Lotus put on a solid showing last night at Bowery Ballroom, I’d break it down about like this:
Music – 8.5, Lights – 9, Crowd – 4
Lotus (w/ BLVD opening)
The Bowery Ballroom
April 10th, 2009
Behind Midwest Store Fronts
Age of Inexperience
Suitcases and Sandwiches
All in all a good time but not quite my cup of tea. The crowd left more than something to be desired – the scenesters were out in full force showing off their flat-brims, sun glasses inside, and all that comes with that shtick. I can’t tell you how many times someone just strolled up into my dancing space and stopped dead – completely unaware of what they were doing. Please, have some decency people!
The 1st set was more jazzy and restrained with some euphoric moments and some nicely executed jams. The 2nd set showed a little bit dirtier and, at times, more rocking side of the band and there were some definite Untz’d out moments. All in all, good times had by all.
Look for a more thorough review of my preferred jam-tronica choice of the Disco Biscuits, next Saturday 4/18/09 at the one, the only, Electric Factory in the city of brotherly love!
