LAKE PLACID - The Pines Inn Songs at Mirror Lake Music Series presented by Adirondack "By Owner" has announced the fifth performance Tuesday, July 31, as Alternative Indie Night with Civil Twilight.
The music series is held at 7 p.m. on seven Tuesdays throughout the summer at Mid's Park on Main Street, Lake Placid.
These free, weekly performances, run through Aug. 14, feature local, regional and national acts.
Civil Twilight brings a perfect blend of atmospheric sound and hazy storytelling.
Cape Town's not exactly the center of the musical universe; while their South African roots provided much inspiration, the band grew tired of their surroundings and soon relocated to Los Angeles. After a brief stint in LA, they decided to see what America had to offer and found a studio in South Carolina, where they recorded their first self-titled album but felt a need to experience something bigger. For their sophomore release they decided to settle in Nashville and found themselves enamored with the culture and people.
Civil Twilight spent the better part of the last year on tour playing the likes of Bonnaroo and Voodoo Fest, opening for acts like Smashing Pumpkins and Florence & The Machine, and headlining their own shows across the country. Every song is written from a different character's perspective; Steven taps into fictional personae, inspired by real-life people he's met and wonders how they'd adapt to certain situations.
