil Young & Crazy Horse: Hot Tickets


“Somebody That I Used to Know” has rocketed Gotye to stardom. The singer will headline Merriweather Post Pavilion in September. (Kyle Gustafson for The Washington Post)
Before the song “Somebody That I Used to Know,” the name Gotye would elicit blank stares. But now, Gotye is Gotye.
