Tonight's free Summer Concert moved indoors to Edwards Church: THUS LOVE with Lord Russ

ATTENTION: Tonight's free summer concert featuring Thus Love with Lord Russ will be moved indoors due to weather concerns. Join us at Edwards Church (297 Main St) across the street from Pulaski Park. Same time 6:00-8:00pm.

WHAT: THUS LOVE with Lord Russ solo 
WHERE: Edwards Church 297 Main St Northampton, MA 01060
WHEN: Friday August 4, 2023. 6:00-8:00pm

THUS LOVE is a band—but also so much more. The Brattleboro, Vermont trio stand together, a bond cemented by their experience as outsiders looking in. For THUS LOVE, DIY is an ethos that reflects not only their musical vision but their very existence as three self-identifying trans artists. From the band’s inception, Echo Mars (she/her), Lu Racine (he/him) and Nathaniel van Osdol (they/them) have lived together under the same roof, designed and produced their own merch, and even created their own recording studio from scratch. “I realize that most artists don’t live this way,” says Mars. “But for us, it was never really a choice. The art we make is so tied to who we are and the community we’re a part of, that this is the only way we can possibly do it.”
