Luminous Crush plays live on Sunday


Local dream pop and rock quintet Luminous Crush will be in concert at Earth Sky Time Farm in Manchester Center on Sunday, Aug. 21 from 6 - 8 p.m. Luminous Crush members Ben Campbell and Laura Molinelli are just as at home with acoustic guitars and mandolins as they are with drum kits and amplifiers. Sweet, soaring harmonies shimmer as they perform original dream pop and rock tunes.

Campbell has collaborated with a number of Vermont's musical luminaries, including Anaïs Mitchell, Michael Chorney and Caleb Elder. He has been praised by Dan Bolles, music editor at Seven Days, as "insatiably curious and wildly multifaceted."

Molinelli has been a part of the New York and New England music scene for the past 15 years. She has shared the stage with Lucinda Williams, Dar Williams, The Band, NRBQ, The Samples, Rebecca Hall, Lou Gramm (lead singer for Foreigner) and "The Legendary Lead Singers of the Temptations".

Luminous Crush recently shared the stage with Amy Helm, opening for her band at the Paramount Theater in Rutland. Their first album was produced along with Nashville songwriter and producer Felix McTeigue, and their newest LP is fully self-produced and will be available Sept. 17.

They are joined by Christian Heins on bass, Adam Barker on drums and Joshua Moore on keyboard.

Tickets are $10 at the door.

Farm baked pizza and beverages will be available for sale.
