Tonight Sam and I ended our localchella series with Bat for Lashes at the Fonda Theater in Hollywood. At first, I was hesitant on what the night would hold, as I was almost 100% sure Sam wouldn't be down with this dark dream pop vibe but earlier today he surprised me via email with this video below.

If you guessed bikes, you get a gold star. Add in some masks that are reminiscent of Donnie Darko and you have a winner for sparking anyone's curiosity.
Natasha Khan, the female vocalist for the band, is a master at that. Her enchantment is cast not only by her hypnotic voice but her adorable attitude just sucks you in.

Watch Lilies here.
All Your Gold
Crowd favorite tonight, from the song, Laura
