LITTLE DRAGON @ THE OBSERVATORY
Photos and words by Leslie Kalohi
Although Little Dragon performed just a couple of months ago at FYF Fest, singer Yukimi Nagano revealed the band hasn’t been to Orange County since Costa Mesa’s Detroit Bar back in 2009. With a sold out show at The Observatory, the electro-pop group’s popularity has since soared to new heights, moving from indie cult favorites to main stage players. The Swedish band got the young bodies moving to the sensual beats of latest album, Nabuma Rubberband. Nagano was a force of nature to watch, bouncing about the stage in her DayGlo nails and sneakers, easily commanding everyone’s attention. The band’s breakthrough single off Nabuma Rubberband, “Klapp Klapp,” helped solidify the venue’s euphoric dance party.
