Cherry Rats | Deer Creek Bar

TICKETS

The Miners Foundry is pleased to present Cherry Rats, Park Street Riot, and the Bob Woods Trio at the Deer Creek Bar on Saturday, May 29, 2021.  The show begins at 7:00pm and patrons will be seated at 6:30pm.

Cherry Rats, Nevada City’s heaviest band started from humble beginnings common to Nevada City:  musicians run into each other at breakfast and a band is born.  Guitarist and singer Chris Streng, bassist Art Echternacht, and drummer Ryan Everson christened themselves Cherry Rats, a loose anagram of the names Chris, Ryan, and Art. The band knew immediately this would be no slacker garage rock affair, they were on a mission to be the loudest, craziest, and most flamboyant hard rock outfit ever to emerge from the Sierra Foothills.   Their double album “Hungry for Distortion / Appetite for Dynamite” will be released on multiple formats in 2022.  Cherry Rats are poised to make heavy metal history with their head banging riffs, propulsive rhythms, and a live show that must be seen to be believed.

Formed in the quiet northern California foothills in 2016, Nevada City’s Park Street Riot has continually pushed their own sonic edge, establishing themselves as one of the most dynamic, powerful, and energetic new bands to emerge from the greater Sacramento area.  In the current sea of cheap rock monotony, Park Street Riot’s music shines as a strange and exceptional jewel, bringing forth a realness and honesty representative of their own personal friendship and backwoods home.

Nevada County favorites the Bob Woods Trio features Bob Woods, Skip Alan Smith, and Billy Smart.  With a combined 145 years of playing music the seasoned members of the Bob Woods Trio offer a unique style and sound that matches their diverse music.

Th’ Losin Streaks

California’s favorite garage-punks Th’ Losin Streaks began their long journey together in 2003 when a group of longtime friends got together after years of watching each other play in different Sacramento groups like The Trouble Makers and Daisy Spot. Obsessed with 1960’s garage bands, the four honed a sound that was both fresh and familiar, and their incendiary live performances generated immediate buzz.

Things happened quickly:  their debut record “Sounds of Violence”, was released in 2004, followed by tours of Europe and the US with invitations to open for legendary acts like The Zombies.  The band and the record collected kudos and built a wide-ranging fanbase that includes The Dead Kennedys’ Jello Biafra and E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt, who proclaimed the group’s “Your Love, Now” as “The Coolest Song in the World (this week)” in his Billboard column and sent the tune into heavy rotation on Sirius’ Underground Garage radio station.  Th’ Losin Streaks’ new album “This Band Will Self-Destruct in T-Minus” was released in 2018 and received rave reviews.

With tour plans cancelled due to 2020, the band used their down time to work on a new record.  Their latest single will be released soon and a third album is on the way.  Th’ Losin Streaks are back and better than ever!

Kate X Grace

I’m Kate X Grace.

I started playing and writing music when I was 12.

I enjoy all types of music but Rock, Punk, and Metal are my favorites.

I find them to be the most exciting!

I love the passion and energy in music that performers and audiences create together in the spirit of Rock n’ Roll!
