Ale House, Hot Pink Flannel weekend
Rockland — The Velvet Lounge series will host a happening weekend, thanks to a return performance by the Ale House String Band and Hot Pink Flannel’s Screw Your Resolutions & Party event. Both events will take place at Rock City Cafe, 316 Main St.
On Friday, Jan. 11 from 5 to 7 p.m., the Ale House String Band will be picking, plucking, bowing, strumming and singing away. The Ale House String Band features Brian Dunn on mandolin, April Reed-Cox on cello and Oren Robinson on guitar. They perform anywhere within a day’s ride of the Midcoast and can be found in a plethora of venues. There is no cover charge; however, tipping the musicians is highly encouraged.
On Saturday, Jan. 12 at 9 p.m., Rock City open its doors for another Hot Pink Flannel bash featuring a great vibe and awesome dance music. Screw Your Resolution & Party will kick off the 2013 party season with a little break from all that recently acquired self-discipline. The party will run until midnight, and Rock City will be serving up some rad drink specials and unbelievable hospitality. Cover charge is $5 for the 21-and-older evening; for more information check out Hot Pink Flannel on Facebook.
