Ticket Giveaway and Concert Preview: Lowry with Velcro Shoes at Club Cafe - 9.16.11


Indie rock band Lowry will be performing this Friday, 9/16 at Club Cafe. This is a late show with doors at 10p and show beginning at 10:30. We are giving away a pair of tickets to the show. Simply email us at pghmusicreport@gmail.com

The Weight Of Light by Lowry

Lowry are a Brooklyn based band with members hailing from around the world including New Zealand, Australia and Canada. Lead man Alex Lowry has helped create 3 albums since 2005 including Awful Joy, Love is Dead (2008) and this year's Emporia. Alex considers these a trilogy. A few things about the lyrics from Alex: "They're mostly about people, love, true stories mixed with things I've seen, cosmic stuff and some subversive stuff. I'm a ufologist and also have a very keen interest in the political realm (as it relates to our apparent aloneness in the Universe). I'm also a big Christopher Hitchens fan and I've spent time with Noam Chomsky in Boston. We mostly talked about Universal Grammar as opposed to civil rights violations in some small countries. I'm an atheist and a humanist."

Those That Dance by Lowry

Also appearing will be Velcro Shoes who I consider one of the best local bands. I will be posting a spotlight on them later this month.

Again, show begins at 10:30p with tickets only costing $7. Good way to spend a Friday night.
