SATURDAY, JUNE 2 at 6:00 PM // PORCH STAGE
Lung is a powerful two piece rock band comprised of Kate Wakefield (electric cello and vocals) and Daisy Caplan (drums). Their sound is dark and commanding with a style that defies conventional genre definitions, evoking the driving sludge of early grunge/post rock with layered sinister undertones. Since their first show in April 2016, the duo has been hitting it hard playing over 250 shows in 40 states. In March of 2017, they independently released their first full length album, Bottom of the Barrel, which was met with acclaim from across the United States and publications such as New Noise Magazine and The Fire Note. They were one of Daytrotter’s top 100 bands for 2017 and recently, worked the crowd into a frenzy at their SXSW 2018 Official Showcase. Kate and Daisy have worked in multitudes of projects in the past and draw from a rich range of influences. Daisy was a core member of the prolific rock band, Foxy Shazam, and feminist punk band, Babe Rage. Kate Wakefield is an ex-opera singer who has been writing and performing solo with live cello and vocal loops since 2014. Together they create an addictive and provocative sound that can only be fully enjoyed at a live show. This summer, Lung is releasing their sophomore full length album. Lung is currently on the road, rocking an impressive show roster for the remainder of the year. This run will include regions throughout the Midwest, West Coast, and Canada, looping to the East Coast before returning home.
