A&O announces Lisa/Liza as 2018 Philfest opener

    In a partnership between A&O Productions and SEED, this year’s Philfest will feature the lo-fi, psych-folk group Lisa/Liza as the opening act.

    Maine-based Lisa/Liza, otherwise known as guitarist, singer and songwriter Liza Victoria, has toured nationally with Advance Base & Jens Lekman. Her 2016 album Deserts of Youth was recorded at home, with Victoria just using her voice and guitar. Her most recent work is the five-song EP Barn Coat.

    The festival will take place on the Norris East Lawn on May 28, starting at 1 p.m. Doors will open at 12:30 p.m. The event is free, and students will be able to tie-dye, make friendship bracelets and slackline.

    Here's hoping the Evanston weather will realize it is now spring and will act accordingly for the event.
