Lotus played a two-day run at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia for New Years Eve this year, closing out a very successful 2013. As several members of the band call Philly home, they were extremely well received by an energetic and excited crowd. The New Years Eve show was sold out, and in addition to two amazing sets of music, fans were also treated to a spectacular light show and extensive glow in the dark decorations. An over-sized mushroom forest was installed upstairs, and there were reminders all around that you were not just at a Lotus show, but a very special Lotus show. Toward the end of the first set, Ras Arcane joined Lotus on stage to perform their single “Cloud 9,” off of the Monks album. The lively audience responded well to the change of pace, and got to have a little taste of hip hop amongst their Lotus experience. Here is a nice write up about the show from jamband.com, here is where you can download the night’s performance, and below is some video from the show as well.
