La Luz @ Bowery Ballroom 8/29/2015
La Luz usually do a “Soul Train” at shows, dividing the crowd down the middle and have people dance their way down the middle towards the stage. For their biggest NYC show yet, Saturday night (8/29) headlining Bowery Ballroom, they tried to coordinate a “surf train,” where fans crowd surfed their way to the stage. It was a little bit awkward — this crowd was definitely more the dancing kind than crowdsurfers — but a funny moment in a fun night. La Luz don’t rock the boat with their traditional surf rock style, but they show how good it can still be, and it’s hard not to dance (at least a little) at one of their shows. They are good.
The show also featured EZTV and La Luz’s current tourmates and single-splitters, Scully. La Luz are still in NYC and are playing a surprise show tonight (8/30) at Silent Barn with Scully, BOYTOY and Will Sprott on the bill as well. $8 at the door.
