MSU Riley Center – Lake Street Dive
It can be difficult to limit Lake Street Dive to one genre. The group’s unmatched creative energy speaks for itself, pulling inspiration from folk, jazz, and bluegrass. Their critically acclaimed albums Side Pony and Free Yourself Up are alternative music staples, branded by the group’s kaleidoscopic sound. This sound, uniquely soulful and infused with rock and roll, has elevated the group to the top of the indie rock scene, with their hit single “Good Kisser” claiming a top five Americana radio spot in 2018. They’ve performed at Newport Folk Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and Toronto Jazz Festival and shared the stage with acts like Brandi Carlile and Sheryl Crow. Lake Street Dive’s signature groove has captivated audiences all over the globe.
Opening for Lake Street Dive is Chicago-born singer-songwriter, Monica Martin. Expect low-key pop songs featuring beautiful melodies with blue note whispers, influenced by her youth in rural Wisconsin, where she waited for Billie Holiday videos to load on back-country dial-up and made road trips to watch punk shows in Milwaukee.
