Headlights @ Iota, Arlington, VA - Feb 21, 2008 (Lexie Moreland)
Headlights @ Iota

First up at Mercury Lounge was the Evangelicals, a spooky poppy band not beneath slathering all their gear with glo paint and breaking out the blacklights. The highlight of this show occurred when the lead singer jumped onto the kick drum and steadied himself against the ceiling. He wasn't steady enough though, and he face-planted back onto the stage, knocking the mic stand into the audience and flipping on the floodlights. He finished the song from the bassist's microphone.

Headlights came on and played only songs off the new album, easing into a steady, pleasant groove..... [Impose MAgazine @ the February 24th Mercury Lounge show]
