Sierra Nevada Brew Night
Old Ironsides was packed to the gills Saturday night for an epic three-band bill. Two of Sacramento’s best young rock bands, Honyock and Walking Spanish, bookended San Francisco darlings Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers.
All three played inspired sets, as you would know if you were there.
If you weren’t, well, you would be well served to attend their next Sacramento gigs.
Honyock is bringing their rare blend of folk, classic and new age rock to the Luna’s on Friday, March 4.
And Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers — well, Nicki has no Sacramento dates upcoming, although she has been known to make surprise (or not-so-surprise) appearances at her husband’s shows. Tim Bluhm will be at Marilyn’s on K with the Mother Hips this Saturday.
So what of the Gramblers, you ask?
in conjunction with Sacramento Beer Week, the Shady Lady will have Sierra Nevada Hoptimum, Glissade and a special top-secret brewer’s choice on draft.
Dave Mulligan & Friends (Deren Ney and Mike Curry) go on at 10 p.m. These guys are all supremely talented musicians, and they assured me personally that they will be blowing the doors off. Chico’s Dick and Jane open things up at 9 p.m.
It’s not every day you get a second chance. I just gave you four of ‘em. See you at the shows.
