Friday: Lansing-based jam quartet Fried Egg Nebula (below, photo credit Erica Spencer) are playing their first-ever headlining show at the Loft in Lansing tonight, and the guys are psyched.
“We have supported acts including Dopapod and Zach Deputy at the Loft over the last year and have developed a great and loyal fan base in the Midwest,” vocalist and guitarist Jerry Hoffman said. “… We’re also bringing in Pleasant Drive, and they’re a great band out of Kalamazoo, so it will be an amazing night of music.”
