LAist @ Sundance 2011: Florence + The Machine At Bing Bar, 01/22/11
Bing Bar banked another standout performance by a 2011 Grammy nominee on Saturday night with female firecracker songstress Florence + The Machine. Hundreds of people waited in the freezing cold to be in the place to be and to catch the red-haired singer in a space no bigger the Echo. Florence Welch's vocals starred and soared backed only by a harp and an acoustic guitar during the 9-song set, which featured a cover of the Cold War Kids' "Hospital Beds," and closed with crowd favorite "Dog Days Are Over."
