Dead Winter Carpenters play Tep’s Friday before an 8-state tour

The Dead Winter Carpenters will try to build snow Friday.

The North Shore band visits the other side of the lake for an “Unofficial Snow Dance” party at Tep’s Villa Roma in South Lake Tahoe. The Sierra Drifters open the show at 9 p.m.

Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 at the door.

Fronted by singer and fiddle player Jenni Charles, the Dead Winter Carpenters are about to head out on a five-week, eight-state tour. This month it released a six song EP, “Dirt Nap.”

“We’ve been playing these tunes on the road this summer so a lot of people are familiar with most of them,” said rhythm guitarist-singer Jesse Dunn, one of the three “Dirt Nap” songwriters. “The studio versions are quite different. We’ve added some auxiliary instrumentation and some new ideas and tricks from the studio and it came out great. People are really happy with it.”

It is the first album, Dunn said, to be produced at Alexander Hawks LeLuca’s Lake Tahoe studio, Heavenly Tracks. It was recorded in two four-day sessions in July and September when the band was off the road. Dunn said DWC will have played almost 150 shows in 2013. Engineer Matt Wright also worked on “Ain’t It Strange,” a 2012 full-length album by the DWC.

Dave Lockhart plays upright bass, Bryan Daines lead guitar and Brian Huston drums.

The High Sierra Drifters were recently formed. Its South Shore players are Chris Seal, Andy Hatch, Nate Alcon and Ryan Kronenberg, who also is a music promoter with Pet Projekt Presents.

“Of all of my bands, including 4 Piece Puzzle, this has highest chance of greater success because we have original songs and the genre is pleasing to a lot of people,” Hatch told Tahoe Onstage before a recent show. “That band has a lot of potential.”
