LIGHTS in London

I got to see LIGHTS last night at Monto Water Rats in Kings Cross, London. It’s the second time I’ve seen her this year, the first being in Constitution Hall in DC when she was supporting Owl City. It was definitely a different venue and a different atmosphere: much smaller, more intimate. But it was a good, good gig. I think I love this girl … 🙂

Here are a few pics:

Currently listening to: Owl City and LIGHTS

New music on my iPod:

Owl City is 23 year-old Adam Young, from Minnesota. I can’t post the music video for his song “Fireflies” (which was how I came to hear about him) up here coz embedding is disabled, but check it out. Also check out “Meteor Shower” and “Hello Seattle” on his latest offering, “Ocean Eyes.”

LIGHTS is a 22 year-old from Ontario, Canada. Here’s the music video for her song “Drive My Soul,” from her EP. Her album is coming out next month.

And both are going on tour soon–unfortunately, I won’t be able to catch either of them, but check out their tour schedules here: Owl City and Lights.
