This woman was truly on fire, the energy coming from her throat and her body was impressive and if she wanted to convince anyone present at the Satellite on Monday night that she was born to perform on stage, I am pretty sure she did succeed. Man, was she bold and acting like a wild animal released from its cage, screaming and spitting in your face during the whole set!

The band Queen Caveat was ending their Monday residency at the Satellite last night, and frontman Lauren Little gave everything she had, leaning at the edge of the stage, pushing her powerhouse vocals above the band’s rock-pop explosive anthems, sweating everything she could in her tiny Ramones tee and black leather pants. Their music was a force that rapidly filled up the room, already full with lots of people, but a force carried at arm’s length by Little’s strong chords and her sexy personality. I guess some people are born to be rock stars, this or they work very hard at it! In any case, Ben Epand on guitar, Will Weissman on bass, and Jesse Magnuson on drums were also present on stage building a very loud and well-oiled rocking machine, but nobody could detach their eyes from Lauren Little during the whole time, especially when she was taking some provocative pauses during her Duracell-energized long howls or shaking her body during her frenetic dance moves. If we need comparisons, she was kind of Courtney Love (on her very best days), or any kind of rock-woman that can put the stage on fire.

 

She was a photographer’ dream come true, as every one of her move was an Instagram classic, and with the help of her band, she was delivering an intravenous dose of adrenaline at each song, with bold or at least sexually charged lyrics, from what I could make of them. She even announced that a slower and tender song was about her ‘first time’, yeah this kind of first time, and she didn’t even apologize for the TMI-charged declaration. She then jumped in the middle of the crowd to get even closer to everyone, and far from slowing down, the next song they played was a Nine Inch Nails’ cover, ‘Closer’, whose printed lyrics on the floor, were exposing their rawness ‘I wanna fuck you like an animal/I wanna feel you from the inside’… Little rolled her back on the stage, legs apart, leaving everyone breathless. And apparently there’s nothing they (she) can’t do, as they also covered Rage Against the Machine and Michael Jackson in the past,… talk about eclectic!

Who are those people, I asked myself, they should open for Paramore, or someone like this! Not that I like Paramore, but you get my grip. Actually, they could break big soon, after releasing two EPs ‘Emptor’ and ‘Slap on the Wrist’ in 2012 and playing lots of famous clubs around Los Angeles such as the Mint and the Viper Room, after making a big impression at 2011-2012 Austin’s SXSW Festivals and at the 2011 Sunset Strip Music Festival, they sure have already produced an enormous buzz and are now ready for a large scene. They have even been featured in the 20/20 ABC News Special, ‘Sunset Boulevard’, covering the music on the Sunset strip, so let’s just say that entire careers have been built on far less than that.

Lauren Little singing ‘Closer’

At the top of being the mesmerizing frontwoman of the night by putting so much aggressive emotion and acrobatics in her performance, Lauren Little didn’t seem to take herself very seriously, something very refreshing in these days and age. At the end of the show, she said she was sad, it was indeed the last Monday of their June residency at the Satellite, hey, for a band digging the West side (the Strip), it was an East side adventure but probably not the last one, as we will hear soon about Queen Caveat’s sexy powers.
