LPR Staff’s Best Records of 2021



Well 2021, it’s been a doozy. After 533 days of suspended operations, we were able to return this past August to welcome you all back into our open arms. Somehow, someway, we’ve had some of the best shows we’ve ever put on <3 Obviously, music is the life-blood of this venue and it takes a passionate staff with a diverse palette to keep our intimate and eclectic lineup thriving.

Here’s a taste of the music we fell in love with this year!
