Reset for the Weekend with LEC Release Party
Saturday, Mar. 9
To call The LEC a really local band is certainly no disparagement: The "Lower Eastside Connection" is, in a lot of ways — from its moniker to its members to its music — about as pumping-heart-of-Erie as you're gonna find.
Busting out in 2011 with a lineup of players since turned stalwart in Erie's music scene (and always, by various turns, skilled in the game of amalgamating hip-hop and rock) the LEC has released three previous albums as its members have worked their ways from young "adults" into real grownups. Their lineup of Jonny Evans, Tony Facchiano, Chris Head, Dan Head, Pat Roche, and Adam Holquist has been honing their sound for years and it shows. Their work's scope continues to grow with them as they lean into their follow up to 2016's Whole Again for their newest LP, Reset.
The album's release party — and a party it will be, with a new video, opening support from Meadville-area roots-rockers Dirty Leaf, and closeout help from Buffalo-based reggae/fusionistas PLT — is sure to be a lively Saturday night of hip-as-hell music at the King's Rook, and one that a lot of people are sure to come together for. — Ryan Smith
