Introducing Lisa’s lsg spot weekly column


Welcome to my weekly thoughts and information regarding the Connecticut entertainment scene.  Each week, you can expect me to highlight a local band, performer, venue, radio program, promoter (you get the picture!) that I think is relevant and exciting here in our lovely state.  Connecticut has a wealth of amazing artists and performers and it will be my goal to introduce you to some of them.  You really don’t have to live in NY or Boston to enjoy quality entertainment.  It’s all right here if you know where to look.  And I’m going to help you with that!All views, opinions, and commentary will be my own and I welcome opposing thoughts.  I would also appreciate your ideas on bands I should check out and spotlight…not limited to any particular genre.  You can expect a little of everything from me.You can email me with your thoughts, ideas, or even a good heckle (And yeah, I’ll heckle back!) at lsg@localbandreview.com and you can follow me on Twitter at @lsgoriginalSo thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you’ll be back weekly!

Lisa Sanchez Gonzalez aka lsg

Lover of music and the visual arts, Lisa Sanchez Gonzalez is the insanity behind lsg original photography. lsg specializes in artist and performer photography. She’s had the honor of photographing national bands such as Weezer, Snoop Dogg, A Simple Plan, Paramore, Whitesnake, Wye Oak, and The Antlers along with countless local bands and performers.

Hailing from Hartford, CT, Lisa is a life- long music connoisseur. Growing up, her mother exposed her to everything from The Stones to Simon and Garfunkel to Earth, Wind, and Fire to Loretta Lynn…and everything in between. No genre was left unexplored in her vinyl collection. She saw her first concert at 14…Rod Stewart at the (then called) Hartford Civic Center. Thirty years later, it’s still her favorite pastime.

Lisa has two kids (grown!) and a day job. Her loves of music and photography have melded into a second career. And her love of CT keeps her promoting and pushing for local artists and performers. Lisa spends the greater part of her free time seeing and shooting live bands, performers, and artists and art work…and purchasing vinyl!
