Elliot Root, Shakey Graves, and Lord Huron graced the stage on the night of Thursday, August 20th, the first night of Live On the Green 2015.

As can only be expected in Music City, a crowd of thousands showed out at the first of six shows in Lightning 100’s annual free concert series held in Public Square Park.

Up first was local band, Elliot Root. Contrary to first assumptions, Elliot Root a band comprised of five people.

“We would like for people to know that music is this other worldly thing, but it’s also really just people doing the best they can!” laughed Elliot Root front-man, Scott Krueger. “We want to be as honest as possible in our music, and for our fans to be just as honest with us and themselves when they listen.”

Inspired by punk, R&B, and the inspirational writings of the Persian poet, Rumi, Krueger aims to write romantically and with the same sense of mysticism.

Lord Huron – Time To Run

Lord Huron captivates listeners with the perfect blend of small-town America songwriting with all of the polish of an LA based band. Their Michigan born front man, Ben Schneider, although young, delivers well-developed lyrics and melodies that are reminiscent of a veteran songwriter. After a handful of well-received EPs, their new single, “Time to Run”, is a fun, summer song about escaping to the west coast in pursuit of a desirable young woman. Joined by members Mark Berry, Miguel Briseño, Tom Renaud, and Karl Kerfoot, Lord Huron is currently deep in the midst of an international headlining tour in support of their new album Lonesome Dreams. For such a young band, Lord Huron is showing extreme promise and has the musical chops to back them up.


Lord Huron…

New obsession… The Record “Lonesome Dreams” is so good.
