Lotus Covers Side A of Black Sabbath’s Paranoid, Video Game Music
Lotus played two Halloween shows this past weekend. The first took place at Portland, OR’s Roseland Theater Saturday night and celebrated the music of Black Sabbath. The group took the stage for its second set dressed as the members of the classic metal band and ran through Side A for Sabbath’s Paranoid: “War Pigs,” “Paranoid,” “Planet Caravan” and “Iron Man.” The album celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. Lotus then closed its set with “Bellwether,” “Umbilical Moonset,” “Golden Ghost,” “Destroyer” and “Jump Off.”
The band’s second Halloween show took place last night at Seattle, WA’s Showbox at the Market. Lotus celebrated some of the best music featured in video games at various points throughout the two-set show. The group sprinkled a remix of “Power-Pills” from Pac-Man, “Jungle Theme” from Contra and the theme from Tetris throughout its first set and interpreted “Dr. Wiley’s Theme” from Mega Man II as well as the “Overworld” and “Labyrinth” themes from Zelda second set. During the Tetris segment of the show, several dancers dressed as Tetris also took the stage.
