I love LaRoux! They have delectable dance songs and they are always fun to see in concert. I was fortunate enough to attend a very intimate last minute free gig at the Renaissance Hotel in New York on November 16, 2010. I mentioned the show in a previous post and it was excellent! In fact, I’d love it if LaRoux released an EP with the chilled out versions of their songs (fingers crossed!) Prior to hearing totally different versions of “In For The Kill,” “I’m Not Your Toy” and “Bulletproof,” I met LaRoux’ lead singer Elly Jackson. She was being pulled away by the people with her to not stop, but she made a point to stop and greet me! Love that! In addition to taking the above photo, she also signed 2 cd covers as well as a photo I took of her at her first New York gig! It was at that point that the people she was with paid me a compliment on the cool photo. Thanks again to Elly Jackson for being so cool and for making such great music. Really looking forward to LaRoux’ next album, which is supposed to be sonically different than their debut. Can’t wait!
