Slutzville

 

 

Slutzville all started with a girl named Jessi and that leads us up to now.  Loud, drunk, and vulgar kids always down to tear it up.

Dog Party EPK

Dog Party

 

Gwendolyn and Lucy Giles of Dog Party have been making music around Northern California for a couple of years.  When they’re not juggling school, sports, pets, life, or tearing up the hill at Squaw Valley, they are busy writing, recording, and playing some of the freshest, most exciting fun rock n roll around.

Pug Skullz ~ “Smoke”

Pug Skullz

 

Pug Skullz is a three piece punk band from the back woods of Nevada County, CA.  In the spirit of punk ancestors like 7 Seconds and Stiff Little Fingers, Pug Skullz music is catchy, loud, fast, and simple, while the lyrics carry a contemplative message of surprising depth.  The Vinyl Avenger calls Pug Skullz music “… late 70’s, early 80’s, honest, raw, fast and loud, in-your-face punk rock.  Just the way we like it here!”

Devil’s Train ~ “Last Caress”

The Devils Train

 

 

Jazz Punk from Hell  musicians The Devils Train feature a tidal wave of fast drum beats, mad slapping, crazy picking, and psychotic lyrics that only a demon could love.  If you love a circle pit or just want to watch, The Devils Train is for you!

Make it a Rockin’ Father’s Day Weekend

It’s a rockin’ Father’s Day weekend at the Miners Foundry, beginning Thursday, June 14th with a special one night only screening of “The Other F Word”, a consistently hilarious, raucous, eye-opening, and unexpectedly wise documentary on what happens when a generation’s ultimate anti-authoritarians — punk rockers– become society’s ultimate authorities — dads.

Written and directed by Andrea Blaugrund Nevins and produced by Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me, The Future of Food), “The Other F Word” also features skater Tony Hawk, Art Alexakis (Everclear), Mark Mothersbaugh (Devo), Tony Adolsecent (the  Adolescents), Fat Mike (NOFX), Lars Frederiksen (Rancid), and many others.

“The Other F Word” strips away the seemingly odd juxtaposition of rebellion versus parenthood and shows at the end of the day, it is no longer about the struggle of you against the world; it is about your children and the sacrifices you make for their happiness.  It is said once you have children, your entire world changes and you as a person change as well.  Watching these men thrash out on stage to then come home and help pick out a dress for their daughter to wear to school proves that maybe you do not have to change completely, instead you adapt.  Lindberg makes a telling observation at the end of the film that maybe music is not the only way to try and change the world, maybe being better parents and raising better kids can help achieve that goal as well.

Doors 6pm, Film 7pm,
Tickets: $7/Students & Seniors, $9/GA
Popcorn and snacks available for purchase, plus no host beer & wine bar

Friday, June 15th, Meet us at the Foundry to groove, shake and dance to original songs by Nevada County’s ultimate party band, Power of 12, plus incredible covers of songs by Prince, Tower of Power, Aretha, Santana, Chaka Kahn, James Brown, Joss Stone, Sly and The Family Stone, and more.

P12 brings you a tight 5-piece horn section, a groovy 5-piece rhythm crew, and 2 women up front, throwing down dance moves, percussion, and full-bodied vocals.  Forget about chairs: this isn’t sit-down music. P12 delivers a full dose for all-night dancing! P12 kicks a grooving song mix, with dynamic, soulful versions of great original and popular music, a high-octane blend of Funk, R&B, and World Music.

Doors 6pm
Tickets: $20, Buy them here.

Make it a Weekend!  In addition to all of the fun to be had at the Miners Foundry, Nevada City will also host the 2nd Annual Soapbox Derby on Saturday, June 16th, and the 52nd Annual Nevada City Classic Bicycle Race on Sunday, June 17th.  AND our sister city Grass Valley will host the 37th Annual Father’s Day Bluegrass Festival at the Nevada County Fairgrounds.

On Saturday, during the Nevada City Soap Box Derby, 42 teams of three or more people, racing everything from sleek aerodynamic speed cars to amazing works of art on wheels, will take to the 1/2 mile course down Nimrod Street near Pioneer Park in Nevada City.  This family fun event not only brings together local businesses and the community but also raises monies for new projects and amenities in the park for everyone to enjoy.  10am-4pm.  More info at www.ncderby.com.
