Tune-Yards, Son Lux Fitzgerald's April 10, 2015
If there's something Tune-Yards learned about Houston music fans Friday night at Fitz, it's this: if you win our love once, we're yours forever.
At least, that may have been the circumstance, since the building was packed shoulder to shimmying shoulder for the band's return to Houston after a midsummer-afternoon slot on Free Press Summer Fest 2014. Nearly a year later, it would seem many who caught that stellar performance have learned the lyrics from the band's collective of albums and tabbed songs as "favorites." They've told friends, who are also now swooning over the band's bass and drum-loop-laden indie-pop, it would seem.
At least there was enough love to completely pack the main floor and balcony of Fitzgerald's with adoration, the kind that included extended applause after every song, the sort that had front woman Merrill Garbus uttering "you're making a girl blush up here" by the end of the night.
