Live Music in the North State: November 15 – November 21

 

 

This week’s offerings include a birthday bash for the front man of one of Shasta County’s most popular bands, and a return local performance at Kelly’s from that performing songwriter from Cranberry, New York. We’ll have great touring acts stopping at the Vintage, The Dip, and the State Theatre. Also, after renovations by the new owners, the Post Office Saloon, arguably Shasta County’s longest-running music venue, is back in action with live music.

Thanksgiving comes next week. I’ve long had mixed feelings about restaurants that stay open for the holiday. No doubt many if not most food service workers would rather be home, but for folks who have no family or are traveling for the holidays, those open establishments can be a real blessing. (Been there.) As far as I know, CR Gibbs, Lulu’s, Lumberjack’s, Clearie’s, Sweetie’s, Win River, Marie Callendar’s, and Denny’s will serve on Thanksgiving. A special tip of the hat goes out to Mister Taco in Anderson, who will be offering their 2nd Annual Thanksgiving Day at Mister Taco, offering free meals to those who might otherwise miss out. Also, the Woodside Grill in the Gaia Hotel will offer a Thanksgiving meal and live music from J. Norman Stewart.
