Florence + the Machine at Terminal 5, 11/2

Cloaked in an ethereal ivory costume and her trademark red hair, Florence Welch flitted onstage Tuesday night for the second of her 2 sold-out shows at Terminal 5. Thanks to a recent performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, the British singer and her band have leapt into the mainstream stratosphere, mostly thanks to Julia Roberts eating gelato to the tune of "Dog Days are Over" in Eat Pray Love. Wielding a single drumstick like a fairy nymph gone mad, Welch bounded and skipped across the stage, imparting her energy to the crowd on anthemic, gospel-tinged songs like "Raise It Up (Rabbit Heart)" and "Drumming Song." Her performance of the new-ish "Heavy in Your Arms" from the Twilight soundtrack reminded, via its delicate anguish, that a new Florence album is tenderly overdue. - jm
