Last night I was lucky enough to see Lush perform at the Roxy on Sunset. The show was rescheduled from April 14th, due to the band having some visa issues [boo!]. Miki was gracious and unnecessarily apologized for having to delay the show to a crowd that had already forgiven the issue. It was wonderful to see and hear the band perform live, and despite being such a small venue, the band sounded massive and full.
The setlist favored Gala with Split coming in a close second with one track less at six. Personal highlights for me, aside from the obvious “De-Luxe” and “For Love,” were “Lovelife,” “Undertow,” and “Lit Up.” The new track “Out of Control” slipped so effortlessly into the set, and was absolutely stunning to hear live.
But the show stealer was definitely “Sweetness and Light,” they absolutely slayed the track so much so that I wasn’t even mad that they didn’t play “Nothing Natural.” And I would be lying if I said I didn’t get a little misty when they came out for the second encore and Miki dedicated “Monochrome” to Chris.
Hopefully this little teaser will be a lead in to great things on the horizon and not just a little taste of nostalgia.
