The Lothars

Offerings, Feb. 2, 2003, at Emmanuel Church in Boston, MA

This was a fundraising benefit for Bali Hati that took place in the stone chapel of the Emmanuel Church, 15 Newbury Street in Boston. It was organized by Ramona & Dean, so of course the Lothars played. To be fair, we went on first, at 2pm, during this 9 band, 9 hour marathon of mostly contemplative music. As R&D put it, "the music [was] diverse, featuring theremins, acoustic guitars, bowed cymbals, electric guitars, middle eastern strings, loops, and all manner of esoteric sounds...unified in the spirit of contemplative music, and given as Offerings." The benefit was a smashing success — over $600 was raised for the cause. More information is at
