Bloomington underground venue, The Orbit Room, will host touring indie singer Official Claire at 8 p.m. on Wednesday. Bloomington musicians TV Mike and Matt Lundquist will also perform.
Based out of Chicago, Official Claire is touring across the Midwest for the next week. After their first stop at The Orbit Room, the band will tour cities in Illinois, Wisconsin and Iowa. Her current touring band includes bassist LeRoy Bach, drummer Seth Vanek and pianist Brooks Palmer.
On Official Claire’s bandcamp site, she dedicated one of her most recent singles, “Type 1 Diabetes,” to all other type 1 diabetics in the United States. The song features drums, bass, organ, acoustic guitar and percussion along with vocals from Official Claire.
