Kelly Lee Owens at The Sanctuary at Pico Union

words + photos by Joe Cortez

Welsh electronic music maker Kelly Lee Owens graced the hallowed halls of LA's Sanctuary at Pico Union, a repurposed church, for an appropriately ethereal night of ceaselessly hypnotic grooves and beats. Saturday night marked what would end up being the last night of her live dates in the States following a last minute cancellation of her San Diego date on Sunday night. The resulting LA show ultimately being one for the books as she dazzled the near capacity crowed with transfixing visuals and selections from her self-titled debut release (available now via Smalltown Supersound).
