IT'S BEEN A HOT MINUTE; SO LET'S CATCH UP.
Hello Lucid Street fans! The date is August 12, 2023, and it has been FAR too long since we've updated you on what we have going on!
For starters, we played our first out of state show on July 22nd in Washington D.C. at Madams Organ. The show and the crowd were amazing, and we had a line down the entire street! (Photos below) Thank you D.C. , and we hope to be back soon!
We are currently in not one, but TWO competitions! Lucid Street was selected to compete in Audacy's Opening Act competition, and we have been doing exceptionally well! If we make it to the top, we will win $10,000, a trip to NYC, and the ability to open for some of the biggest acts in the industry at the Prudential Center. We have steadily been holding down 3rd place, and are currently in the final 10 of our group, but we need your help to make it all the way to the top! You can press here to vote!
Lucid Street is also currently nominated for the Daily Gazette's Best of The Best 2023! We need your help to make sure that we make it past the nominations phase and into the finals. To nominate us, press here, scroll to the Entertainment & Leisure section, scroll down to Best Band, and nominate Lucid Street! Nominations end 8/19 and voting opens 8/20.
As for upcoming shows, we will be back at Exit 33 at Turning Stone Resort & Casino 8/25/2023, although this time we will be playing at "The Gig". We can't wait to rock with you all! Additionally, we will be playing our first theatre show on 9/29 at The Strand Theatre in Hudson Falls, NY. Tickets will be available for purchase soon.
To close off this lengthy news update, thank you all for being such amazing fans, and we have some exciting show announcements and Lucid Street surprises coming soon! We can't talk about them yet, but as soon as we can, you'll be the first to know.
Much love, CMBNP
