Rufus Du Sol in Concert
@Revention Music Center

Australian alternative dance group from Sydney, Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt make their way to Live Nation's Reventon Center in Bayou Place this weekend. They had to change their name from RÜFÜS to Rüfüs Du Sol when coming to America because RÜFÜS was already taken.

Last fall they recorded a live album and accompanying film in a secluded area of Joshua Tree as the sun went down over rock formations and light poles illuminated the desert night sky around them. "Live From Joshua Tree" will be released last Friday and the accompanying video can be seen on YouTube.

Directed by Alex George, the brother of keyboardist Jon George, the video features the band performing hits such as "Solace," "Underwater," Innerbloom" and more. There is no audience. The band members are on individual platforms and their equipment sits on clear stands.
