July 16th, Birmingham, Alabama
Join us for the sixth season of Art on the Rocks, Birmingham’s most unique cultural social event. Art on the Rocks is held on select Friday evenings where you can enjoy socializing, gallery scavenger hunts, live music, art activities, fabulous finger foods from A Social Affair and Dale’s Seasoning, cocktails, and great people watching…all set against the Birmingham Museum of Art’s world-class permanent collection.
Join us for the first event on July 16th, featuring Dawes…
This Los Angeles quartet is made up of Taylor Goldsmith, 23, (vocals, guitar), his brother Griffin Goldsmith, 18, (drums, vocals), Wylie Gelber, 21 (bass), and Alex Casnoff, 22 (piano, vocals). A graceful and poetic set of Southern-tinged, yet firmly L.A., rock’n’roll, the Jonathan Wilson-produced North Hills is an electrifying and accomplished freshman effort. From the ruminative opener “That Western Skyline” to the joyous twang of “When You Call My Name” to the harmony-soaked “Take Me Out of the City,” North Hills makes it easy to hear why Daytrotter‘s Sean Moeller has already called it “hands down one of the finest records of 2009… Dawes is a perfect band.”
