Adient Zoo headlines party after the fireworks

First there was the Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus. Now, it's Adient Zoo, which headlines Monday, July 4, at Mo's Place in South Lake Tahoe.

Don’t think an explosive Fourth of July party ends when the fireworks show is over. In Tahoe, that would be downright unpatriotic.

Three bands will perform at Mo’s Place in South Lake Tahoe. The headliner is Adient Zoo, featuring former members of Saturn Rising and Waiting for T.I.M.

“We’ve been writing a lot of new material that I’m personally, really excited to play,” said lanky guitarist Dan Green.

Adient Zoo’s style can’t be caged, other than by calling it indie rock.

“It’s tough to assign them to a specific genre, they’re all over the map musically, but I think it’s safe to say they’re sufficiently rocking,” Green said.

It’s only been around a year, but the Dead Winter Carpenters are already one of North Shore’s most popular bands. It is a combination of players from Truckee Tribe, Montana Slim and Rusty Strings.

“You can call it Americana rock,” said acoustic guitarist Jesse Dunn. “We have a touch of bluegrass and roots country and play mostly original tunes. Depending on the night, we can play covers.”

Lonesome Locomotive is a San Francisco-based jam band featuring James Whiton, the bass player form the Eric McFadden Trio. Drummer Erin Cassidy is in the group Something Different.

The evening’s entertainment also included performances by the Community Pro-Jekt and Juggling Jeff of Willy Wobble Circus.

“I’m really stoked to be involved with this show,” said promoter Ryan Kronenberg. “Mo’s is a great place for a Fourth of July celebration. It’s got a good vibe, is close to the beach and has a great central location.”
