EVENT CATEGORIES: Outdoor | Music | Elmwood Park
Down by Downtown, a three-day celebration of music with concerts at multiple venues in downtown Roanoke, will feature Lotus in Elmwood Amphitheater on April 22.
Having built a massive fan base over the years, Lotus sells out headline shows across the country and plays festivals such as Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Ultra, and more. Expect to have an experience of the senses with powerful beats and an accompanying light show. The band's new album, Eat the Light, features tracks that bubble with contagious dance energy and blast into orbit with sing-along choruses. The tightly produced yet raw grooves recall sounds of The Talking Heads, Jamiroquai, and LCD Soundsystem.
Two acts slated to perform at the July FloydFest — Hayley Jane & the Primates and Broccoli Samurai — will open for Lotus on April 22. Tickets are $24 in advance and $28 the day of the show. Gates open at 5 p.m.
And don't miss the Free Friday Concert in Elmwood Amphitheater on April 21. Gates open at 5 p.m. and feature MC Broom & the Jam along with two-three acts that will be announced in the near future.
