Eight Gigs: Pinnacles
Fri., June 12, 8 p.m., Center for the Arts, $10-$12
Nevada City's Pinnacles started in 2013 and released the album Automaton in 2014. Fans of well-crafted art rock and harmonies will enjoy the vocal interplay between Justin Hunt (sBach, Them Hills, The Bears) and guitarist Robbie Landsburg (Ghost Pines) on standout tracks like “Johnstone” and the ever-so-catchy “Nocturne.” If you're a fan of Them Hills, By Sunlight or simply smart, angular rock, you are hereby summoned to check out this show. It's one of the many local showcases dubbed “The Discover Series” by the Center for the Arts—a great way to kick off the weekend. Opening are Number Station and Bull Goose Loony. 314 West Main Street in Grass Valley, www.facebook.com/pinnaclesband.
