NLB at Lizard Lounge


Three bands hit the Lizard on Thursday, August 14, each offering their own unique take on rock music.

Aloud starts off the night. A four piece indie rock band that The Boston Phoenix nominated for "Best Indie/Powerpop Act" in 2012. In the same year, the Deli Magazine listed Aloud as one of the "Best Emerging Bands."

Nate Leavitt, long known for his fierce guitar work with bands like Parlour Bells and Old Jack, then takes over with his introspective songwriting and excellent musicianship.

And finally Sarah Rabdau and the Self Employed Assassins finish out the night with their hard to categorize art rock and pop sound.

All in all a not-to-be-missed night at The Lizard Lounge!
