Lux Deluxe had a very specific goal for their 2nd album "It’s a Girl" on SpiritHouse Music. They wanted the album to reflect their combustible live performances. To get there, they spent the better part of two years honing their songs and their sound— three cousins who have been playing together for a decade, and two friends — into one distinct band identity that reflects the strengths they’ve been developing since joining forces in 2009 in Northampton. The band has clearly hit its stride, and at an enviable age: the oldest of them is just 22, and they play with rare self-assurance. For the New Year's Rock & Roll Circus, they will perform "It's A Girl" and then the classic Rolling Stones album "Some Girls" in its entirety at midnight followed by an anthemic encore of choice Bruce Sprinsteen songs with their special guest Frank Manzi.
