Though they played Governor’s Ball in June and opened two sold-out shows for Two Door Cinema Club last week, it’s been over a year since Williamsburg’s St. Lucia has headlined a hometown show of its own. But on the heels of the band’s first LP, When the Night, Bowery Presents has just announced two new gigs: one at Music Hall of Williamsburg on January 17 and the other at Bowery Ballroom the next day.

St. Lucia recently invited Bedford + Bowery into the studio on South 11th Street where their debut album was recorded, and performed an acoustic version of their single “Elevate.” Afterward, we spoke to Jean-Philip Grobler about facing eviction from the studio and maybe spending more time in Los Angeles.
