The last time I saw Lydia Loveless perform I turned to the stranger next to me and exclaimed,"Her voice is just as good as Lucinda Williams. It really is". Which is on par with saying, "that guy has as much charisma as Elvis", or "that bass player spits blood as well as Gene Simmons". Point being, she is great and you have the chance to see her for FREE at the always fabulous Independents' Day festival Saturday September 21st in Downtown Columbus.
Lydia will be heading back to tour Europe (again) this fall to get the planet pumped for her new release on Bloodshot Records set to drop in 2014.
To learn more about Lydia visit her website here or just pick up a copy of the latest Alive. She is on the cover. Bam.
