LINDSAY LOU RETURNS WITH THE FLATBELLYS,
AND BEARDED MEN CAN SAVE A BUCK
LINCOLN CITY – Those who need a good dose of “rootsgrass” are in luck: Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys are coming back to Lincoln City next Thursday, Jan. 30. And those men with chin hair are even luckier, still. In homage to Lindsay Lou’s four bearded bandmates, all guys with low-face hair will get $1 off the ticket price.
“We won’t get judgmental about it, though,” said Niki Price, director of the venue, the Lincoln City Cultural Center. “You don’t have to have a great big fuzzy beard, like dobro player Mark Lavengood. We give credit for trimmed face covers like the one worn by Josh Rilko (vocals and mandolin), or even a little chin spear like Spencer Cain, on upright bass. But if you’re absolutely clean-shaven like vocalist Lindsay Lou Rilko herself, well, you have to pay full price.”
The Jan. 30 show starts at 7 pm at the LCCC, 540 NE Hwy. 101 in Lincoln City. Tickets are $15 in advance and $17 at the door, on sale now at the box office (open 10 am to 4 pm every day except Tuesday), or by calling 541-994-9994. Visa and MasterCard are accepted.
Young “rootsgrass” band Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys, who wowed the LCCC crowd last February, has jumped into the forefront of today’s progressive roots music movement. Distinct vocals, tight harmonies, instrumental expertise, and creative arrangements are all essential characteristics of their sound. Instrumentally, they can turn on a dime, their arrangements showing a well-developed taste in music – based on bluegrass traditions but frequently dipping into swing jazz and popular song craft – and their sound is deftly guided by the clarion vocals of lead singer Lindsay Lou.
