CSS wrap up US tour with sold-out LA show

L7 frontwoman joins the Brazilians on stage

CSS were joined on-stage by L7 frontwoman Donita Sparks during their sold-out show at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles last night (June 10), wrapping up their tour of the US.

Toward the end of their set, the Brazilians played a cover of L7‘s 1992 hit, ‘Pretend We’re Dead’, which featured Sparks dueting with Lovefoxx.

The typically energetic Brazilians worked the capacity crowd into a dance frenzy during their hour-long set, playing a few new songs as well as crowd-pleasers from their self-titled debut including ‘Music Is My Hot Hot Sex’ and ‘Alcohol’.


Clad in a sparkling rainbow body suit, Lovefoxx body-surfed and threw glitter on the crowd throughout the evening, while her bandmates blew bubbles and tossed balloons around.

“I had no idea the show would be so big like this,” Lovefoxx confessed to the audience, which included Fab Moretti of The Strokes and Har Mar Superstar.

She later added, “LA, this is the best show we’ve ever played in the USA!” and the crowd erupted.

CSS ended the night with a three-song encore, during which Lovefoxx sucked helium from a balloon to sing ‘I Wanna Be Your J-Lo’. They wrapped up the night with an extended version of ‘Let’s Make Love And Listen To Death From Above’.

The band are set to play several festivals this summer, including Glastonbury on June 23.
