LANY plays two sold out shows at The Troubadour

The Troubadour couldn’t get any dreamier than last week when LANY headlined the famed L.A. venue. The band, a trio full of Angelinos, star struck hundreds of girls as they performed two sold out nights in a row. Their performance May 2 left fans begging for more as the band serenaded a select few while embarking on a North American tour.

DSC_3224.JPGThe night began with opening act Odessa, a young singer/songwriter currently living in L.A. The sweet and charming singer played a short set full of honest songs. Her down-to-earth attitude and witty commentary in between songs was fun to watch, and her warmth and openness paired with beautiful music was well received by early attendees.

LANY sauntered on stage just a few minutes after 9 p.m. Their hour long set was filled with catchy pop songs and perfectly executed stage antics.

Lead singer Paul Jason Klein, with his long hair and unbuttoned shirt, sang passionately to his audience and knew exactly how to make fans swoon. His band mates Jake Goss (drums) and Les Priest (keys, Guitar, Vocals) were equally as comfortable on stage and performed with ease.

Although they’ve only been together for two years, LANY pulled together an entertaining set list of songs including their singles “Where the Hell Are My Friends” and “ILYSB,” both of which were met by fans singing along with Klein.

With songs such as “youarefire,” “Bad, Bad, Bad” and “Made in Hollywood,” LANY is all about making fans feel special. Throughout the night, Klein held the hands of those lucky enough to be in the front row and climbed on the speakers to sing to fans. His charismatic and charming demeanor washed over The Troubadour, and not one person was left without a smile on their face.DSC_3288.JPG

The whole night was a carefree endeavor filled with, singing, laughter and a few screaming fans. LANY did an excellent job at catering to their audience and making their performance enthusiastic and fun to watch – seeing a few grown men sing along to their set was proof enough that this young band has something special.

The night ended with a quick encore where even after playing a few more songs, fans chanted LANY’s name.

LANY is a dream pop band from L.A. Their synth filled music is upbeat, clever and great to sing along to.

The band’s name is an acronym for Los Angeles New York. Klein noted in an interview that the band wanted a four-letter name for aesthetic purposes and eventually came up with the name after thinking about the span from Los Angeles to New York.

Their single “Where the Hell Are My Friends” debuted March 2016 on Beats 1 with Zane Lowe.

LANY will continue their headlining tour through May after which they will appear at several festivals including Bonaroo, Firefly and Outside Lands. For more information about their music, visit their website.
