Lucid Nightmare

I could feel the music vibrate the floor as I swayed along to it with those around me. Blue and purple lights flashed in time with the beat. There was a bit of a mysterious haze that filled the club whenever they played.
  A fairly new band to the scene, Lucid Nightmare has grown into a favorite among the club and rave community. They play for various venues, but the late night crowd is their go-to audience. Their genre is a unique mix of metal, electronic, and similar sounds. They utilize lighting and visual effects during each performance via magical and technological means.  

Meet The Band Members

Lathai Palana:
The lead singer and founder of the band who also plays the electric keyboard / soundboard. He is a young adult elf who wanted to get into more experimental music. Lathai is very close to his crew members and treats them as family.  
Tuzen Velm:
The guitarist and secondary vocals. She is an adult half orc and Lathai's girlfriend. Tuzen met him at a music festival and helped him come up with the band idea after befriending each other. She owns and drives the hover bus they all travel in while on tour.  
Barnabas Stralers:
The drummer and "adopted" son of Lathai and Tuzen. He is a young adult human who met them when he was 18. Barnabas left his home for various personal reasons and was taken in by the founders after hearing he had been wandering with nowhere to go. They discovered his talent for rhythm and let him be their band's drummer since he showed interest.  
The bassist and close friend of Tuzen. She is an adult yuan-ti with the lower portion of a snake and torso of a human. Tuzen told her about their band idea and asked if she'd like to participate. Ssotsi wanted a change of pace in her life and agreed to join.  
Leiki Tyco:
The band's manager and effects specialist. They are a non binary, young adult tiefling who stumbled upon the band during their second year of playing. After attending some of their concerts, Leiki approached the band to ask if they'd need any assistance and showcased what they could offer. Lathai loved what he saw and after getting the other member's approval, hired Leiki onto the team.

Ooo, they sound like they would be really fun to see play live. I always love special effects. I love the diversity of the band members and how they are a family. :)

Thank you! This was a bit tricky to get at least a small article for. I'm a sucker for "found family" and can't help myself but to slap it in here and there. xP

Love the small details and the general idea. The year 911, the Fourth Dimension music, the band as an organisation.   How does it work? I mean the music. How does it interact with the audience in a way that creates these feelings?   Why is Leki being described as "they"? :D   Will you try to get a drawing/picture of the band playing? :D

Thank you~ Well, entertainment groups are listed in the org template and that's the one the prompt used as well.   This was a pretty basic article for me compared to what I usually write. I'm not sure I have the words to describe something like that just yet. This was meant to be a fun, quick write to fill the advent prompt. I might come back to it later~   Ah, Leki is non binary and uses they/them pronouns. I should add a lil' to that since I specified everyone else.
