Park Street Riot
Friday, November 29 / 9:30 pm-1:00 am
Formed in the Nor Cal foothills in 2016, Nevada City’s Park Street Riot has continually pushed its own sonic edge, establishing itself as one of the most dynamic, powerful and energetic new bands to emerge from the area. Their debut self-titled record released in March 2019 is a testament to the songwriting prowess of front woman Marielle Walker, as well as the groups varied individual influences and musicianship.
With a cohesive and catchy blend of garage rock, psychedelia and early 2000’s alternative, Park Street Riot’s live show is incomparably heavy and compelling. The melancholic and emotional power of Walker’s natural rock tenor jumps out with multi-dimensional intrigue. The band’s identity is then solidified by the melodic and thunderous rhythmic foundation of Ryan Donnelly, Alex Scribner and Ryan Sheridan. The music shines as a strange and exceptional jewel, bringing forth a realness and honesty representative of their own personal friendship and salt-of-the-earth sensibilities.
