Last Sunday night, the Grey Eagle was host to an insanely solid trio of bands. The party started off with Luna Shadows, a Los Angeles performer with enough soul and spunk to go around for everyone. Her electro-pop sound was fresh and cool as she belted out songs from her 2016 debut album Summertime. She even managed to sneak in her new single “Cheerleader.”
