Low benefit concert for Life House on The PlayList.
The band includes lead vocalist, songwriter and guitar front-man, Alan Sparhawk; Mimi Parker lends her talents on drums and vocals; and Steve Garrington adds rhythmic bass guitar and keyboard. Low’s music is often referred to as “slowcore,” a subgroup of the more widely known rock music genre. While the group isn’t a fan of that label, they were one of the first bands to adopt and popularize this music style. Discover the band’s roots, minimalistic approach to music and the personal stories of these talented musicians in this special episode of The PlayList.
This past fall, Low and Charlie Parr joined forces to raise funds, and awareness for homeless youth of the Duluth area. These two powerful forces offered a night of music in support of Life House, a local program that assists youth in escaping poverty, homelessness, and abuse. All proceeds from the concert directly benefited the lives of at risk/homeless youth through Life House’s “Adopt-A-Kid” Program.
