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.

Know & Go

Bob Woods Trio kicks off the evening, followed by Park Street Riot and a headlining set by Cherry Rats.

Guests will be seated 30 minutes before the entertainment begins.

The Deer Creek Bar is outside, so please dress accordingly.  The Miners Foundry offers a full bar with food available for purchase and table service on select evenings.

Unpredictable weather and continually updated guidelines can mean frequent changes to our entertainment schedule.  We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Escaped Alone | Deer Creek Bar

Both performances are sold out.  Please email our Box Office at kat@minersfoundry.org to be added to the waitlist.

Sierra Stages and the Miners Foundry are pleased to present a play reading of Escaped Alone, written by Caryl Churchill and directed by Sands Hall, at the Deer Creek Bar at the Miners Foundry Cultural Center on Thursday, June 3 and Friday, June 4, 2021. The evening features local musicians Randy McKean and Murray Campbell who will perform prior to the play reading, and local actors Trish Adair, Mary Baird, Lorri Holt, Sharon Winegar who will perform Escaped Alone.

Originally scheduled as the third production of Sierra Stages’ 2020 season, Escaped Alone is an inventive and though-provoking work.  Set in a serene garden, three old friends are joined by a neighbor to engage in amiable chat-with a side of apocalyptic horror.  The women’s talk of grandchildren and TV shows breezily intersperses with tales of terror in a quietly teetering world where all is not what it seems.

The evening begins with Randy McKean and Murray Campbell performing light classical versions of British pop of the 60s (think “Downtown”, “You Really Got Me”, “I Know a Place”.)  After a brief pause for chat and refreshments, they’ll be joined by four distinguished local actors, Trish Adair, Mary Baird, Lorri Holt, and Sharon Winegar, to perform Escaped Alone.  Directed by Sands Hall.

The play’s title, Escaped Alone, is taken from the epigraph of Melville’s Moby Dick:  “I only am escaped alone to tell thee”, which aptly describes the narration of that novel.  However, the phrase comes originally from the Book of Job:  it’s uttered by four separate messengers who come to tell Job of his terrible losses.  How this connects to Churchill’s brilliant and funny (and dark and timely) play is something we hope the audience will be talking about for some time.

Know & Go

The Deer Creek Bar will open at 5:30pm, guests will be seated at 6:30pm, and the entertainment begins at 7:00pm.  The performance is approximately 100 minutes with one intermission.

The Deer Creek Bar is outside, so please dress accordingly.  The Miners Foundry offers a full bar with food available for purchase and table service on select evenings.

Mount Whateverest

TICKETS

The Miners Foundry is pleased to present Mount Whateverest and My Dallas Teens in the Osborn/Woods Hall on Saturday, June 12, 2021.  The show begins at 7:00pm and patrons will be seated at 6:30pm.

Nevada City’s own Mount Whateverest could qualify as a cultural institution.  The group originally formed in 2010, with mutations and changes along the way as local bands do before formalizing the line up in 2019.  As the world returns to normal, Mount Whateverest are poised to return to abnormal.  New songs showcase the band’s growing interest in EDM, house music, and hip hop.  Whether they’re playing reggae, space rock, glam, or electronica, Mount Whateverest are and continue to be The Highest Band on Earth.

From the beautiful mountains to the vast deserts, My Dallas Teens are holding fondly to a musical structure of times past and harmonies of the future.

My Dallas Teens kick off the evening followed by a headlining set by Mount Whateverest.
