Twilight on the Tavern Lawn to present Luminous Crush

Originally published in The Commons issue #415 (Wednesday, July 5, 2017). This story appeared on page B2.

Twilight Music continues its 15th annual Twilight On The Tavern Lawn series of summer concerts on Sunday, July 9, with dream pop quintet Luminous Crush.

Luminous Crush is a rock and pop band fronted by Laura Molinelli and Ben Campbell. Joined by Christian Heins (bass), Brad Waugaman (keyboard) and Paul Carroccio (drums), they form a quintet that focuses on original dreamlike pop and rock vignettes.

Waugaman, an accomplished videographer, provides an accompanying light show as well as performing on keys and vocals. Their music has been hailed as “fearless and original” by Burlington’s Seven Days.

The seven concert series continues every other Sunday through Aug. 20. All concerts begin at 6 p.m. in downtown Putney on the Putney Tavern lawn (bring a lawn chair or blanket) or at Next Stage at 15 Kimball Hill in case of rain.

The concerts are free to the public (donations are accepted) and food will be available. For more information, call 802-387-5772 or visit
