Live at Lakeview: SkaGrass with World’s Finest, Lonesome Locomotive
August 16, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm
SkaGrass will be played this week at Live at Lakeview with World’s Finest and Lonesome Locomotive. World’s Finest describes itself as “foot stompin’ Americana dance floor Instigators from Portland, Oregon.” With a songwriting style rooted in Americana, the band banks on its ability to transcend genres of all kinds. String-centric and bluegrass-inspired compositions seamlessly transition into three dimensional psychtrance, funk, and dub soundscapes, leaving audiences with a full circle experience of emotion and dance. Their musicians’ appreciation for punk and ska can be found peppered throughout their shows and albums, made evident by up-tempo, high-energy offerings. The band is Chris Couch (guitar/vocals), Evan Malfer (bass), Dan Hurley (banjo/vocals), Mike Apodaca (drums) and Sean McLean (sax/guitar/vocals). Based in Northern California, Lonesome Locomotive writes, records and performs roots-rock, folk and jam music. Its musicians are familiar faces to some Tahoe-area fans, as Lonesome Locomotive has performed at the Hangtown Music Festival in Placerville. The band is Michael Rosen (guitar/vocals), Erin Cassidy (drums), John-Paul McLean (bass/vocals), Jordan Feinstein (keyboardss/vocals) and Jay Chavez (guitar/vocals). Born in San Francisco, its varied influences include Hank Williams, Kate Wolf, Phish, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Townes Van Zandt and Jerry Garcia.
