Lapel + Emily Afton
If you haven’t heard Lapel‘s debut record, Periphery, by now, after all our shouting about it, we aren’t sure what it will take for you to do so.

One way you can help us help you: Head out to Cafe du Nord on October 11 and hear it live and in person.

To be clear, this isnt Lapel’s “debut” in the truest sense of the word: Debbie Neigher has been slowly making a transformation from the piano-based balladry made under her given name to the smooth electronic sounds and urgent themes of Lapel. Featuring a backing band bursting at the seams with Bay Area music movers and shakers (members of Geographer, Astronauts, Etc., Magik*Magik Orchestra, and more), Periphery is one of the Bay Area’s standout releases of 2018.

Lapel’s getting some support from Oaklander Emily Afton and Meernaa. So come out to Cafe du Nord on next Thursday, and start closing out the year by looking back at some of the Bay’s best.
