Floater ~ “In Transition”
Floater returns to rock Nevada City on St. Patrick’s Day with special guests Lonely Kings, Dr. Luna, and Downshift! With intense and unforgettable live performances, Floater continues to sell out some of the largest concert halls across the west. Both electric and acoustic performances have swollen their concert attendance over the past several years. Their sound includes elements of rock, psychedelia, reggae, pop and even jazz and is wholly original. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. and the show begins at 6:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 and are available online, in person, or by phone at the Nevada City Box Office, (530) 265-5462 or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.
FLOATER, hailing from Portland, Oregon, has received two preliminary Grammy nominations, toured the USA and Canada, and recently released their most critically acclaimed record to date, “Wake.” They have been described in the press as “The nearest American thing to perfection” and “One of the greatest power trios in modern music.” Their fan base has grown over the years to a fever pitch and Floater fans are legendary for their dedication.
Take hooks that are catchier than a cold at a daycare. Add in a dark, moody, chaotic, yet melodic vibe. Then mix that with an overwhelming powerful sonic assault of the senses, and you have, THE LONELY KINGS. Nevada County natives now hailing from Sacramento, CA, The Lonely Kings have been spreading their Rock N’ Roll vision since 1995. The Lonely Kings have played / toured with established acts such as AFI, Papa Roach, Sugar Cult, A Static Lullaby, the Misfits, the Bled, and At the Drive over the past 15 years.
Started by frontwoman/singer/songwriter Rachelle DeBelle in 2010, local favorites DR. LUNA released their first album “Happy Full Moon” the eve of the Super Moon May 4th, 2012. They toured the west coast and spent a three month residency playing in Austin, Texas where the tour ended. Now back in Nevada City, CA, Dr. Luna is said to be preparing for a full Spring of Northern California performances, and finishing up their new album “The Riot of Comprehension”, to be released by March 2013.
DOWNSHIFT, a hard rock power trio, was birthed in 2007 in the Grass Valley / Nevada City area in Northern CA. Lawson Smith, Nick Doty, and Ryan Riley all have odd musical tastes ranging from outlaw country all the way to death metal and anything and everything in between. With such a wide array of influences, Downshift’s music tends to appease all types of musical pallets. They love to perform and have shared the stage with great bands like Lonely Kings and Devils Train. With great grooves, smooth lyrics, and tasty licks, Downshift’s got a sound everyone can get into.
