EMPIRE OF THE SUN @ THE MUSIC BOX

Finally! Empire of the Sun made it’s way to LA, playing 4 sold out shows at the Music Box at the Henry Fonda Theater. I was lucky enough to make it to their final show on Saturday night, and even though I was warned that their stage show was elaborate, I was not prepared for their over-the-top performance. It resulted in one of the best performance’s I’ve seen all year. Their stage apparatuses looked like they belonged in the dance tent at Coachella. Their entire show was accompanied by dancers who looked like they came out of a Lady Gaga or Kylie Minogue video. This may have been the tour supporting Empire of the Sun’s first album, but band members Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore have been owning their homeland of Australia for 10 years as members of The Sleepy Jackson and Pnau, respectively. It doesn’t look like they will be playing many more shows this year, so if you missed out this time around, make sure you make the sacrifices needed to catch them next time. It might have taken a spot in a Vizio commercial to gain them some notoriety in the US, but if Empire of the Sun turns out to be more than just a side project, you can bet you will be hearing their name for years to come.
