ZHU @ The House of Blues

Last night we saw ZHU perform at the House of Blues in Boston. This was a really fun show. ZHU is an artist that’s a little difficult to pin down genre-wise; dance, R&B, electronic, house, and hip-hop would all be suitable classifiers. I was expecting his concert to be more on the R&B side of that spectrum, but it ended up being more on the dance/electronic side.  Nonetheless, the show was captivating.

While the type of music was amorphous, the concert had a consistent theme of a journey through the desert, which I think was really well executed. The theme was introduced by a few very short statements projected onto the wall, and aside from that it was very subtle.  The music itself carried the theme from there.  The desert aesthetic came through in the instruments and sounds more than the lyrics themselves, which was particularly impressive.

The lights at this show were at a different level than other concerts I’ve seen.  It seemed like they were using projectors, but I don’t know how they got the projected images to be so sharp and realistic.

The crowd at this show was very enthusiastic.  It was fun to be surrounded by so much energy.  I wish every show had this many people focused on the music.

Overall, this was a great time.  I’m excited to see and hear what ZHU does next.
