Saturday night The Gothic Theatre played host to Lucius who are currently in the midst of their North America Tour. The five piece from Brooklyn came in hot off their first album Wildewoman, and much acclaimed praise off their current album Good Grief. Opening number "Madness", set the tone early for the band with a carefully orchestrated numbers focusing on the harmonies of Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig. Feeding off each other the whole night the duo didn't miss a beat and it translated over to a well balanced show. The crowd seemed to enjoy as they sang lyric by lyric in unison to radio friendly hits such as "Turn It Around", "Go Home", and "Born Again Teen". Having a penchant for style the duo came out in matching gowns (as they always do) to the delight of those in attendance. In a way it compliments their ability to hold their talented voices in perfect harmony just like their matching ensembles. A fun band to see, you never know what to expect from Lucius, one thing is for certain, be prepared for a visual stimulating grand time. Be sure to catch them as they continue on their current tour across the states.
