Caribou, Jessy Lanza Fitzgerald's November 22, 2014
I want to begin this review by showing my respect and appreciation for the crowd that showed up to see Caribou and Jessy Lanza rock Fitzgerald's Saturday. Not only was this show sold out in advance, but the house was packed even though the night was filled with hours of gross rain and wind. I've been going to shows in Space City for years, and it's been a long time since I've experienced a gathering of music fans willingly standing in line in the rain just to attend a concert featuring electronic artists. Kudos, Houston.
And guess what? Your patience was rewarded by a stellar opening set from Jessy Lanza, followed by a glorious and stunning 90-minute performance by Caribou. You responded by dancing, grooving, bobbing your heads, and generally basking in the evening's mix of sumptuous bass, '70s prog/funk, and '80s electro-pop. A good time was truly had by everyone involved.
