It's been a long road for Lights aka Valerie Anne Poxleitner, who headlined at the 9:30 Club last Sunday on the latter part of her year long tour. After this leg, her touring days are put to a halt as she heads back in the studio to make new music. So if you haven't had a chance to see this girl in action, don't miss out - it'll be awhile until you see Lights again.
Lights brought her own brand of electro-pop to the stage with a stellar lightshow (of course) and complete control of her environment. The solo front-woman came on and dove right into "Fourth dimension" and "Peace sign". She thanked the crowd and smoothly transitioned to her popular hit "Second Go". That was pretty much when the house went wild with high energy from her loyal SOULgiers waving their hands and bobbing their heads trying to absorb the beats.
The tempo slowed down a bit when she sang her classic ballads like "February Air" and "Heavy Rope" interjecting in-between songs to greet happy birthday to a fan spending his special day at her show. Apparently she liked his red flannel too. "Good choice" she stated.
