Special Guest Bhi Bhiman will open the concert.
From a casually made video featuring the band gathered around a single mic, to selling out venues and planning an initial European tour, Lake Street Dive is pure pop music fun!
This Brooklyn-based band is a captivating indie-pop-swing foursome whose knockout lead singer Rachel Price “has the soulful howl of a young Etta James” (Daily News). The band, all graduates of the New England Conservatory of Music, has been together since 2005, but broke through seemingly overnight with a viral video of them covering the Jackson Five’s “I Want You Back” on a Boston street corner in 2013.
This event is sold out.

More about Lake Street Dive:
Lake Street Dive has been performing for nearly a decade after meeting as fellow students at the New England Conservatory in Boston. The band was hand-picked by Minneapolis trumpet/guitar player Mike Olson and named after an actual neighborhood of seedy bars in his hometown. Vocalist Rachael Price came from outside Nashville, Tennessee, stand-up bassist Bridget Kearney was an Iowa native, while drummer Mike Calabrese called Philadelphia home.
It took a casually made video featuring the band gathered around a single mic, performing a cover of Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back,” to catch the public’s attention—its YouTube views now hurtling past a million views. And just like that, Lake Street Dive went from playing for a small devoted following, to selling out venues and planning an initial European tour, with dates on several late-night TV shows in the offing.
