LHS Featured in The Pitch | Written by Nick Spacek
“Why not de-stress from trying to shop and get things shipped by digging into this vast array of visual musical entertainment while you’re the fifteenth person in line at the post office? Listening to some quality local hip hop—of which we have lots—beats listening to that dude arguing with the postal clerk because he thinks having to pay for tape is an infringement on his personal freedoms. Put in those earbuds and give this Cine Local lineup a look-see, why don’t you?
Sky Smeed, “Fur-Ever” (live)
As with many things this year, the Lawrence Humane Society’s annual Fur Ball fundraiser had to go online, but that doesn’t mean that they didn’t manage to celebrate in grand style. That included musical performances, and as part of that, folk artist Sky Smeed actually composed a theme song for the newly-renovated shelter. It’s charming as hell, and if you liked it, you can head to LHS’ website to donate or find out more about adopting. In the interest of full disclosure, it bears mentioning that I volunteered with LHS for nearly 4 years and was at one point “Head Cat Photographer.”
Sky Smeed’s latest, True Love, came out last month. You can stream it on Spotify or buy a copy at Smeed’s website, linked above.”
