LOTUS | 3 Nights at Brooklyn Bowl | 4/4-4/6
NY jam fam, our lands are soon to be blessed with not one, not two, but THREE sensational nights of Lotus, who will be performing at Brooklyn Bowl, an intimate 600 cap venue in the heart of Williamsburg whose concert space is situated adjacent to a full row of bowling lanes, especially fitting for those keen on simultaneously crushing pins, shredding serious gnar & air guitar, and sipping on local craft beer brewed right next door at the Brooklyn Brewery, a feat achievable by only the most skilled of multitaskers. Lotus will be performing a special deconstructed Talking Heads set on 4/4, delivering their very own original grooves while butterly infusing Talking Heads classics re-imagined and respectfully projected through their own signature style. For those who don’t know, a Lotus show is most definitely not something to miss out on. For those who know, well you know. Links to tickets below, snag yours before they sell out.

Lotus has always been difficult to define musically; an instrumental jamband that has favored groove-based improvisation instead of gaudy solos and noodling. Influences of classic electronic dance music, funk, post-rock and dance-rock have all made their way into the Lotus sound. Over the years, their unique musical blend of electronica with jam music has helped forge a new path in the jamband landscape, influencing many younger bands in the scene. Their latest studio effort, Frames Per Second (December 2018), aims to showcase Lotus in a pure, raw form performing live in the studio. Tracked live at Rittenhouse Soundworks in Philadelphia with cameras rolling, the all-instrumental result is both an audio and video project. Instrumental jazz-funk, Norwegian space-disco and other sounds make their way into the expansive 19-song album and documentary. For Frames Per Second, Lotus aimed to incorporate pyschedelia into the album’s sound by combining hypnotic beats with unexpected harmonic or timbral turns. Approaching two decades together, Lotus has toured actively throughout the US working their way up from dingy basement clubs to world-class venues such as Red Rocks. They've become festival favorites, playing everything from Bonnaroo, Camp Bisco and Outside Lands to Ultra Music Festival and Electric Forest, building a hyper-loyal following along the way. A Lotus live show is an experience, a uniquely crafted and improvised set taking everyone, the crowd and band, on a journey.
