Lotus returned to beautiful Nelson Ledges Quarry Park in Ohio to play Summerdance V and we were there to get some photos and videos of the action. Having not played Summerdance the previous year, many Lotus faithfuls were anxious to see what the boys had to bring to the table. It was a gorgeous weekend on the ledges; patrons...
Check out photos from STS9's epic show at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City this past weekend.

SETLIST: Roseland Ballroom NYC 4/20/13 Set 1: Bigs, Simulator, Spottieottie*, Shock Doctrine*, ABCees*, Blu Mood, Vapors, Vibyl, Hidden Hand,...
Photos by: Ross Citrin / Words by: Steve Ledgers Lotus’ Richmond run at the National was a total smack in the face, a chilling epiphany, and I blame the second night for being the arbiter of truth. It struck me dumb, shook my core, and then softly rolled over my heart. But that’s the thing we fans search and live...
Writer: Steve Ledgers / Photographer: Ross Citrin "Full speed ahead," as the saying goes. Lotus kicked off their winter tour with explosions in the sky (not the band), and many tricks up their sleeves. It’s hard for me to conceptualize how a band can take a small vacation and then transition back into the game as seamless as they...
Hitting all five nights of the Lotus NYE run last week seemed distant even up until the last second, but soon became anticipation became reality. Starting out in Chicago (the city I grew up in) then flying to Pittsburgh and then driving to Baltimore to catch the shows was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Filled...
Lotus returned to Philly for one last massive 2012 hometown show, bringing a tasty couple of sets to the ears of a packed E-Factory. Getting the warehouse party moving with a delicious, jazz-induced 14 minute "Flower Sermon", a fan favorite and perfect tune to get people in the proper state of mind for what was to come.  The show was...
STS9 brought light to a troubled NYC in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. New Yorkers were excited and ready to get their minds off waiting in two hour gas lines and cleaning up flooded wreckage by getting down to a magnificent two night run of STS9 in Time Square. Check out the photo gallery and "Breathe In" video below....
STS9 hit Philly hard for Halloween bringing the spooky vibes to the Tower Theater. They opened the show with Michael Jackson's "Thriller" setting the mood extra right for the occasion. Shortly after they surprised the crowd with "2001 Space Odyssey" theme jam. What an incredible night; check out my photos and some video clips after the jump! SETLIST: 10/31/2012...
The Disco Biscuits straight-up crushed the city of Philadelphia for two nights earlier this month known as City Bisco, leaving people and faces shredded and melted to pieces. The extraordinary, beautiful, amazing Mann Center in downtown Philly played host, and the turnout was amazing. I met people from all parts of the country who flew in to...
Lotus returned to Buffalo for a 2-night run at the Town Ballroom, throwing down those trademark sexy ass instrumental post-rock and electronic dance grooves. No matter what the venue, the energetic joy and catharsis of a Lotus show is an infectious feeling and an unforgettable experience. Yet again this month I was so fortunate to catch these professionals in...
