With thuds of bass rattling the floor of The Echo from another show below at The Echoplex, Moses Sumney's delicate melodies were still able to envelope the people in front of him.

TAMARA YAJIA: LIFE IS WONDERFUL

Fast forward a few decades and Yajia finds herself in Los Angeles, working for The Bangles, fronting a band called Ellipses, and suddenly touted as "one of the funniest women on Twitter."

Hips were shaking and hands were clapping to songs like the funky “Fake Future” and the soulful melodies of “Love.” Stone gave some of his love back by hugging several lucky fans up in front while everyone in the room sang along to “Million.” He closed out the set with the soul inspiring song “Voodoo.”
