Sometimes you CAN judge a book by its cover.  If the book in question is Matthew Hemerlein aka Lo-Fang, the ‘cover’ will be a musician that is so gorgeous that even if you end up hating his music (which I did not by the way, in fact, quite the opposite), you will have better visual candy than you would see from going to many art galleries.  Needless to say, Lo-Fang’s show at Bowery Ballroom on April 27, 2014 was great!  Before the night was over, Matthew played violin, cello, bass and guitar and I read on line that he also plays piano!  His music is moody and mellow (think Bon Iver meets Gotye) and he is not afraid to rework a beloved classic song or two and make them his own.  His take on Ginuwine’s “Pony” was really unexpected and great as was the song you are about to see – “You’re The One That I Want” from the movie Grease.  He turned the Olivia Newton-John/John Travolta duet into a gorgeous ballad that is sure to go viral.  Pop sensation Lorde enlisted Lo-Fang to open on her recent tour of the US and he performed on Good Morning America today.   The future is bright for Lo-Fang and I am looking forward to hearing more great things!   Thanks for a great show Matthew!

And now, here’s “You’re The One That I Want.”   Please share this with your friends and help make Lo-Fang a star!
