Rachel Mason, is a multi-talented performance artist-musician who recently held her debut performance Enter Das Ram and premiered the new video for “Tigers in the Dark” during a live performance at Sunset Boulevard’s esteemed LTD Los Angeles. Amazingly, she pulled off this event and the screening of another new video in NYC via Red Bull in the same week.

In sync with Mason’s stunning vocal deliveries and wider performance, a number of other performers showed themselves to be an essential part of this art show – they are Haylee Nichele, Nora Quinn, Paris Hunter Paul, Chelsea Zeffiro, Linda Tabbouch, and Jeff Hassay. The latter co-composed this soundtrack together with Mason.

With faces painted and costumes galore among the performers (including Rachel Mason herself) a concert of intrigue began. It was full of effects like lanterns, artists climbing and conquering grids, haunting violins, and the coolest of soundtracks for such an event.

Creating a fantastical captivating atmosphere, this show was like none other I’ve seen in the past. It was cozy, intense, highly diverse and heartfelt. You could nearly touch all the people involved – they were that close, often walking among us spectators (or us walking past them) and the music was eloquently pervasive.

Rachel began by performing “Cancers,” followed by “Heart Explodes” (the track for which the new video was screened by Red Bull in NYC a few weeks back). Her live performance of the forthcoming single “Tigers in the Dark” was accompanied by a brilliant video projection by Matthew Spiegelman. “Heaven” was the final track of the performance, delivered acoustically with Jeff Hassay playing guitar. Towards the end, the legendary Rodney Bingenheimer, a.k.a. “Rodney on the Roq” walked in on the set.

 The festivities culminated with a DJ set by Rodney, who is one most famous DJs in the history of rock music, known to many persons living through the 70s and 80s, and those who still follow his popular radio show through to this day. It seems fitting that Rodney would be taking part in this event, considering that this Sunset Boulevard gallery recreated the legendary Rodney Bingenheimer’s English Disco, which was incorporated into this performance.

Anyone in Los Angeles can chalk July 7 into their calendars as Rachel Mason headlines Los Angeles’ Club Los Globos with support from The Classical, Be Quiet, and Bible Study. This show once again features artists Haylee Nichele, Linda Tabbouch, and Chelsea Zeffiro. Doors open at 7:30pm and the show begins at 8pm. 19+ show, $7 cover.
