Kings Rook Club Keeps Rock Rolling through the Holidays by Ryan Smith

Leave it to the fine folks at the Kings Rook Club to burn the yule logs bright, and to ring 2016 in right, with a pair of day-after-Christmas and day-after-New-Year’s holiday get-downs.

First, on Saturday, Dec. 26, the Rook hosts its 2015 Christmas party, a no-cover show for members that’s sure to bring tidings of joy to fans of local roots rock and hippie hop with performances by Erie’s own Daybreak Radio (they’re the roots rockers) and The Lower Eastside Connection (they’re the hippie hoppers).

Then, only one day into 2016, the Rook hosts another night of shouldn’t-miss live local music on Saturday, Jan. 2 with performances by Edinboro-based psychedelic funk-rock quintet Special Guest and Erie rockabilly outfit The Remnants.

Both evenings’ festivities kick off at 10 p.m., and ain’t over ’til they’re over.

Like all Rook shows, both events are 21-plus, and no-cover for members. 

Not a member yet? No worries: You can become one for the whole of 2016 for the very reasonable price of $10 at the door. And existing members can renew for the New Year for only $5.

Still haven’t figured out what to ask of Santa Claus (or your mom, or aunt, or grandma) for Christmas? Or, what to get that special someone? Well, there’s one more good idea for an Erie-made gift that just keeps on rockin’. – Ryan Smith
