La Luz at Blueberry Hill Duck Room has been canceled. Please see the message below from the band. All tickets will be refunded to the purchaser at the point of purchase.
“Hello sweet friends and Luzer fam.
You may have noticed a little radio silence on our end of late. Normally a
month before a tour we’d be blasting you with show announcements, but
we’ve been forced to shift our focus upon finding out that Shana has
breast cancer. While we’re still waiting to get info on what treatment
will look like it seems clear we won’t be able to make this East Coast
Tour happen in March. We know she’s going to pull through this stronger
than ever and are hoping that our European tour beginning in May will go on
as scheduled! We miss you all terribly and will rebook shows in the Midwest
and Eastern US ASAP*
We thought about announcing this as a vaguely worded cancellation due to
“a health issue” but decided that sharing this with you in a more
intimate way might provide an opportunity to make others struggling with all
the confusion and fear of this disease feel less alone.
Sending love to you all and can’t wait to see you again soon!
*All tickets will be refunded to the purchaser at the point of purchase.”

On their self-titled fourth album, La Luz launch themselves into a new realm of emotional intimacy for a collection of songs steeped in the mysteries of the natural world and the magic of human chemistry that has found manifestation in the musical ESP between guitarist and songwriter Shana Cleveland, bassist Lena Simon, and keyboardist Alice Sandahl.
To help shape La Luz, the band found a kindred spirit in producer Adrian Younge. Though primarily known for his work with hip-hop, soul, and jazz acts, Younge saw in La Luz a shared vision that transcended genre. “We both create music with the same attitude, and that’s what I love about them,” he says. “They are never afraid to be risky and their style is captivating. It was an honor to work with them.”
The result is an album that is both the most naturalistic and psychedelic of the band’s career. All the elements of classic La Luz are still present—the lush harmonies, the impeccable musicianship, the gorgeous melodies—but it’s a richer, earthier iteration, replete with inorganic sounds that mimic the surreality of nature—the humming of invisible bugs, the atmospheric sizzle of a hot day. La Luz is an album that celebrates love—of music, of friendship, of life in all its forms.
