Lotus Winter Tour by ranchsauce

This last year has been an expansive one for Lotus. After acting as a premiere late-night band for summer festival’s like Camp Bisco and Rothbury, they have continued to produce the fast-paced and fauxtrotted steez on stage that we can’t help but shake our rumps too. Transitioning nicely into their fusion sound from a strictly organic Rock/Funk sound, a new-but polished-style has emerged adding elements of Jam/Electronica/Jazz.

“Planting the holographic seeds of an LP with stunning potential and the detectable pliability of major advancements to come, they tended to each new addition with careful attention and precision, the initial, introductory phase of the innumerable performances time will eventually put into motion.” – Greg Gargiulo Jambase on the 9/24/08 Mercury Lounge show in NYC

The current Winter 2009 tour is a continuation of their 2008 Hammerstrike Tour, which helped make their newest album- Hammerstrike(Oct. 08′)-a definite success.

Some would argue that no band working today can produce a better blend of head-shaking instrumental pull and knee-knocking electronic sound than Lotus has year after year. The energetic and enthused crowd of fans at any sold out show on their seemingly never-ending tour feeds off of the band’s own encouraging spirit and stamina. And it doesn’t hurt that they don’t leave home for tour without the notorious overhanging light rig-their own slimmed down version of Daft Punk’s light pyramid. What would a fan’s memory of a Lotus gig be without the eye-popping rhythmic light show?

The Spring conclusion to the tour includes a first time performance at Lupo’s in Providence, two night stand Higher Ground in Burlington, VT and another two night banger at the “intimate” Bowery Ballroom in New York City to finish it off in April. Grab some advanced tickets and bust out your 3D-glasses and camera phones once again for Lotus as they finish off this tour on the east coast.
