There's nothing I like better than some bling and a striped pant suit.

No, I'm not talking about a pimp, this is Elly Jackson!

La Roux, made up of Elly Jackson, and Ben Langmaid, is just what the pop world needs in these trying times. Hailing from Brixton, England, La Roux opened for Lily Allen last march during her tour and even headlined the Samsung NME Radar Tour 2009. The duo performed at the Highline Ballroom last Monday the 26th and gave the New York audience a little taste of what UK top charting sounds like. Adorned in their finest wear, La Roux performed songs that included "Bulletproof" (hello, empowering shower song) and "In for the Kill." "Bulletproof" made most of the audience jump for excitement and many a drink was spilled. Though La Roux is always adorned in the finest of stage wear, her presence tends to border on awkward. Despite this, the overall performance was still extremely eye catching and well worth the wait.







Jackson, whose vocals could tend to border on shaky, managed to stay strong throughout the performance despite health issues. Sadly, no encore was in the cards for the Highline crowd due to Jackson's state along with the news that a few shows were going to be canceled. But that doesn't mean you can't check out her album! La Roux, was released back in the summer on June 29th, and went to number 2 on the UK charts and number 8 in Canada. Some awesome tracks include "In For The Kill," "Quicksand," and "Bulletproof."
