Anita Lofton Acoustic Project | Union Square Live
October 9, 2013 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm| Free
Formerly of punk trio Sistas in the Pit, the talented guitarist and singer-songwriter gave up her wah-wah, smallstone and rat pedals for greater things.
With her former Sistas she toured China and Europe, and took an infamous national tour supporting a certain James “Iggy Pop” Osterberg and the Stooges during that band’s reunion in 2007. She claims to have “traded in her Marshall half stack and Epiphone semi hollow body casino for a microphone and an Epiphone acoustic guitar,”yet she’s got the rock in her blood. With Anita’s new minimal and acoustic approach she expresses a new direction in songwriting that is as candid, earnest, cool and assertive while seeking greater understanding of others and cloaking sentiment in attitude.
The 2013 Union Square Live festival presents 70+ free events like live music, swing & tango dance lessons, film nights, circus arts, and more in Union Square Park from April 21 through October 9, 2013.
