I was fortunate enough to be invited to a show for Darius Lux at the House of Blues in West Hollywood last weekend. The experience reminded me of why I enjoy live music so much.
Darius Lux and his band, packed the Parish Room. If you’ve ever been there, you know that there isn’t a stage. The band pretty much just sets up in a corner, still the sound in the room in pretty awesome and for some reason being on the same level as the band makes you feel like you’re really a part of something and need to participate.
The whole set lasted more than an hour and I was surprised that the band didn’t lose their initial energy because I know I did. They maintained their vitality and showmanship throughout their set that covered some songs off of Darius’ new EP Time is Now, his old album Arise and some covers including Gnarles Barkley’s “Crazy.”
Darius Lux’s natural charisma was interesting to watch on stage and I would highly recommend catching him the next time he performs and while you’re at it, check out the EP!
