La Roux Goes Glam Greaser at Mansion

Yeah, it wasn't exactly a "concert." A nightclub's got bottles to sell and a dance floor to fill, so La Roux's set last night at Mansion was typically short, just a few songs: "In for the Kill," "Bulletproof," and "I'm Not Your Toy."

Nevertheless, singer Elly Jackson rocked the 15 minutes she got. Dressed like a glam greaser in tight pants, a shoulder-padded leather jacket, and a fiery futuristic pompadour, she crooned with her eyes closed and danced through disco lights while her boy-girl backing band spun the synthy stuff.
