Opening the show was a bearded and baseball-capped Marcel Rodriguez-Lopez, also known as Eureka the Butcher, who provided some mesmerizing beats for fans to groove to as they waited for Autolux. Marcel is probably best known as the keyboardist and percussionist of The Mars Volta.
The set drew largely from the band’s latest Pussy’s Dead and their fantastic first record Future Perfect (2004) with a few from Transit Transit (2010). As the band played a backdrop of trippy lights and images were projected on a screen behind Azar and aided in the futuristic fever-dream atmospherics the music induced.
