Local Natives @ The Hollywood Forever Masonic Lodge

1 Mins read

Local Natives is closing out their sold out three night residency tonight at the historic Hollywood Forever Masonic Lodge! Every night, they’ve played a unique setlist, featuring both old and new songs. This makes each night so special, and we wish we could’ve been there for all three!!

The Masonic Lodge is eccentrically located within the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. You have to walk past gravestones and climb stairs to get to the venue. The eerie atmosphere pumps up the adrenaline and sets the vibes right for an intimate, spirited experience in the 150 cap room.

On night one, with no opening set, Local Natives wasted no time and walked right through the crowd to get up on stage. Known for bringing relentless energy to every live performance, this indie rock band lived up to expectations.

The crowd radiated with energy as they proudly sang lyrics from some of Local Natives oldest songs. There were even a few cuts that Lead Singer, Taylor Rice, claimed they had never played live before. The chemistry between each of the 5 members breeds of deep friendship, masterful talent and artfully evocative minds.

With introspective lyrics and complex harmonies, each Local Natives song compels the listener to be present in the moment and dive deep into the supernatural power of live music. Our personal favorites from the night were Sticky Thread, Shapeshifter, and Black Balloons.

Black Balloons
Sticky Thread
Fountain of Youth
Right Down The Line
Everything All At Once 
Desert Snow

Past Lives

When Am I Gonna Lose You?


Wide Eyes 
Who Knows, Who Cares

Closing the night with an acoustic 3 song encore, you could feel the gratitude booming off of them— their gratitude for their art and for the privilege of playing it live to their fans and friends in their home town.

We hope to see Local Natives again soon!
