Anyone who's been to The Troubadour understands that there's no bad seat in the house.  With a capacity of about 400, any performance transforms into one intimate show which is exactly what happened last Tuesday when Foxes (aka: Louisa Rose Allen) played at the packed venue.  It was so intimate, she even poured and shared shots of vodka with her fans in the front row.  I forget whether this was before or after she started climbing the lighting rigs on both sides of the stage hanging precariously above the crowd.  

With powerful and soulful vocals, Foxes showcased her electro-dance songs to the many who showed up who probably got introduced to Foxes from her featured vocals on the song "Clarity" by Zedd since its debut on Billboard's 200 charts last year.  She closed out her set with "Clarity" by bringing out singer/songwriter Matthew Koma to duet with her.  That song was also covered on Fox's "Glee."  

But it's her song "Youth" off her new EP, of the same name, that is getting Foxes noticed and drew the loudest reception from the crowd.  And it's her loyal and dedicated fanbase that's helped her  generated a lot of buzz lately from music tastemakers and mainstream media that, this week, "Youth" topped Billboard's Dance Club Song chart. Next year, her highly anticipated full-length album Glorious will be released in March.
