Rockland — The Velvet Lounge music series of Rock City Café, 316 Main St., will cap the month of August with two nights of sets by local singer/songwriters. The music will run from 7 to 9 p.m. both nights.

On Friday, Aug. 29, the Velvet Lounge welcomes back 23-year-old Georgina Butler, who has been writing and performing music for 19 years. A classically trained pianist since childhood, Butler takes cues from her early musical background while blending influences ranging from the blues, folk, rockabilly, rock 'n' roll of the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s to music of today and punk rock of various styles and eras. She has played with the bands Rosamonde, Smokin' Dead Souls, drive by todd and at FOG's open mics. Her distinctive voice and words offer a counterpoint to often romantic original music.

On Saturday, Aug. 30, Robin Elliott of St. George will bring his CD release celebration for "Well Worn" to Rock City. Elliott will perform with several local musicians. He has been performing locally and internationally for some 40 years, playing an eclectic mix of country and blues.

Rock City’s lunch service extends until 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.
