Electronic sensation Lotus hosted not one, but two shows in Philadelphia, PA, both at the Union Transfer. From wild solos, to funky synth and electronic leads, this band did it all during their performance. From the opening gate, fans were prepping their two step, getting their drink on, and even some were juggling glow in the dark balls (which was extremely hypnotizing.) As soon as Lotus came on stage, the crowd erupted as fans belted out any and all the energy they had stored within them.
Lotus is considered a multi-genre band, and for a good reason too. They had electrifying synths that shocked the whole place, they had smooth and rambunctious guitar solos tied along with groovy bass tracks, and of course, a drummer and a percussionist that kept the entire crowd swaying back and forth throughout the entire night with their exotic rhythms. Lotus had transformed the entire Union Transfer into a dance club with their performance. The venue was extremely crowded from front to back and from the floor level to the upper deck.
Dancing circles were pretty much mosh pits due to how densely packed the whole floor was, which everyone didn’t mind, including the people standing around the pits, laughing, smiling, and talking to other fans while listening to a fusion of rock, electronic, and funk being pumped through the speakers. Absolutely everybody was moving and grooving along to the music in one way or another.
Something that most people took for granted was the light set up that Lotus had. Before the opening band started to play, the lighting technician was playing around with the stage lights, moving them in different patterns and flashing different colors around here and there, which had caught the eyes of the early concert goers. As soon as Lotus touched down on stage, various light patterns were constantly being thrown into the audience to enhance the show.
