Leave the glow sticks and fancy Roxy threads at home, but definitely bring your white man’s overbite and dance kicks. Philly five-piece Lotus have just announced their fall tour dates to bring the latest grooves off of Escaping Sargasso Sea to a club near you.
Hard to believe these guys met at a Mennonite college, but wherever they met there’s no denying the vibes of their experimental, funky, jazzy-math rock, disco fusion. Sometimes it’s a little too trancy and you end up zoning out or wishing they would play a new song, but regardless, that’s the chance you take when you plunk down money to see any band strut their stuff live. And boy do these guys bring it. You’ll be dancing and sweating your ass of in no time.
If you like LCD Soundsystem or even Daft Punk, then be sure to hit up Lotus this fall. The band’s comprised of Steve Clemens on drums, Jesse Miller on bass and samples, Luke Miller on guitar and keys, Chuck Morris on electronic and acoustic percussion and finally, Mike Rempel on guitar.
