Last summer, Lost City, the RiNo-based coffeehouse, restaurant and bar at 3459 Ringsby Court, hosted Lost City Live, an outdoor independent music recovery showcase whose proceeds went to local artists and music-industry professionals.

Lost City owner Michael Graham says for some of the acts that played the fifty-person capacity shows on the venue’s patio, those gigs were their only concerts last year.

“It was extra-special, and I think the guests really appreciated being able to hear live music,” Graham says.

While Lost City is bringing live music back to its patio this year starting on April 16, the coffeehouse also just introduced Lost City Social, a summer-long festival pass where guests can experience great music at a low cost while enjoying coffee and craft cocktails.

“If you're more interested in live music, you have unlimited tickets to shows for the summer,” Graham says. “If you live right next to the shop, you can just get a latte day to day as part of your pass. And so, combining that, I think it's a pretty unique appeal, especially with a cocktail program."

Passes run from $19 to $99, and each tier includes various perks.

“I think it will be really fun to be able to come to our show and get a handcrafted cocktail included in the ticket and know that you're not spending $86 for every show. If you want to make up for lost time, you can see ten shows this summer. ... We wanted to make it accessible to folks, especially people that may have lost their jobs or haven't seen a show in a year.”

While concerts were limited to fifty people last year, Graham says he’s hoping to slowly increase capacity and possibly move from seated shows to general admission this year, depending on state and city COVID-19 regulations, since the patio could hold up to a hundred people. He also hopes to host shows on Thursdays in addition to weekend sets.

Graham says he’ll continue to bring in a diverse lineup of local independent acts, everything from country and blues to bluegrass, hip-hop and more.

The live music starts Friday, April 16 with King Cardinal with Grace Clark; Sarah Slaton and Brianna Straut play on Saturday, April 17. The following weekend, Lost City will host two nights of River Arkansas.
