Acoustic guitar artist Jason Lavassuer to perform tomorrow
Looking for something fresh and new to do tomorrow night? Check out the hilarious acoustic guitar artist Jason Lavassuer. The entertainment begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 21, at Scooter's. Bring your friends; STAR is sponsoring this free performance. As the Columbia, S.C., Free Times observed, LeVasseur's music contains "great songwriting and energy uncommon in acoustic-based music." He has a voice that Indie-Music.com's Jennifer Layton called "drawling, weathered (and) warm."
