Sound Bathing With Sigur Ros and Their Lord Jones Edibles
publish date: 2017-04-20
The night may have marked the beginning of a new form of legally enhanced live experiences.
Sigur Ros brought the goods, literally.
First and foremost the Icelandic trio gave an indisputably fantastic performance with loops and samples and lead singer Jonsi's sublime and processed vocals enhancing a dynamic set earlier this week (April 18) within the historic theatre at Neuehouse, a private members club in the center of Hollywood.
Here, surrounding the sound booth, were roughly 200 people strewn about on pillows, day beds and rugs laying prone beneath a transfixing light sculpture called a "Sólblossi" (Icelandic for "Solar Flare") designed by Juan Azulay that seemed like a pulsating heart with sinewy tentacles. And then there were the three nearly-naked waifish male dancers slinking about with candles. But what really brought the night together is something else entirely: edibles.
Thank you, oh Lord! Or rather specifically Lord Jones, the company that collaborated with Sigur Ros to create its limited-edition Wild Sigurberry cannabis-infused gumdrops that fueled this evening. The newly launched product was offered to the show's attendees in varying potencies ranging from 5mg of THC for those who wanted a high, or the more medicinal 5:1 CBD-infused candy with a hint of THC, which provides a more relaxing and lucid experience.
