Last night Majical Cloudz and Youth Lagoon played the Fine Line Music Café in downtown Minneapolis. New York-based band Majical Cloudz opened up the show, and their performance was something that I personally have never experienced before.
One of the most unexpected events last night was when he invited the crowd on stage to sit with him as he sung the last song. The audience was confused at first, and then became eager to make their way on stage. After the small stage was filled with people, he began to sing and finished up the show this way.
Youth Lagoon followed Majical Cloudz on the stage, and vocalist Trevor Powers changed up the visuals from the minimalist look that Majical Cloudz had. With a lit back drop and lights flashing and moving about, the change of base was nice to see. They also dedicated a song to their tourmates Majical Cloudz.
Youth Lagoon's latest album, Wondrous Bughouse, is out now (03/05) via Fat Possum Records.
