Lights (Drag City) to embark on US tour with The Entrance Band


Lights are known for their raucous wild live shows that swirl with soft colors and night shapes brought to you by Sophia Knapp, Linnea Vedder and Alana Amram. Once you’ve started spinning their new record, Rites (Drag City), you’ll understand the feeling. Any band that mutates the powers of Jimi Hendrix, unicorns, Stevie Nicks, glowsticks, Prince, Indians and cowboys,Yoko Ono, red wine, Jem and Beyonce into their own smoothly flowing sound, they’re acting from the heart. They were born in rhythm, chanting their message — but with every live show Lights are passing into a more encompassing sense of what their music can be, a collage of the old and the new, where the American East meets the American West in a sexy fairytale world of magic, mirrors and white light.
