Creekside benefit show to feature Dead Winter Carpenters

Special to the Sun

TAHOE CITY, Calif. and#8212;-Tahoe City’s Creekside Cooperative Charter School will host a fall benefit concert featuring Tahoe’s own Dead Winter Carpenters Friday, Nov. 18, at Tahoe City’s Dockside 700, located just below the Tahoe Yacht Club at 700 North Lake Blvd.

The five-piece songwriting Americana roots-rock band is gaining national attention, with a road tour playing at top-level festival and theater dates across the country. Following a recent sold-out date in San Francisco and an epic jam in Yosemite, Dead Winter Carpenters will head to venues in San Diego, Las Vegas, and Flagstaff, then on to shows in the Midwest including stops in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Nebraska and Colorado.

“Creekside is thrilled to host such dynamic and talented band and#8212; in the midst of a very booked schedule,” said Camille Taylor, director for Creekside. “Of course we’re hoping to raise funds for our students, but along the way we’d like to show the Truckee Tahoe community a really good time.”

Benefits tickets are $25 at the door or $20 in advance at New Moon Natural Foods in Truckee and Tahoe City. The show begins at 9 p.m. with Dockside 700 opening its restaurant at 6 p.m. for those wishing to dine from a special menu created for the evening.
