The multi-genre, instrumental ensemble Lotus played two nights in Chicago to a house full of dancing fans.
Their is a very curious space between electronica and jam bands that at first brush doesn't seem like a obvious match. Self discribed as jamtronica, Lotus finds that sweet spot, then blasts of from their to new danceable heights. The group incorporates elements of rock, electronica, jazz, jam, hip-hop, funk and other influences. But worth the mention, their lighting is spectacular with a complex rig of color washes and sequenced spots that is dazzling.
