Duluth Does Low
Dozens of local Duluth bands and musicians are coming together this week to play cover versions of their favorite songs by the legendary Duluth band, Low. The proceeds for the event will benefit the Music Resource Center, an after school music program in Duluth. Read the Lake Voice article about the Music Resource Center here.
Mayor Don Ness will be the emcee for the evening.
Low is a Duluth based band that has been a staple in indie-music for the last two decades. The band formed back in 1993, and has since released around 10 albums on various labels including Vernon Yard, Kranky, and most recently with Sub Pop.
They are well known throughout the world, frequently touring Europe, where a good majority of their fans are. Robert Plant, of Led Zeppelin fame, covered two Low songs on his 2010 album, Band of Joy.
Plant probably won’t be at Sacred Heart on Thursday, but here are some of the talented acts that will be taking the stage to share their love of Low:
Sing! A Women's Chorus, Tangier 57, Mary Bue, Toby Thomas Churchill, Cars and Trucks, The Accellerati, Snobarn, Hattie Peterson, Southwire, Manheat, Haley Bonar, Amy Abts, plus more.
Tickets are available beforehand at the Electric Fetus downtown. They’re $10 in advance, and $15 at the door.
To give you an idea of who's going to be there, here are a bunch of videos from the musicians on the bill.
