8:00am, 7/5: Sonic Lunch is still planned for outdoors in Liberty Plaza. Stay tuned for updates.
Yes, there is a Sonic Lunch on Thursday, July 5. We're serving up a full menu of indie folk music for the holiday week with a double bill of Frontier Ruckus and Chris Bathgate.
Chris Bathgate is a prominent American Indie folk singer/songwriter in the Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor area. His signature country-tinged gothic folk has been perfectly honed in his latest critically acclaimed album Salt Year.
Frontier Ruckus is a literate dynamic folk-derived band from Detroit with many layers of complexity within their music. Below the obvious layer, many fans sensed an intangible element ingrained within the notes and lyrics that Frontier Ruckus, through some kind of rare ability, turned memories into melodies and transformed a from-the-inside-out examination of their native Michigan into a creaky back-porch storytelling session relevant well beyond the Great Lakes.
Join us on Thursday, July 5 from 11:45a to 1:30p in downtown Ann Arbor's Liberty Plaza.
