Local music showcase Soundpost Sessions makes a return to in-person events on July 10.
"We're thrilled and excited to be hosting The Soundpost Sessions. Tim Gulsrud has done a tremendous job transforming LPM's TV studio into an intimate venue that will provide Longmont residents with a new way to experience and enjoy music," said LPM Executive Director Sergio Angeles.
Soundpost Sessions started hosting listening-room experiences at La Vita Bella in 2019, but the COVID pandemic put a halt to live, in-person music events. According to Tim Gulsrud, executive producer of the Soundpost Sessions, the new venue came about after a conversation with Angeles at a Longmont Creative District meeting.
LPM will record the performances, to be broadcast on Channel 8 and LPM’s website at a later date.
Gulsrud was excited about featuring Pamela Machala as the first performance, describing her sound as jazzy, soul-inspired piano. According to Gulsrud, Machala released her latest album, “Something Simple,” during COVID and couldn’t have an album release party.
“Not only will this be our first show at Longmont Public Media, but it’ll also be an album release for Pamala Machala,” Gulsrud said.
Capacity for the performance is limited to 40 people, according to Gulsrud. The event starts at 8 p.m. and attendees are allowed to bring their own alcohol.
Soundpost Sessions will be held monthly at LPM on the second Saturday of each month. Future performances include Alexa Wildish in August, Taylor Shae in September, Sturtz in October and Foxfeather in November.
