We at Art Beat are pleased to announce that Mission Creek Oakland is going to kick off its 2014 monthly program at The Uptown Nightclub (every third Thursday) Thursday, January 16 with an evening of signature CA power pop, punk, glam and new wave rock co-produced with Art Beat Foundation. It’s a a party of epic proportions sure to start the new year right.
Headlining the show will be unashamed party rockers from Nevada City, Mount Whateverest. Fresh from their successful Fall 2013 European tour, the band will be celebrating the release of their second CD, Electric City, here in the U.S. this month. Affectionately known as, “a drinking band with a rock & roll problem,” Mount Whateverest serves up a powerful live show which involves high energy driving hooks, no holds barred-from the gut vocal lines, anthemic cries against the man, rampant costumery, on-stage dancers/back up singer/seductresses and projection—one ready to take full advantage of the theatrical production venues at the iconic Uptown.
Joining MWE will be the The Bottle Kids, the latest power-pop masterpiece from Berkeley prodigal son & power pop veteran, Eric Blakely—back in the Bay Area following time on the road with Paul Collins & The Nerve for his “King of Power Pop” release/tour and a ten year stint in Austin, TX. Also on the bill are Oakland based, Super Natural and SF-based, The Rabbles.
So, come on out to the Uptown, January 16 for an amazing show from some of the finest folk musicians to grace our Bay Area!
