As soon as Leisure Cruise took the stage I could feel the smiles in the audience behind me reflecting the band’s. Their composition of space age outfits, psychedelic projections, and pulsing rhythms came together in a way that felt choreographed but never contrived. With everyone around me dancing as if their bodies knew nothing else, it felt like Leisure cruise was playing to the crowd’s steps as much as the music was dictating them. I imagine this is what a party on the moon would be like.
In a time where I feel like music has become a spectator sport, Leisure Cruise’s ability to close the gap between audience and artist is refreshing. If you want to see a show where watching and hearing turns into feeling, Leisure Cruise is it.
