Better Than: Staying at home, sobbing over the "West Coast" music vid.

Lana Del Rey, despite producing a steady output of mostly excellent recordings over the past few years, still somehow elicits a fairly polarizing response from people (read: Internet gnomes).

However, on Sunday night, it was as if we had walked into the Lana Del Rey fan club. The sold-out show at the Fillmore Miami Beach even attracted crowds that waited in lines that stretched around the block, just to get in to see the mercurial crooner.

Hundreds of girls in floral dresses and Lana's trademark flower-crowns gathered on this evening to worship at the altar of their soul-pop savior. Most told us that they had gotten their headwear from Forever 21. And predictably, the crowd was overwhelmingly dominated by teens and early 20-somethings.

Fans fiendishly chanted, begging Lana to grace the stage. The set was a tableaux arrangement with props taken from her various music videos: candles, fake California palm trees, a grand piano and a large screen.

Oddly, the palm trees lacked the surreal West Coast effect that Lana was likely going for in the context of a concert on South Beach.

When Mrs. Rey finally took the mic in a chic pastel pink gown, the crowd predictably went apeshit. These were her acolytes and they would chant every word of every song for the few songs of the show.
