Enjoy delicious light bites provided by Shoreline Brewery, bringing a new element to your First Friday experience at LCA. We are thrilled with this new partnership with our valued neighbor. Beverages will be available for a nominal fee as before.

About Für Sermon:
We started singing together for fun when I started with The Diggity about three years ago and things just fell into place. We started Für Sermon and cranked out an album within a year. We wanted to perform more together acoustically and we are both music nerds, so we decided to incorporate a lot of those old songs that always get stuck in your head but you never knew all the words to into our set. Now we do a mix of original music and really fun and surprising covers that make people's ears perk up a bit. We perform a good mix to appeal to broad audiences. We play a range from old rock and roll songs to more obscure Pop covers. We're motivated by seeing people happy.
