Starlight Theatre, which has drawn big names like Lil Wayne, Ke$ha and Journey, recently played host to SM East band Local Talk. The band is made up of four senior Lancers- guitarists Ian Harmon and Gardner Grantham, bassist Thomas Petrie and drummer Maxwell Braasch.
While setting up on a professional stage, Local Talk was nervous about playing to a bigger and more mature crowd than they were used to. They were part of an opening act and played 15 original songs.
Local Talk got the gig through a good friend of the band, Jason Taylor, who recorded both of their albums. Taylor works at Starlight and got them into the show.
“It was an amazing opportunity to perform for a large group of people who can appreciate and respect our music,” Harmon said.
