Pop-Up Parking Lot Show: Lazy Bird & Ophiocoma, ACP

Saturday August 6, 2022
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Creative, charismatic, and certainly funky — these are just a few of the words that describe the young and upcoming band known as Lazy Bird. Hailing from the quaint yet musically inclined city of Burlington, Vermont, Lazy Bird’s astounding ability to improvise leads to a completely different listening experience each performance. The band cut their teeth with dorm room jams at the University of Vermont led by guitarist Jackson Bower and Princeton-born Saxophonist Matt Cincotta. Shortly after, Lazy Bird found themselves traveling across New England to play with up and coming bands such as Dogs in a Pile and Six Fox Whiskey.

Doors open: 6pm Ophiocoma begins: 6:30pm

Tickets available now. Standing room only OR bring a lawn chair

Outdoor show; will be moved inside in the event of inclement weather.
