The Lights Out brought their parallel universe freak-out to The Sinclair.
So, this is it. I’m watching my last set at T.T. The Bear’s Place. There are a few more nights to go before they lock this place up for good, but I won’t be here. I can’t imagine having a better time than I did tonight with Ad Frank & The Fast Easy Women, Parlour Bells, Francine and Cujo. The Lights Out are the brilliant sparklers on top of the TT’s farewell cake.
The Lights Out aren’t afraid to take chances. This is a band that covered Queen this past Halloween and did “Bohemian Rhapsody” in its entirety. Stripping back their usual big rock aesthetic into a compelling semi-acoustic set probably seemed like a walk in the park after that. Good stuff at Radio last Friday…
Well, this was certainly one of the most ambitious sets I’ve seen all year. For their annual Halloween* bash at Church, The Lights Out decided to tackle the Queen catalog. Yes, they did “Bohemian Rhapsody.” All of “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Very impressive, gentlemen.
* Dubbed Hallo’Queen for this year’s event.
