Sunday September 16th Blood Orange played to a sold out show at the Roseland Theatre. The ambiance of synth and neon purple pulled the fans from the balcony and the pit into a trance of guitars and falsetto. Dev Hynes impressed with the vocal range akin to Prince, and there were inspiring performances by members of the band. All around it was a display of community, from the crowd to the performers the air was tangible with happiness.

Stand out numbers were the 2016 hit ‘Best to You’ from the album Freetown Sound. ‘Hope’ and ‘Out of Your League’ (feat Steve Lacey) from the new album Negro Swan, and a personal favorite ‘You’re Not Good Enough’ from 2013’s Cupid Deluxe.
