South Shore event producers FNCTN will kick off its second annual winter music series with a pair of shows this week.

The FNCTN Winter Music Series launches year two with a performance by North Shore funk and rock outfit Thick Newton and South Shore rock band Strange Weather. The show starts at 9 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 17, at Lakeview Loft.

“Strange Weather is the newest band to hit the South Lake Tahoe music scene, and they’re hitting it hard,” according to a press release for the show. “The four members of Strange Weather share a passion for the sounds of 70’s hard rock and a work ethic which constantly has them trying to outdo themselves both in songwriting and live performance.”

FNCTN’s Mike Peron said he’s excited to bring the music series to the Stateline’s Lakeview Loft.

“It’s a pretty swanky place,” Peron said of the venue above Dart Beverage Center, which includes a game room, outdoor deck and stage among its amenities. “I like to describe it as ‘swanky with that Tahoe-cabin feel.’”

Lakeview Loft is located at 148 U.S. Highway 50 in Stateline. Tickets to Thursday’s show are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.

“It’ll be a solid community event with locals from both South and North Shore,” Peron said.

The kickoff continues starting at 9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 18, at Xhale Bar & Lounge in Stateline with DJs Wooshey and Gurbtron performing at the first Roger That’s House Party of the season.

Xhale is located between CVS and Harrah’s Lake Tahoe. Tickets to Friday’s show are $10.

The FNCTN Winter Music Series at the Lakeview Loft will continue every Thursday, starting Jan. 14 through March 17. Roger That’s House Parties will take place every other Friday from Jan. 15 through April 1.

A full line-up announcement for the shows is expected Jan. 1.
