Little Boots @ Studio B in Brooklyn, NYC – pics

Little Boots strolled onto the stage at Studio B just before 1:30 am in a hooded black dress to an enthusiastic welcome from the Brooklyn crowd that had patiently awaited her appearance (2/6). While her signature Tenori-On was lit up on a stand next to her, she explained that it was suffering from technical difficulties and would not be used. She proceeded to sing, dance, play tambourine and keyboards throughout a playful 30-minute set of throbbing electro-pop. Backed by impressive beats from her drummer and keyboardist, she exuded confidence and sass throughout the night even getting on the crowd's case at one point for not dancing as hard as their London counterparts. While her keyboard playing and lyrics ("I'm gonna take you home tonight, I'm gonna make you feel alright") leave something to be desired, her songs' constant hooks made it clear that she is poised for mainstream success. - Noah
