BDP TNO: Lost Stars w/ The Briefly Gorgeous

Thursday, September 21
8:00pm - 10:00pm
South Lawn  
Add to Google Cal,Outlook,Yahoo,iCal

Lost Stars is composed of Kansas City natives Charley Holden (guitar, bass) and Damian Malnar (vocals/keys). After playing in bands together in their hometown as kids, they re-connected in 2014 at Nashville’s Belmont University and began playing together for campus showcases. Eventually, in 2016, it morphed into what is now known to be Lost Stars. When Covid-19 struck the world, the guys kept their creative juices flowing. They wrote a slew of catchy songs that were then previewed on TikTok which quickly went viral, garnering millions of views and thousands of new fans. The band got back on the road through the south and midwest with the artist Day Tvvo, and plans to release more music and continue touring.

Join us on the South Lawn for another TNO with opener The Briefly Gorgeous starting at 8pm, and Lost Stars following at 9pm.
