LEVITT ON THE LAWN From their fetching, unpredictable songs to their whimsical, hand-made top hats, SHEL makes a profound impression, something they are doing to growing crowds and critical acclaim. Nestled within SHEL's enveloping sound, wisps of folk revival, vaudeville, renaissance fairs and steam-punk esthetic blur around one another. They are a vocal group with outstanding instrumental capabilities and an instrumental group with a thrilling vocal attack. Snacks and desserts will be available for purchase from a variety of local Claremont restaurants beginning at 6 p.m. Picnic dinners are also welcomed, and a limited number of blankets and lawn chairs will be available to checkout at no cost (ID must be left for collateral).
