Flat Land, a funk group based out of Gainesville, will play their final show at Heartwood
Soundstage on Saturday, April 29. This event is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a night out in
Gainesville and to celebrate Flat Land’s accomplishments and contributions to the Gainesville
music scene and community.
A VIP set will begin at 7 p.m., followed by an outdoor show at 9 p.m.
The band will perform songs off of their debut full-length record, Arrow to the Sun. Arrow to the
Sun showcases the band’s eclectic sound and tight compositions, quirkily self-described as
Flat Land’s out-of-the-box sound is reminiscent of artists like Beck, Led Zeppelin, Alabama
Shakes, and Hiatus Kaiyote. Led by frontwoman Fae Nageon de Lestang (a descendant of
pirates with buried treasure somewhere off the east coast of Africa) on vocals and electric violin,
their live performances have been catching national attention at top tier festivals, such as
Okeechobee Music Festival and Suwannee Hulaween.
“Arrow to the Sun is our first album and we really wanted to make the best product possible.
Cutting the record was an adventure and we really hope to bring a piece of that experience to
new faces,” said Fae Nageon de Lestang, frontwoman/violinist.
Outside of the studio, the band spends their time working to promote music education within
their community. Flat Land founded Future Music Makers this past spring along with electronic
duo Bells & Robes and marketing firm Phairground. The organization works to create
opportunities for youth to foster creativity and a passion for music in north central Florida.
