Lawrence will host three indie acts for a drive-in concert this weekend

Miss going to concerts? This weekend the Lawrence Art Center and Explore Lawrence are putting on a socially distanced event at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. 

Three local favorites will be performing at the drive-in concert: Elexa Dawson, CS Luxem and LK Ultra. 

Elexa aims for a restorative and soothing experience through her community-centered music off of her debut album, Music is MedicineHer website states that Elexa’s music is based on “her Potawatomi and Oklahoma heritage nature, family, love and loss, all with a hopeful and heartfelt tone.”

Solo artist and collaborator CS Luxem is sure to supply powerful feelings at the event with his music that blends together elements of soul, pop, folk, indie and psychedelia. The Kansas resident has performed across the United States and Europe. 

LK Ultra‘s music conveys their sincerity and unadulterated feelings. They are self-described as “10% band, 40% activist, 50% best friends.” The band’s punk activism and welcoming attitude is the perfect way to end the summer of what has been a wild year.

If you don’t want to rock out in your car, there will also be limited lawn seating available. When you arrive, you’ll be asked if you prefer to stay in your car or want to enjoy the concert in designated areas on the grass. All lawn seating is socially distanced and those who are listening outside are encouraged to wear masks for everyone’s safety. 

Gates open at 6:30 pm and the show will begin at 7 pm and tickets are $20 per car. Since seating is limited, make sure you arrive early to get the spot you want. All tickets must be purchased before the event and are available on the Lawrence Art Center’s website.
