Last week, FLOOD was honored to play host to a very special evening of music from innovative experimental-rock group Blonde Redhead, the band’s sole scheduled Los Angeles performance for the foreseeable future.
With an intimate ambiance of candlelit walls and soft violet stage lighting, Kazu Makino, Amedeo Pace, and Simone Pace brought tea and whiskey onto the stage and opened the set with their latest LP Barragán‘s idyllic, instrumental title track, which lulled the crowd into a whimsical, string-laden trance of dream-like adoration. The performance was short, sweet, and largely reflective of their most recent album, but as the night wound down and the audience called for the band to continue, longtime fans were treated to some old favorites from 2004’s Misery Is a Butterfly (including a finale of “Melody”). Afterwards, the group mingled with friends and fans as the memorable night came to a close.
