Florence + the Machine released their debut album, Lungs, in the summer of 2009. Immediately the album rose to the top of the charts in the UK and topped out at number 2 in ireland. When released in the United States, Lungs ultimately climbed to the top of the charts. Interestingly enough, lead singer Florence Welch got a lot of material for her album from a recent breakup with her boyfriend. Sounds familiar! British singer Adele has recently found a lot of success thanks to the album she wrote after suffering a devastating breakup with her boyfriend.
Between numerous television appearances and music featured on soundtracks including the Twilight soundtrack, Florence + the Machine is hot right now in the United States. I was actually surprised to hear that the Rave had secured the band and not the Pabst. Usually I'd expect the Pabst to book an act like Florence + the Machine. It's been awhile since I've been to a show at the Rave, but the Eagles Ballroom is spacious, perfect for the number of people who undoubtedly be in attendance.
