US fans of Rod Thomas aka Bright Light Bright Light got a special treat at his show on April 5, 2013 at Joe’s Pub in New York as he performed with a full band. Rod’s played here a few times with just himself and a piano, and those shows were great as they really focused on his amazing voice, but hearing his songs with their delicious dance beats is the proper way these songs are meant to be heard.
Backed with a drummer, a keyboard player and 3 background vocalists, Bright Light Bright Light’s hour long show featured his signature dance floor break up/love songs “Waiting For The Feeling,” “Feel It” and my favorite, “Love Part II.” In between songs, he mentioned how happy he was to be playing for us. While his lyrics deal sometimes with heartbreak, there was nothing but love at Joe’s Pub.
For the song “Cry at Films,” Del Marquis of Scissor Sisters sang guest vocals as he does on the album version. Rumour has it that Bright Light Bright Light has relocated to New York, which means we can expect many more performances to come, so make sure you stay connected. Thanks for a great night BLBL!
