Appearing for the first time as the only local band in a show, Vega, an alternative rock band from Kalamazoo, will be performing Saturday, December 28th with Decades, from Lansing, and Drift Lifted, from Saginaw, at Louie's Trophy House Grill, 440 East North St. The doors open at 8:30 p.m. and the show starts at 9:30 p.m. Admission is a suggested $5.
Benjamin Cooper, vocals and guitar, formed Vega with Jim Monette, bass in the summer of 2012. Once they had enough material for a full length album, they recruited Steven Mabry, drums. On August 22nd, 2013, the trio released their debut self-titled album, which will be for sale at the show for $5.
