Lakefield is playing the Cambie alongside The Ghostbirds and (as the) Crow Flies Fri. Sept. 16.

Vancouver-based five-piece Lakefield is headlining a show in Esquimalt this week as part of their first-ever visit to the Island.

The indie group, whose sound has been compared to that of twee-poppers Death Cab For Cutie, is touring in support of their debut release Sounds From the Treeline.

The band has some unique visual accompaniment planned as well. Lights embedded in the band members’ clothing will be triggered by drum beats during their set.

Lakefield hits the stage at the Cambie (856 Esquimalt) on Fri, Sept. 16, along with The Ghostbirds and (as the) Crow Flies. Show at 8 p.m., cover is $5. M
