After meeting at the Berklee School of Music, Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig started singing together under the name Lucius. They were joined by guitarists Andrew Burri and Peter Lalish and drummer Dan Molad. They built up a loyal following with unison singing, well crafted songs, and retro fashions.
Things slowed down when Wolfe and Laessig broke away from the keyboards and shared a mic to sing Dusty Roads. The song highlights their amazing vocals and comes to a peak when they sing acapella.
Another highlight was their performance of Gone Insane which conveyed the feeling of.... wait for it....insanity. They sang to a crescendo while almost screaming. The song has hints of Florence and the Machine and Kate Bush. However, it is very much their own.

They eventually made their way back to the stage to perform Elvis Presley's Can't Help Falling in Love. The crowd was so overwhelmed that they gave each other a massive group hug. Never underestimate the power of the King.
Lucius ended with the high energy and percussion heavy (we need more cowbell) Genevieve.
See you at the next show. I will be the one not wearing a cape.
