My Brightest Diamond Shone Brightly at World Cafe

My Brightest Diamond Shone Brightly at World Cafe Words By: Carolyn Lederach, Photos By: Lindsey Borgman I came into World Cafe uncertain with what to expect from my first My Brightest Diamond show.  There was a decent all ages crowd spread throughout the downstairs stage, happily awaiting Shara to hit the stage.

In celebration of the release of their new EP, Tumbled, The Lawsuits played for a sold out room full of friends, fans, and strangers.
