POWER LACES, THE WEIRD KIDS, & LOTUS LYNN @9pm

LOTUS LYNN is a Mandolin Chick named Elizabeth. Third Generation Musician sharing her love of music with anyone willing to listen.

THE WEIRD KIDS is a Rock n’ Roll group from Portland, Oregon. The band members come from eclectic musical backgrounds, which provides a rich sound encompassing many genres. A focus on clever, relatable lyrics continues to be a cornerstone in the writing process. Drummer Josh Chouinard and vocalist Nick Roberts founded the group in late 2016 – guitarist Adam Brooker and bassist Austin Whittle came on board in 2017, eager to bring their ideas to the table.

THE WEIRD KIDS can most frequently be classified as an alternative rock group, but influences from hard rock, reggae, jazz, and funk continue to shape a new subset within the genre.

Former members of The Hooky’s and The Approach were long time friends in the music scene prior to forming the group POWER LACES.
Interesting enough adding an electronic feel with synthesizers, talk box and heaps of delay embellishes this new refreshing sound. Combining deep bass tones and edgy drum fills leave the group limitless. Forming in beautiful Tacoma Washington the group pushes forward with past experience and new outlooks of the music scene. Influences of artists include A Tribe Called Quest, Jurassic 5, Lettuce, The Motet, Giant Panda Guerrilla Dub Squad to name a few. Performing in such venues as The Nectar Lounge, White River Amphitheater, Temple Theatre, Cheney Stadium and much more POWER LACES strives to find diverse and dynamic atmospheres for their ever forward moving sound.
