Tahoe must be the place for Talking Heads tribute, Thick Newton
October 8, 2014
CRYSTAL BAY, Nev. — And you may find yourself in a former bowling alley.
Arcata, Calif., doesn't only export Lake Tahoe's entertainment figures. Naïve Melodies has emerged from behind the Redwood Curtain.
The Talking Heads tribute trio plays in the Crystal Bay Casino Crown Room on Saturday, Oct. 11, at 10 p.m.
Like Arcata's rain, fog and goodwill, the show is free in the venue that once housed a bowling alley back in the day.
Naïve Melodies was formed in Humboldt County in early in 2011, performing and honoring music created by Talking Heads.
According to previous reports, this three-piece dance machine does Talking Heads right and keeps the party and dancing going all night long.

Fans can expect to hear a wide range of material, from early art-rock, to radio hits, and everything in-between, all delivered with the central focus of preserving the artistic integrity of Talking Heads' music.
Afterward, concert-goers can head to the CBC's Red Room for a free after party with Thick Newton, an up-and-coming local band that defines itself with three simple words: Funk. Rock. Groove.
If that's not enough, perhaps the band's simple biography will grab your attention: "Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to lay it down with a single sound. Look in your local watering hole; it's a band, it's a party, it's THICK NEWTON."
