Rock City Cafe's Velvet Lounge series will present singer/songwriter Scotty Saints Saturday, April 12, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the downtown venue, 316 Main St.

Saints has been performing for more than two decades and has written a library's worth of songs that hold a strong message. His goal is to bring these messages to a larger audience. The acoustic format allows him to break down the walls associated with specific genres and his songs are written this way, so it only makes sense to bring it back to basics every so often.

Rock City’s lunch service is now extended till closing on music nights. For more information on this and other events happening at the coffeebar/cafe, call 594-4123 or find it on Facebook.
