German psychedelia/chillwave mastermind, Roosevelt, gave his first show in North America at The Echo (Los Angeles) with perfect execution – and we mean it literally. We’ve seen musicians loose their shit or experience ADD from the crowd’s comments, but Roosevelt was literally impermeable to everything. Someone yelled him to take his shirt off, but he didn’t show any hint of emotion. He didn’t even drink water. He was seriously nerding out in the moment, invested in hitting all the chords and buttons to give you the perfect songasms…Roosevelt is Marius Lauber offstage and Superhuman onstage:
