A tribute show to TWO Iconic Bands: The B-52's and Morphine! Formed in 2017, Lowroc thoughtfully & faithfully recreates the groundbreaking music of iconic 90's Boston area band Morphine. Lowroc is comprised of local musicians Cody Keim (Nervis Rex,) Tim Hall (Yachtly Crew,) Patrick McLaughlin (Jack River Kings & Rabbit Creek Ramblers.) Formed in late 2017, the B-49s are Alaska's tribute live performance band celebrating the eclectic weirdly-fun post-punk mod dance music of the 1980's band, The B-52’s. Comprised of Anchorage vocal powerhouse singers, Katie Riley (Sassafras,) Jenny Baker (Arctic Sirens, Lullaby Project,) Laurence Blakely (The Cheapest Key,) and accompanied by Mark Ward (Last Train,) and seasoned drummer Eric Hoover, The B-49s recreate the high energy and highly danceable sounds of the B-52's. Tickets available at the door.
