La Roux's Show In L.A. Last Night: The Guy On Keyboards Was Quite Foxy

Above is a pic of La Roux's Elly Jackson (yanked with gratitude from the La Roux Blog) on the set of the video shoot for "Bulletproof," the U.K. synth-pop act's next single. Currently the band are #4 on the U.K. singles chart with "In For The Kill."

"Bulletproof" is super poptastic, and I know this because I caught La Roux doing a short set at The Roxy here in L.A. last night. What made the gig all the more enjoyable was scruffy-cute "Mikey" on keyboards. (Strangely, the official other half of La Roux, Ben Langmaid, was nowhere to be seen.)

Mikey's in all black on the far left in this pic also swiped from the groovy La Roux Blog:

Based on songs played last night like "Colourless Colour," "I'm Not Your Toy," "Fascination" and "Tigerlily," La Roux's Yaz(oo)-inspired album is gonna be heavily rotating in the car D'luv this summer, upon its June release.

Here's a clip of "Quicksand" from last night's show:

At the end of the set, Elly said they'd be back in the States in July.
