Barboza's gold curtains + fluorescent pink, blue, green, and black lighting = nutso LSD trip* that made my eyes spin out of my head. But despite the weirdo colors everywhere, Nouela sounded great at the Block Party this evening. Formerly known as People Eating People, singer Nouela Johnston lead her new band through a catalog of songs that are more mischievous, more dramatic than her piano-pop past, but with just as many unforgettable hooks as ever.
Pink! Blue! Purple! Yellow! Blinding white! Ouch, my eyes!
*Dudes, I'm straight edge. I've never a drug in my life, let alone LSD. I have no idea what I'm talking about.
