Rose’s Pawn Shop to perform at Mountain Harvest Brew Fest
Plumas Arts is pleased to host Rose’s Pawn Shop to perform at the Mountain Harvest Brew Fest on Saturday, Oct. 12, at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds in Quincy, from 1 to 5 p.m.
The band — popular throughout the U.S. and a favorite band from the Lost Sierra Hoedown — provides strains of Appalachian and Americana music channeled through five guys from Los Angeles.
Heartache, loss and regret have always been the cornerstones of great music, and Los Angeles has more than its share.
The band confronts traditional country music themes of loss, lamentation and redemption, with a couple of drinking songs for good measure. Sure, they’re borrowing pages from the books of the old style American sounds of Woody Guthrie, Bill Monroe, and Hank Williams, but Rose’s Pawn Shop takes those pages, tears them up and sets them on fire with three and four part vocal harmonies and lyrics that’ll break your heart. They bring with a higher energy approach more reminiscent of modern Alt-Rock, all with a deeply melodic songwriting sensibility.
In 2010, after the release of its album “Dancing on the Gallows,” the band began touring the country converting an ever-increasing congregation of fans. On any given night, you could find Rose’s Pawn Shop playing the Georgia Theatre in Athens, busking the streets of Jackson Square in New Orleans, opening for Jack White and The Raconteurs at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, “ripping the walls off the club” in their month-long residence at the Parkside Lounge in New York City, or hitting the main stages of prestigious festivals such as Floydfest in Virginia and Wakarusa in Arkansas. Now Quincy audiences will be offered the chance to get on board.
This event is one of the primary fundraising events for Plumas Arts. Your attendance brings you the fun-time community gathering where you can enjoy the music of Rose’s Pawn Shop, mingle with a wonderful collection of folks, sample a great selection of libations and support community and the arts in Plumas County!
Tasting Passes, available to those 21 and over, are $35 in advance and available online at plumasarts.org or the Plumas Arts Gallery and Quincy Natural Food until 4 p.m. on Oct. 11. At the gate, admission is $40 or $10 if you just want to come and hear the music.
