The Last Dinner Party brings their first US tour to New York


On November 2nd, the Bowery Ballroom in New York City served as the backdrop for an unforgettable evening of music as highly talented band The Last Dinner Party took the stage. Despite having just four songs released so far, they left the audience captivated and eagerly anticipating their debut album, Prelude to Ecstasy, slated for release on February 2nd.

MOTHERMARY, the NYC-based sister duo making retro-futuristic Art Pop, had the honor of opening the show. Their electrifying performance set the tone for the night, paving the way for a memorable musical journey.

As anticipation mounted in the intimate venue, The Last Dinner Party made a grand entrance. With the stage bathed in a moody, cinematic glow, the audience was immediately immersed in their world. The setlist, a well-thought-out selection of tracks, showcased the band’s depth and creativity.

The evening commenced with “Burn Alive,” an upbeat track that served as an intoxicating overture for the night’s proceedings. The band then delved into “Caesar on a TV” and “The Feminine Urge,” captivating the audience with their compelling melodies and lyrical depth.

Throughout the performance, the band members effortlessly switched between instruments, creating a dynamic and engaging stage presence. Keyboardist Aurora’s touching song “Gjuha,” which celebrates her Albanian heritage and language, was a poignant and unique moment that left a lasting impression.

As the night progressed, the audience was treated to the evocative “Portrait of a Dead Girl” and the anthemic “Big Dog,” both of which showcased the band’s songwriting prowess and artistic vision. “My Lady of Mercy” closed the main set on a high note, with singer Abigail Morris even entering the crowd to perform with the audience.

The audience was then treated to an encore, with “Godzilla” and “Nothing Matters” capping off the night in style. The highly talented group of women had the entire venue dancing, singing along, and cheering loudly as they gave their final bows.

The Last Dinner Party’s performance at Bowery Ballroom was nothing short of mesmerizing. Despite having only a handful of songs in their discography, they managed to captivate the entire audience with their artistry, leaving us eagerly awaiting their upcoming debut album. This band is definitely one to watch, as they are sure to blow up in the coming months.
