Lucius have confirmed they will perform a benefit concert honoring the Newport Folk Foundation on July 23 at Newport Blues Cafe in Newport, R.I. The gig has been dubbed Saturday Night Fever and lands smack in the middle of the Newport Folk Festival, which is happening on July 22 through 24.

Lucius’ Saturday Night Fever aftershow is scheduled to take place at 9 p.m., on July 23, following the band’s highly anticipated performance at Newport Folk Festival, which is also slated for the same day as their newly announced benefit concert. 

In 2020, the band shared some thoughts on the festival; they posted on their official Instagram page, “For the last 60 years, Newport Folk Festival has given artists a voice, and their fans, a respite. It’s become our second home, one we look forward to with bursting hearts, every year.” 

A limited number of tickets will go on sale next Thursday, June 23.
