Whiskey Creek: Concert - Grimmis & True Violet


March 31st we’re having a party with a little something for everybody! Who appreciates musicians and a good time?!

GRIMMIS is a local metal band who many know and more should hear! They have opened for bands such as Strung Out and Guttermouth! They bring high energy music and you don’t want to miss the guitar skills in this group. GRIMMIS has invited LA based Indie/Folk band to play along side them in Bishop to introduce their Spring tour! This is a DUAL genre show so everybody who likes music can appreciate these two bands. They are all talented musicians, awesome down to earth people, and ready to party with the people in the Eastern Sierra. 

True Violet – indie/folk/blues all-girl band born in 2012. True Violet moved across the country from Florida, to take the next step in their music career. Broke, and a little scared, they armed themselves with their instruments and made Los Angeles their new home. True Violet consists of the rhythm sisters Kayla & Alayna Miller with "soul" sister Jessie Covets, lead singer. After releasing their self-titled debut album in 2015, the girls set out to book their independent South West headline tour. Fueled by passion and tenacity, they hold true to their music and dedicated fans. Keep your eyes and ears open for their self produced EP coming Spring 2018! 

There is a $10 door charge to help cover the bands travel expenses and ensure an awesome party! Hope to see you all there!  Drink specials too!

When: Sat., Mar. 31 (10pm)
Whiskey Creek Restaurant, 524 N. Main St., Bishop, CA
