It was a sold-out Valentine Special at The State Room with amazing performances by Lucius and opening band You Won’t.  Love was definitely in the air when both these bands got on stage and poured their soul out for their Salt Lake City fans.  An encore performance followed when Lucius jumped off the stage and performed in the audience. Talk about being right next to the action. Happy Valentine’s to all!
