Lotus Debut Covers at Halloween Show in Morgantown
Lotus took the stage at The Met in Morgantown, WV for their Halloween show last night. The event was billed as Lotus Presents: Lotus and the Funktastrophe – a Funkified Funkaween.
The performance—which was live audio-streamed via Phoncert—included a couple of debut covers during the first set, including renditions of Earth, Wind and Fire’s “Shining Star” and Thomas Dolby’s “Blinded Me With Science.” In a rare move, the latter song also featured percussionist Chuck Morris on vocals.
The second set also had some interesting moments. such as a take on Kanye West’s “Monster” that was sandwiched between a jammed out “Hammerstrike.” That set contained a raucous “Flower Sermon” to end the show.
