Local Indie Band, Lightning Love!, performs this Friday at the Elbow Room

Independent music is one of the most unique and varied forms of modern musical art around. Created purely of the artists own intentions, the term “indie” refers to a band's independence from major record labels and their influences. It's when you plunge into the ever-growing pool of these artists that you find the unique sounds that are too often over-looked in mainstream music.

Lightning Love! in all ways represents the indie music scene.

This Ann Arbor-area trio was formed in 2007 and has been rocking the local music scene ever since; playing shows all around the southern-Michigan, northern-Ohio area. The band consists of Leah Diehl on keyboard and vocals, her brother Aaron Diehl on drums, and Ben Collins on guitar. Together these three musicians create an incomparable upbeat pop sound.

Check them out this weekend to enjoy some locally raised talent. Lightning Love! will be performing songs from their first studio release November Birthday, including their hit “Everyone I Know,” tomorrow, February 5th, in the Elbow Room. The show begins at 10:00p.m. with opening performances by The Daredevil Christopher Wright, Ferdy Mayne, and Greg McIntosh. The cost is $5 at the door.

Venue location: 6 South Washington, Ypsilanti, MI 48197
