The Lamplight Club – feat. Lomelda + Robbie Thompson
05/11/2017 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm£7
Next up at the Lamplight Club, a name that you may not know but won’t want to miss, with one of the albums of 2017. Lomelda’s Hannah Read cut her teeth travelling the wide swaths of highway that crisscross her home state of Texas. Since forming the folk rock project as a high-schooler, Lomelda has led Read far from her small hometown of Silsbee. Those experiences, which she has documented on the upcoming Thx, are washed with a sense of cautious wonder. Highly recommended. (£7)
“As member of much-travelled collective The Buffalo Skinners, Robbie Thompson is one part of a whole who spend their time traversing folk, rock, blues and country with a Yorkshire grounding. In his solo work, however, he takes several steps back from the Skinners’ full-bodied, rumbling storytelling and instead uses songs to pick out moments, giving them room to breathe.”
