Lo-Fang at Off Broadway – April 21st, 2014

On Monday I shot my first show in almost a year at Off Broadway.  Eleven Productions brought in Lo-Fang whom sounded very familiar to me.  After arriving to the show I started talking to the audience and found out that the reason I had heard of this band before is because this was the second time I had photographed them.  Lo-Fang opened for Lorde at the Peabody back in March, and they actually appear to have a decent following amongst females in the age group of 16 – 24 years old.  This was the first time I had ever seen families at a show at Off Broadway, and the crowd was an intimate size that consisted of fans who are surprised that more people haven’t hopped onto the Lo-Fang train.  I will have to say I was very impressed by multi instrumentalist Matthew Hemerlein, who leads Lo-Fang and played a cello, violin, and guitar within the first 5 songs.  Matthew pulls a lot of weight in the band with as many instruments he plays and given the fact that he was only backed by two other members, a drummer and a guy on synths.  The other thing I found very interesting about this show was that the opening act was a comedian named Kate Berlant.  Kate, with a tundra of black curly hair that wildly animated her expressions, delivered her jokes in a very a dry, sarcastic, and witty style that just drew you in.  In all it was a good way to start off the week and a fine example of why you should branch out in St. Louis to experience the plethora of entertainment that our local clubs have to offer throughout the whole week, not just on Thursday – Saturday nights.

  1. That actually sounds awesome – the lead man playing all that! I’m not normally a live music kind of girl, (don’t throw anything at me 🙂 but this sounded totally worth it!
