Lotus descended upon Philadelphia in grand fashion for both their New Years Eve and New Years Day shows at The Electric Factory. Of course the sold out crowd for New Years Eve 2010 was a glorious ocean of good vibes, but more than plenty of Lotus fans made their way on January 1st, 2011 to fill up the floor as well.
Brothers Past opened for Lotus on December 31, 2010 and brought the crowd to a feverish anticipation. Little did we all know that Tom Hamilton and Tom McKee would be returning to the stage to add vocals for a cover of Mott The Hoople’s “All The Young Dudes” along with Lotus.
Lotus played an intense show straight through into 2011 with a complete set list of:
Blacklight Sunflare (with C.R.E.A.M – Wu Tang)
Golden Ghost (with 99 Problems – Jay Z)
Countdown > Auld Lang Syne
Age of Inexperience
Plant Your Root
All the Young Dudes (Mott the Hoople cover)
Scrapple (with Lowrider – Cypress Hill)
Behind Midwest Storefronts
Greet the Mind
January 1st, 2011 had a lot to live up to after the previous night’s show. Sonic Spank opened and became a bonafide crowd pleaser almost instantly. Lotus then returned to the stage to end their New Years run with a bang!
