With bands such as Pretty Lights and Sound Tribe Sector 9 becoming household names in 2013; it's a wonder why more fans of this breakout dub-step/instrumental-feel-good music genre haven't come to know Lotus, who have been around much longer in the music industry than the scene has become mainstream. After releasing a brand new album, Lotus is bringing their music to venues all across the United States and introducing their music to the mainstream in a unique way but before Lotus took to the stage, Moon Hooch opened the set.
Moon Hooch is comprised of two saxophone players and a drummer, who were discovered playing in the subways of New York City. Moon Hooch brought an amazing, upbeat and positive energy to the Intersection in Grand Rapids. The two saxophone players often would compete with each other to see who could player longer or louder. The crowded fed off this friendly competitive energy and was captured by Moon Hooch after the first song completed. After an impressive set from Moon Hooch, the stage was set for Lotus.
Lotus is known for intense musical melodies and an impressive show of lights, their performance last night at The Intersection did not disappoint. Lotus hardly sings and barley addressed the packed crowd at the Intersection but words are not needed. Fans were fully engulfed in the musical sound that Lotus was pumping through the speakers. Lotus understands that there music only needs to be heard by music fans to reach them.
The only disappointing part of the set from Lotus was that they only teased their smash hit, "Spiritualize," instead of playing the full song. Regardless, Lotus fans left spirtualized on a musical level all their own.
