Going back a couple decades, and Philly rocker Lisa Flynn was at the center of the late 90s / early 00s indie-punk scene in Philadelphia. Flynn worked behind the scenes at the legendary Trocadero and its Balcony Bar, she co-founded the Sugar Town women-in-rock series with Philly DJ and music writer Sara Sherr, and she fronted the badass rock band Lisa Christ Superstar, which this week is releasing its first album in 20 years.
Philly-based Lisa Christ Superstar has announced the release of their debut LP, “Soundtrack of the Floating World,”on Nov. 5. Produced by Grammy winner Joe “The Butcher” Niccolo (James Taylor, Jazzy Jeff, The Fugees, Lauryn Hill, Billy Joel), the album’s 12 original songs explore themes of grief, liberation, strength, forgiveness and fate with Lisa Flynn’s blistering guitar work and Eric Perfect’s booming, driving percussion. Lisa Christ Superstar will perform at The Fire in Philadelphia on Nov. 6 in celebration of the album’s release. For details, visit firephilly.com.
