We were so grateful to be able to get some Lucius time, as their Boise show took place the same day they had learned about several Grammy Nominations the same day! Lucius has been touring this year in support of their new excellent album Second Nature … their first album in 6 years!
Lucius has done much touring with Roger Waters in the past, and this year with Brandi Carlile. They talked about the magic of “Joni Jams,” and how Paul McCartney opened the back door for them at one event!
We met them in the El Korah green room after the sound check party for an interview, you’ll find that soon at our “10 Minutes With Tim” podcasts link at riverboise.com. Their pink room had some great old wallpaper, furniture, and Egyptian decor.
There was makeup all along the large mirror. I caught a glimpse of their open wardrobe case, it was shiny and full of bling!
After the sound check, they opened up a Q&A forum to all winners and VIP guests. They talked about many of their favorite movies and TV shows, and admitted to binging Long Island Medium Theresa Caputo and admitted to crying to it. One of the winners joked, “She told us you were coming!” They love Married at First Sight, and are obsessed with Cult Documentaries like : Holy Hell, Eat Sweet, Pray & Obey, The Jinx, The Vow, The Staircase. They watch Handmaid’s Tale, but like many of us, have to take breaks as it’s hard to watch.
Abraham Alexander opened the show and did a great set. He did a wonderful cover of “Wicked Game.” The Lucius concert was magical. The sound was great, and not too loud. At one point Lucius had everyone sit on the floor in a circle, and they performed in the middle off stage. At one point you could hear a pin drop. Lucius has never played Treefort, but they’ve heard a lot about it.
If you’re going to any Brandi Carlile shows at The Gorge next June, Lucius will be performing with her again there!
