Elephant Revival / Lucius / Andrea Belanger at Cafe 939
June 23 - June 20, 2011
Berklee guitar and songwriting student Andrea Belanger exploded onto the scene when she and her six all-Berklee bandmates won a coveted performance slot at the 10th annual Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, beating thousands of other entrants for the chance to perform for the crowd of over 80,000. Fresh from her successful festival experience, Belanger is giving Boston a taste of what she calls her "introspective, storytelling folk songs" with an acoustic set at Cafe 939, opening for Elephant Revival and Lucius. Young in age and conception, Elephant Revival carries a fresh sense of creativity and inspiration that is felt by people of every generation. The band recently signed with Chad Stoke's (Dispatch/State Radio) label "Ruff Shod Records." New York Times says, "luscious, luminous, lifting lullabies" to describe the songstress duo lucius, fronted by Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig. The band is currently in the studio finishing their sophomore record with illustrious producer, Tony Berg (of Beck and Amy Mann fame) and Dan Molad (Elizabeth & the Catapult), which is due this summer.
