The hometown crowd came out in full force at Brooklyn Steel on Thursday night for Laura Pergolizzi, better known as LP. Lettered “LP” balloons, flags, and signs were strewn throughout the crowd in support of the singer-songwriter that hails from New York. Fans erupted in cheers and began throwing flowers on the stage when the petite Dylan-esque artist took the stage.
The rhythmic and melodic Noah Kahan opened for LP. Loneliness, fear and deep hurt surround the 21-year old’s music. But Kahan is not anything like his music. His charismatic and boyish charm seeps out of him when he is on stage. Last month, Kahan released his debut EP, Hurt Somebody via Republic Records and recently performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
LP began her set with a series of songs off her most recent LP, Lost on You. The anthemic “Strange” flowed seamlessly into the rocking, kiss-this track, “Other People.” Then came the uplifting and brazen, “Tight Rope,” where she belts “Up high in the middle of nowhere/ don’t know, but you’ll know when you get there/ walk slow and low on a tightrope/ hope it last but you know, you never know.” In the middle of the set, LP previewed new tracks like, “Girls Go Wild,” that will be released on her forthcoming album. LP closed with “Lost on You.”
After roaring applause, the songstress returned to the stage for an encore performance of the somber, “Muddy Waters,” “Someday” and her 2012 hit, “Into the Wild.” LP plays a handful of shows in the United States before bringing her tour to Russia in mid-March.
