Lake Street Dive will be cruising through Charleston on Thursday, October 30th to perform at The Charleston Music Hall. Doors will open at 7 pm for the 8 pm show.
The band has been performing for nearly a decade after meeting as fellow students at the New England Conservatory in Boston. The band was hand picked by Minneapolis trumpet/guitar player Mike Olson and named after an actual neighborhood of seedy bars in his hometown. Vocalist Rachael Price came from outside Nashville, stand-up bassist Bridget Kearney was an Iowa native, while drummer Mike Calabrese called Philadelphia home.
It took a casually-made video featuring the band gathered around a single mic, performing a cover of Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back,” shot on a Brighton, Massachusetts street corner to grab the public’s attention - its YouTube views now hurtling past two million views. You can see the video below. Don't miss your chance to see the group Rolling Stone has called "the year's best new band."
