Terrible Lovelies: Electronic newbies in the neighborhood pub

Fans of bands like Phantogram, The Knife, and CHVRCHES are in luck this Friday night at Creston Brewery -  the city’s only black-owned brewery - welcomes the newly created act, the Terrible Lovelies.

Forming in late 2017 with members Shaneé Laurent, Marley Ferguson, and Joe Botwinski, the Terrible Lovelies offer a synth storm of electronic pop—a sound not really that big here since the Alexis (band) years.  

So here’s hoping that fans of this style of music will rise  again so that we can enjoy the beautiful theatricality that often follows such acts. 

In addition to the chance to catch a newish act in our community, this night welcomes Julio Gomez, a powerhouse of a performer who is a singer/songwriter and guitarist from Grand Rapids. 

Gomez is best known in our region as the frontman of  "I Believe in Julio" whose recent release "An Episodic Memory" ushered in the band’s signature folk/punk sound. For this special performance opening for the Terrible Lovelies, Julio Gomez will be joined on stage by long time collaborator Dan Fisher, as well as many special guests who will dive deep into his catalog of songs.

This will be a really good night for fans who are seeking an experience that is on the front edge of our city’s emerging music culture.
