Friday, August 12, 7:30 p.m. Lowell Music Festival. The Lone Bellow. We have 15 concert tickets to the Lowell Music Festival and the music group called The Lone Bellow. These 15 tickets are first come, first served. Come in, ask for Debra (or Adam or Kerstin) and we’ll give you up to two tickets. When they’re gone, they’re gone. The only catch is that when they announce our store’s name from the stage, you must cheer loudly!

A critic said,“Then Came the Morning, the second album by the Southern-born, Brooklyn-based indie-folk trio The Lone Bellow, opens with a crest of churchly piano, a patter of drums, and a fanfare of voices harmonizing like a sunrise. It’s a powerful introduction, enormous and overwhelming, as Zach Williams, Brian Elmquist, and Kanene Pipkin testify mightily to life’s great struggles and joys, heralding the morning that dispels the dark night. The Lone Bellow has created a sound that mixes folk, gospel, even heavy metal thunder, but the heart of the band is harmony: three voices united in a lone bellow.”
