Follow the paw prints
For the better part of 20 years, Bawb Pearce has led one of the Sacramento Valley’s best blues-rock attractions. Pearce and his three accomplices—Steve Wall, James Curry and Otis Mourning—make up the current incarnation of the Beer Dawgs. While most bands fear playing too much in the area, the Beer Dawgs maintain a regular regimen of four or five local shows a week, drawing capacity crowds regularly. From the band’s regular stint at the Torch Club to local biker gatherings, Time-Out Tavern and the Sands Regency in Reno, the band makes the rounds and then some. There’s a reason it’s flourished in a scene where countless others have failed, and you can find out why when the Beer Dawgs play Constable Jack’s, located at 515 Main Street in Newcastle, this Friday at 9 p.m. The cover is $6. So, head on up the hill toward Reno and stop your car just before the real traffic starts in the lovely ol’ town of Newcastle. You won’t be sorry. Call (916) 663-9385 for more information.
