An Unforgettable Evening of Movin’ and Groovin’ with Lotus - Mishawaka

An Unforgettable Evening of Movin’ and Groovin’ with Lotus

This past weekend, the four-piece Jamtronica band Lotus graced us with an impeccable performance for their annual visit to The Mishawaka Amphitheatre. For the fourth and final night of their Colorado run, Lotus Family and jam band enthusiasts gathered in the Poudre Canyon, dressed in groovy and psychedelic attire, ready for a night filled with good vibes and lots of dancing.

As they kicked off their first set of the night, Lotus started with the super funky crowd favorite “Stranger Danger.” They followed it up with their latest single, “Watching the Distant Storm,” and coincidentally, rain began to fall from the sky as the band delighted fans with retro synth layers, cut-up vocal samples, and groovy guitar riffs.

Lotus surprised fans by performing a rare rendition of their song “Harps.” Even as the rain continued to fall, the energy of the crowd remained undiminished. Undeterred by the weather, the Lotus Family continued to dance and revel in the psychedelic tunes. Their smiles, a testament to their unwavering enthusiasm, lit up the night. 

After the band rounded off the first set with the energetic and jammy “Age of Inexperience,” fans eagerly awaited the second set to follow.

As the rain cleared up in the canyon, Lotus took the stage once more, beginning with “In the Shadow of the Mountain,” another song from their upcoming studio album “How to Dream in Color,” set to release next month.

Lotus continued with an especially rhythmic and upbeat second set, captivating fans with a song cycle that included “Flower Sermon,” along with fan favorites such as “Umbilical Moonset” and “Plant Your Root.” They also performed a housey cover of Fred again..’s “Baby Again…” There wasn’t a single person in the crowd who wasn’t moving and grooving along to the irresistibly danceable tune.

The venue was surrounded by bubbles and bright lights reflecting off the disco ball as Lotus ended the night with a lively and carefree encore of “Sunrain.” The vibes were truly unmatched, leaving us with yet another unforgettable night of music at The Mishawaka.
