The Sonic Lunch series is one of the best summer traditions in the college town. Every Thursday at noon the local community gathers at Liberty Plaza to hear a local or national artist jam for about an hour. There is ice cream and food trucks and it's kid friendly. This year was kicked off by opener Phillip Michael Scales and then Laith Al-Saadi who recently made it to finals on the TV show The Voice which has the town chattering all over in excitement.
This week I had the opportunity to cover the "LP" show on my lunch break for Sound and Silence Media. The last time I saw LP was at Bryan Ferry at the FOX Theater where she opened. At that time I was covering the show for the Detroit Metro Times and did not know who she was. A year later she is now one of my favorite new artists and her songs are heard on my headset almost daily!
Great time and the crowd got into it and sang along- what a great way to let go of some workday stress and bond with the local community. Thanks Sonic Lunch. Album in gallery below:
